headed back to california.
happy and sad at the same time.
sad to leave my family and a life of simplicity and love, of knowing where i undoubtedly belong…
happy to go back and make some much-needed changes…i feel a change in the air.
i’ve already made some changes…
i’m trying to be more positive about life and the people around me, i’m trying to give people the benefit of the doubt, i’m realizing that it doesn’t do me any good to get worked up over situations i cannot control…
i’ve outgrown friends who don’t “get me”, but made amazing bonds with people i have yet to meet.
i’ve chosen to remove myself from a relationship that wasn’t positive for either person involved. which was hard…so hard.
and maybe i’ll revisit those relationships in the future, maybe i won’t.
the paths i’ve travelled down have brought me to the exact place i’m supposed to be.
and for that, i do not have any regrets.
although some decisions are hurting my heart, others are allowing me to move on and be the person i want to be.
i just needed to purge some thoughts.
now i feel better.
going home really cleared my head and allowed me to see pieces of the puzzle that weren’t fitting a few weeks ago.
and i’m figuring it out on my own.
that is the biggest feat of all!
isn’t it interesting that just when you think you have your life figured out…another challenge or person or idea changes it all?
ahhhhhh…i like life lessons and changes, as they allow me to grow.
and realizing the lesson, many times after the fact, is a fantastic AH-HA! moment.
and just so you know…i’m still the same paige. i get heavy, i get bored, i change my hobbies, i change my style, i get cranky, i can be cynical…but i’m never gonna be opposed to wearing my mustache.
see, i’m still silly.
