Making A Change In Your Life Isn’t Always A Bad Thing

I’m sitting in the clubhouse at my new apartment in Greenville.

Instead of thinking about the emotional stress I’m about to endure when we officially move, I’m focusing on finding a job, my new life with my husband, hanging out with our friends who live here and making memories.

If I were to think about how I won’t see my family or friends for a long time, it would do nothing but make me sad.

Here’s my advice to you: don’t fear change.

Change is hard, but instead of dwelling on the negatives, you should think about why you made the decision in the first place or why the decision was presented in front of your face. You must think to yourself, maybe this meant to be.

My husband and I came to Greenville last April for an engagement shoot one of my friends offered to do for us. We loved the area, but didn’t think much into it. We were going through a hard time at that point because he was about to lose my job and we had to move back home.

I know that I had a very difficult time grasping the fact that we needed to move back home until our wedding. But, then, we re-visited the option of Greenville in January again.

After discussing it and him getting an interview in Asheville to become a home inspector, we finally decided to take the leap and move here. We wanted to meet in the middle for a place to live and Greenville was it!

Now, we took a chance because he’s still going for his certificate and I do not have a job here – yet.

But, something told me it was okay. Something told me that I had to take this risk because well, I think it’s meant to be. I know I’ll find something eventually. Not to mention, it’s a great opportunity for him and whenever he talks about it, he lights up.

Nothing matters to me more than when my husband is happy. If he’s happy, I’m happy. And, that’s part of marriage. You need to make changes to benefit your partner. You need to sacrifice in order to help your partner out.

So, here we are, in Greenville.

Visiting The Greenway Trail

It’s not difficult to find the beauty in Murfreesboro because it’s all around. When you’re driving down Old Fort Parkway, you can see the clear blue sky or when you merge onto 24, you can see scenic landscapes as well as farms. So, once I saw photos of the Greenway trails, I associated this park to beauty!

And, Last week when I showed Brett photos of the Greenway, he was intrigued just as I. So, this past Sunday, we took our bikes and went over to see what this trail had to offer.  We’re both into health & fitness and wanted to burn some major calories, so we figured biking would be perfect!

While biking, I felt this rush of energy.  I began thinking about how you can be living somewhere one moment and then a different location in the next.  A few weeks ago, we were living in Pennsylvania doing the same thing day after day and not getting time to enjoy and relax! Now, we were in a beautiful town biking in a gorgeous park.

When we arrived at the waterfall, it took my breath away. I loved the calm feeling that overcame my entire body. I even felt chills as we stood in front of the falling water. It was a clear and crisp afternoon, so it was an ideal setting.

In another scene, we went to the bridge, which lead us to more trails. I’d say we biked about 10 miles and I was happy to get up and go! For the last few months, I’ve had a desk job and believe I gained some weight because I was sitting all day. I know that you place your butt on the bike as well, but you’re constantly moving which uses up energy.

Overall, I say we loved the Greenway and took plenty of photos to prove its beauty! How could you not love going to park where it’s quiet and you may think? Some of the time we didn’t even talk because we were soaking it all in.

I’m thrilled to be living in Murfreesboro and I know Brett feels the same.

Until next time…

Love,
