One Woman.

One Woman.

I was out walking in sixty degree weather in December, and saw this view above. I decided to share here because I'm so happy living in a place where sixty and seventy degree weather happens in December.

It feels great. Yet I also miss the snow. Especially at Christmas. I'm a New York girl. So I grew up making snowmen, angels in the snow, playing with my dog and brothers in the snow, sledding, and you know, all the snow stuff!

I miss fun in the snow, but I'm also content being 'adulting' and living in a warmer environment. I believe weather helps my mood. A whole lot. And I remember the day I promised myself I would not be in NY much longer. I was scraping the 'hardest ever' ice off my windshield and about to curse- and I said "Never again!" This too shall pass... and it did. After traveling the world and seeing such beauty in other places and warmth, I decided it had to happen and happen, soon. So one more winter passed, and I was gone.

Being my own woman has changed my life. It's been even more of a challenge, as I got married ( the second time) and figuring that out. Yet I'm grateful for the spaces in life that taught me how to do that. Yes, I may have learned the hard way, but what an adventure!

When i moved the first time, I even left my "then" boyfriend.. I wasn't playing.....I was serious about making life changes. And I knew I wasn't going to let anyone change that vision I had of being me. I contemplated long and hard that after living for someone else, previously...for about ten years of my life, and realized that chapter of my life was over. So I moved to DC. Washing DC was my place of loss and yet a place of giving birth. And ten months later I moved to Texas. I became a FREE woman, and ...Loved every bit of it! Yeah, I followed a guy out there I loved, but I got my own place my own job, had just bought my own car.. and I was SET. If it didn't work out , it would be because God didn't want it to.

I don't regret those changes.

They grew me up, matured me. Made me strong. And here I am. Happy. Still pursuing ME.
