It’s been one year! One great amazing year! So we celebrated in an adventure!
One year since I gave everything I owned to a church, except for what fit in the back of my car. I told everyone I knew that I had $2000, when really I only had $400. I knew that I couldn’t wait until I had saved more money, I just had to do it. I didn’t know what was going to happen or how I was going to make it happen, but one thing I did know was that I would not fail. I didn’t have a job, or necessarily a plan (when do I ever 😂) I packed Padmé and myself up in my little car and drove to Colorado. I walked dogs and taught swim lessons along the way. I stayed with my best friend in Montrose for two weeks, where I had a phone interview with my current company. I rented a room in Denver for $400, I busted my ass working three jobs to try and save up some money. I never felt down or sad, even on the days when I was unsure if I would have money to put gas in my car, to get to work, to make more money 😂 I knew it was all apart of the process. Within a month, I was moving into my one bedroom apartment in downtown Denver, right next to Union Station. Then I walked onto Millenium bridge and I cried. I couldn’t believe I had done it all by myself!
Now, a year later, the tears still come all the time, as left and right, I continue to make my dreams come true. I have a great job that I love, and that I’ve worked so hard for. I’ve met some of the most amazing people who are now my family, along with being able to reunite with some of my Navy family. In a couple of weeks I will be school bus shopping to fulfill my dream of renovating it into a tiny home! I can’t believe how it’s all played out, but in all actuality, THATS why I took the leap. I have never been happier!
I want to give a big shoutout to my girls @cogito.ego @kimmyfrr and @chelsea_pietrzak for constantly pushing me and helping me keep my head up. For taking my six am on the weekend phone calls, always reminding me of my worth, and motivating me from afar by just all of y’alls pure badassness. I’m so lucky to be loved and supported by women like y’all!
