The Next Episode

I know that I have been a terrible blogger since August. Life has been insanely busy with lots of traveling and changes. I promise my story isn’t over yet. In fact, a new chapter is just beginning.

Most of my adult life has been spent in Arkansas – ten years in fact. The last five years have been here in Little Rock, and I have met some truly incredible people. I live a great life, and know amazing people who make my life (and me) better. However, I’ve accepted a new job and will be moving to Nashville, TN! I am so excited! For those of you that don’t know, I lived in Tennessee as a child and grew up in a small town just thirty minutes outside of Nashville. In a way, it’s like I’m going home again. I’ve never lived in Nashville as an adult so I’m excited to explore the city and start a new chapter in my life. I’m pretty emotional right now as this is bittersweet, but I firmly believe that this is the right move for me.

Stay tuned for more Voluptuous Misadventures. I guarantee that there will be plenty of stories to tell about my adventures in the Music City.

Fearless

Someone told me recently that I was fearless. Although I appreciate the compliment, it’s not accurate. I am not without fear. I worry about and fear things constantly. However, even though I fear the idea of something, I do it anyway (most of the time). Because really what is the point? I’m trying so hard to live a life that lives up to my expectations and not societal expectations.  But that can be difficult at times. I’m nowhere near my goal weight, but I have accomplished many of the goals that I set for myself at the beginning of 2015. Plus I have three months to finish off some other important goals. I would not have been able to do so if I would have lived my year in fear. There’s just absolutely no way.  Like I said, I feared a lot of things. I am not without fear, but I did a lot of the things I feared anyway.

 

Some fear (and good common sense) is healthy and keeps me from doing idiotic things that could get me killed, but I don’t want to miss out on an amazing experience because I was afraid. So I am writing this post today to challenge each of you to try out something new during the month of October (safely please). Step outside of your comfort zone no matter how small.  And I’ll try to do the same.
