Health and wellness
Feb. 16, 2016
So, 5 months ago (has it been 5 months already?!) I moved my family from Ohio to Colorado. It wasn't an easy decision. It took a lot of planning, especially because there were so many of us- two adults, four children- and because our lives were so built up in Ohio. We had a lot of friends, (Avon, Ohio is a very smal town, we knew everyone by year two), we had my husband's family, and the kids had so many friends that they were growing up with (after all we were in Ohio 9 years). It was tough, but one that we (my husband and I) felt we had to make. We wanted a better lifestyle, more opportunities, better weather, and I really wanted to be near my family (they either live here or in California).
It's been a tough 5 months. Lots of adjusting. My high schooler was very upset to leave his friends, but he's making new ones and trying to make the best of it. What a trooper! But, everyday, when the sun comes out (not much sun in Ohio) and I look out and see the mountains, and breathe in the fresh air, and not to mention that being a Holistic Nutritionist definately has lots of benefits here, everyone is into health, YAY!! I love the fact that I love living where I am. We get outside everyday, we walk or bike or run everywhere! I love looking around and seeing eveyone enjoying life, loving the outdoors and in general thrilled to be alive! I can't wait to see what the next few months will bring!
So even though its been a tough adjustment (change is always hard), I'm so glad we did it. Life is an advnture and if you're not happy where you are, make the change. Its always tough getting out of your comfort zone, but what is that famous saying "Life begins when you step out of your comfort zone" Hurrah!
