Leaving Michigan to start my life with Jim was a no brainer … but that doesn’t at all mean that it was easy. To this day, it’s one of the most difficult things I’ve gone through in life.
And Denver with Jim was amazing… but it was his city, not mine. Truly a MAJOR adjustment. I think anyone would be overwhelmed with the transition, let alone someone who has lived with anxiety her whole life.
So Denver without Jim was beyond miserable. It made moving to Boulder a no brainer. An immediate sense of peace hit me. People noticed the shift instantly.
It was the beginning of Covid, so I focused on exploring my surroundings. And establishing myself professionally for the first time since leaving home. Griefhab was born. Then The Be Ruthless Show.
But it didn’t feel like home. I didn’t feel safe. As much as I loved being in the middle of nowhere, I didn’t love being in the middle of nowhere…
And this move was a bigger leap, because I don’t know this part of the state. I know less than a handful of people near me. But I listened to my gut. I trusted the universe.
And for the first time in SO long – It. Feels. Like. Home. ❤️ It feels like my time to focus on me – not on just surviving. Not on my business.
On ME. On making my life here.
That’s something I haven’t said – or felt – since losing Jim. And I can look back and so clearly see my path here and all the growth I e made along the way.
You can’t see it while you’re in it. But that doesn’t mean your path isn’t there. Trust your gut! Listen to your body. Find your tribe.
That’s such a huge piece of the puzzle… connecting with people who get it! With people who accept you exactly as you are. People who encourage you to follow your path.
