It's here, it's here! My new design, little home on the web is finished and ready to debut. The fabulous Noor did a wonderful job in my opinion. What do y'all think?
Saying a lot has happened in the last several months would be an absolute understatement. Not only did I leave my island home to start a new adventure with my girl Lorena in California, but ended up not being able to survive financially. I finally made the decision to move home to the beautiful Natural State of Arkansas. It was the last thing I wanted to do, put up the white flag and come home. I didn't want to live in Arkansas, I wanted to see the world and experience things I've never experienced before. Taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture, this was the best option for me.
I had an amazing time in Hawaii. I learned so much about myself and the life I imagined for myself while spending 4 years on the beautiful islands. It was such a growing experience for me that I will be forever grateful for, and will cherish the memories until the end of my days. If I'm going to be honest, I miss it more than I thought I would. The hikes, the feel of the ocean, the amazing food, the welcoming people. It definitely had it's downs, but going from the island back to the mainland, it was like reverse culture shock for me.
Living in California was rough. I'm not being dramatic about this people, I struggled. I had more hardships than good times and I was basically stressed for the majority of it. I even had a hard time grocery shopping, it was a mess.
Finally I came to the realization that a move home would be in my best interest. I can save money. I can focus on my personal training certification. And I can be with my support system again. Being home with my family has been very healing to me. It was exactly what I needed after enduring months and months of hardships and stress. Now that I've been home for a couple months it has proven to be the best choice I've made in a very long time. Everything has been falling into place perfectly in every aspect of my life (but I'll go into that a little later).
I'm excited to share this new journey with you, there is so much to come!!
