I am so appreciate to live where I do - in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. For the first time in my life I choose where I wanted to live because I wanted to live there not because I wanted a job that was there. After doing my fair share of moving after high school (I think 11 total moves and 7 moves between states/countries), I decided that it was time for me to live in a place that I would love and thrive in, and no matter what I was "doing" this was where I wanted to be. After two years of living here, I'm still in love with Evergreen. The visitors we had today are one of the things I love about it so much here.
We had herds of both deer and elk in our yard, hawks sitting in the pine trees as well as circling around the yard, and there were magpies and crows too. Being able to live in a place that has an abundance of wildlife makes me feel closer to the universe and like we are doing something right here. In my opinion animals are our friends. I love to see them all over town & out on the hiking trails. Throughout the seasons love to hear the young elk call to their mothers in their high pitched way, male elk bugling, foxes laughing, owls hooing and birds soaring and singing to each other. I love to see the foxes staring at me through the window, my dogs watching the elk in the yard, and to come home and find a deer waiting for me on my front porch.
So today, I am grateful to myself for the courage and strength I had in leaving my collegiate coaching career (something I am passionate about) and making this cross country move to Evergreen. I'm happy to be here, I'm happy about the transformation I am making on this journey, and for being in a place that feels right in my heart in so many ways. While we can make a home inside ourselves, it also feels wonderful to be in an environment that supports the kind of life I want to lead and the kind of person I want to be.
Below are images you can scroll through. So now that I've shared some pictures with you of the friends that came to visit today I'd like you to share your thoughts with me. Have you ever felt this way - that you are truly where you are meant to be? Or are you searching for that right fit for you? Do you know you want to make a change but you're not sure what that change will be? Are you on your path to transformation? I'd love to hear about it in the comments section below :)
