Write about taking a gamble on something.
LOL this prompt was tailor-made for the big move my husband and I made this past summer. A lot of people asked WHY we decided to move out to Las Vegas. And we always give various answers. The truth is?
I needed to belong somewhere. And I have never truly felt like I belonged in Ohio. And on top of that…I outgrew it. It wasn’t the state for me. Living with (undiagnosed) Seasonal Affective Disorder and living in a state where the sun only shines maybe six months out of the year was not a good combination for me. It’s not a good combo for a LOT of people but most people tend not to move cross country just to fix their mental health.
I wanted a change. I wanted to refresh my life and move forward. Ohio had a lot of baggage and drama and tragedy for me, it lost its luster. I needed a change. One great way to do that is to pick up your life and move it across the country.
And I gotta say…so far the gamble is paying off. My husband and I are happier than ever, he loves his new job, I love my work, our dog loves it and we all can’t wait to experience winter in the desert!
