Well this week is the week, the week we finally get to move out of Findlay. We have both wanted this for so long, long before we even met. I believe it’s happening at the most perfect time for both of us. We both had to find each other first before it could happen. The stars had to align, our timelines had to meet up, ya know all the weird cosmic love stuff haha. So we finally get to move. Yay! Other than feeling incredibly excited as I sit here surrounded by boxes I’m also a little scared. It’s not an incredibly far move by any means but it’s also not Findlay. The place I’ve lived since I was 19, before that I lived in an even smaller town but worked in Findlay. So it’s not familiar and comfortable like I’ve been used to my whole life. I won’t go places and know at least a few people when I walk in. The population in Columbus as of 2014 was 825,000 compared to Findlay of 41,202. There will be so much more life surrounding us in Columbus, which means more opportunity. It definitely feels like the right move. Will Columbus be our forever, who knows, but it’s our right now. That’s the fun thing with life, it’s ever changing with so many opportunities ahead if you’re willing to take them.
I never want to feel stuck again in life. I never want to feel like “welp this is it”, ever again. I’m someone that always wants to evolve and do new things. I felt like I was at a dead end in my previous relationship and I never want to feel that way again. I still stand by some drunken words I said one night, “I’m a bird that can’t be caged.” I’m a free spirit, always changing and going where the wind takes me. It’s nice to have a partner that feels the same way. He’s a free bird just like me, always striving to be better, for change, for growth, for new adventures. We are truly two peas in a pod. I think there are many adventures to be had with Nick and I can’t wait. Columbus is just the beginning for us.
I haven’t really felt like blogging publicly these last couple weeks. A lot of my inner struggles have come to pass over the last few months and some things are just to private to share. I’ve had some ideas but nothing has really spawned from them yet. Maybe this new chapter in life will create some new blog worthy material. Wish us luck!
