This was a writing Shine challenge but honestly,
I should've written this ages ago.

Remember when I went to work at Disneyland last year?
And how it was one of the best experiences of my life??

Did I really write about the hard choice it was for me to make?

So I'll write it here:

I've never been one to embrace change.
Ask my mother and husband.
I loathe it sometimes.
(And yet I love being spontaneous too...
but I digress)
And moving to another state,
away from everything I knew and was used to...
Yeah that was definitely not my idea of a good time.
But my mother and my friend Morgan
convinced me that it would be worth it in the long run,
and that I would regret it for the rest of my life if I didn't.

Now you might be asking:
Why on earth was she so freaked out!?
Well, let's just say that I'm a total homebody,
and kinda anti-social.
Shocking I know but true.
I was terrified of having to make all new friends again,
and learn how a whole different lifestyle worked,
and my first time on a city bus!

After tearful prayers and a lot of fasting,
I knew I should go
regardless of my fear.
I had to trust in the Lord to help me through the hard times that would come
and through the fun times too ;)

Needless to say, 
thanks to my trust in Him,
I grew more than I ever could've at home.
I met so many amazing people,
and got engaged at the Happiest Place on Earth.
How could it get any better??

Now I'm trying to put my trust in Him again
as we're hoping to add to our little family ;)
I'm super impatient but when He says it's time, 
it will happen and I have to keep remembering that.
