I was looking at my blog today and it really has been a year since I've been on here and updated my life! The last 2 years have been quite the journey for me. I left anything and everything I ever wanted and cared about to come to nothing. Well I would ask myself everyday what in the world I was doing here in Utah. It only took me a year and four months to forget about why I moved here and let life take me where it needs to go. In November 2009 my great aunt that lived up here went through a rough surgery and I went and saw her in the care center. She was recovering and getting better. I went home for an early christmas and she was supposed to be home by the time I got back to Utah. I called her house to check on her and nothing so I called the care center and she was still there. Her heath was declining and she ended up passing away. Through all of this I began to realize why I came here. I met an amazing family that took care of Larsen and became mine. I had a place here. I didn't feel so alone. I had a family to be with, to tell my trials, to go to church with, to have sunday dinners and take sunday naps with. I also met my best friend through all of this and he has been such a great answer to my prayers. I have learned and I have grown so much in the past few years and now I know it is again time to move on.
As I was driving home to Utah from a quick 4th of july visit to Arizona, I reflected on the last few years. I really miss being close to my family and being apart of my niece and nephews lives. I am here 13 hours away from my family and the only thing that I am staying here for is a job. I realized that its time to come back to Arizona. I feel like I have accomplished the things that I came here to do and I'm ready for the next chapter in my life. I don't know whats to come for me but I know I need to start progressing toward something different right now and I'm excited to find out what it is.
I have really made so many good friends here and I am going to be really sad to leave. Today for some reason I was reflecting on all of the people that I have become friends with that have had an impact on me and helped me progress. I wouldn't be the person I am today with out them!
