The Ferris Wheel of My Life
Lately, I've been feeling a lot of emotions. Am I making the right decision? Is this smart? Am I being crazy? Will this be a worthwhile adventure? I don't have an answer to that just yet, but I do know that I'd like to try. Even though I'm scared.
I'm also terrified of heights. This is somewhat new, and it started after falling and breaking my ankle. But I have always been a scaredy cat when it comes to rides. Then I saw this quote:
“Life is like a ferris wheel… sometimes you're up, sometimes you're down. In the end, you just have to learn to enjoy the ride.”
This is something I have to constantly remind myself, especially as I'm making this huge change in my life. But for now, I think it's worth it.
The other day when I revealed that we're moving to Nashville a lot of you were like, cool, now what? Well, to be honest, we don't have all the answers, but we are trying to figure it out. I am freaking out just a smidge. The first reason being because I've never moved out of Dallas. The second? Well, we're doing it kind of quickly. As in, we're trying to move by August 1st.
This is a lofty goal since Michael has never even stepped foot in the state of Tennessee. You guys have asked me some questions so I thought today I'd do some explaining.
Are you leaving Dallas for good?
No, we love Texas, our family, and our friends and have every intention of moving back.
Then why are you leaving?
Because we want to go on an adventure and why not? This is fairly hard to answer in just a paragraph or two, but if you read this, you'll get the general idea of why. YOLO? …Sorry.
Are you selling your house?
No, we are renting it. Just in case something happens and this was the worst idea we've ever had, we can move back fairly easily.
Are you taking the dogs?
Hell yes. They are my children! Where I go, they go.
Have you ever been to Nashville?
Yes, a couple times for work. Both were very brief stays.
Where will you live?
You tell me…! We haven't picked out a place yet, but we're working on it. Suggestions welcome.
Do you own cowboy boots?
I'm from Texas. We invented them.
Do you have any friends there?
Yes, a few. If you want to be friends that would be awesome.
How will you listen to EDM music in Nashville?
I don't know, I'm going to have to beg my friends Steve Aoki and David Guetta to come play in Nashville.
What about your job?
I work 100% from home, and now Michael will too.
Will you visit Dallas?
I will of course be visiting often! My 10 year high school reunion is coming up, I'm in a wedding, my mom has a book signing (she's cooler than me) and I'm sure I'll be back all the time. Have to visit this one from time to time too!
