Moving on...

Ok. So I know I normally "Vlog" or whatever the hell you call it but I feel like typing this one out.
I am moving into a new apartment tomorrow (upstairs, so it's not REALLY moving) and it made me realize what I have done so far since I have been living in LA.

I had to step away from the boxes of little horror trinkets and shoes to put these feeling out in the world.
I feel proud of myself.
I moved to the "big city" and I think I am doing pretty ok.
I am not homeless. Ha.
I am moving in with a wonderfully supportive friend of mine.
I have an amazing boyfriend, whom I care for more than most. He is my best friend.
I finished school. (Take that people who told me my crazy ways would never take me anywhere!!)
I have been working with actors and musicians that I have admired since I can remember.
It is all pretty unreal to me.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.
My life is just beginning at age 25.

I just got off the phone with my little sister, Aurora, and we were talking about moving on to bigger and better things.

Perusing this life style and my dreams have never been a difficult thing for me.
It never really took much thought.
Most of this "big move" has been completely organic and fluid to me.
I never struggled with leaving Oklahoma and the major changes that I encountered when I came here.
I craved the change more than anything in my life.

I cannot believe what I have done in the past year.
In early April it will be the 1 year anniversary of the day my little sister went into the hospital for the first time out of those horrific 3-4 months.

She came out on top.

She is a more beautiful and stronger person than she EVER was.
Being there for here was intense and hard.
Honestly, one of the most difficult things I have done.
I told myself if she didn't get better than I was going to put my life on hold and stay with her until she was better.
BUT she got better...
And I moved away.

I guess I am not really sure where I am going with all of this rambling.

It just goes to show that amazing things happen everyday.

To all of my family and friends who have always supported me,
I thank all of you and everything that you do for me everyday. Even if I am not with you, you are with me.
Lots of you are tattooed on my right arm...and for those of you that are not. You will be soon.


p.s. Thank baby Jesus for spell check. Sorry about the bad grammar. I'll "vlog" next time.

You deserve all the best in the world. I am glad that you have realized you did what was best for yourself. You have to be selfish sometimes in your life. It worked for the best. I hope to get to meet you again sometime in the near future. :) Thanks for all the great stories and sharing yourself with us.

You say that you don't know where you are going with this blog, but it seemed very reflective, a look back. And more than that, a way to show gratitude for the people and joy in your life. I enjoyed reading it =)

Sometimes taking big leaps have to be done without looking over your shoulder to see what you are leaving behind. Also a parachute helps...just in case.
You seem to have your world firmly in your hands. Very cool.
