I’m a huge fan of starting over. Always have been.
When life gets stagnant, or it starts going in a direction I may not like, I’ve always found it easy and completely natural to pack up and move on.
Some may call it running, but I thought of it was a fresh start.
It can be a move around the corner, down the block, across town, to a new town/city or even to a different state.
The distance I would move to start over never really mattered as much as the change of scenery and people. I was very fortunate to meet some incredible people along the way. Of course there were some sour apples, but those were easy enough to dispose of.
Now that I have a husband (one that I actually love and don’t want to be without) and kids, I can’t just pack up and start again.
That has probably been the hardest thing about being a parent for me. When I grow bored with a place or situations surrounding me, I now have to stay and make things work.
Sure I could move with a husband and kids, hell we have several times, but not on a whim. It is a lot trickier with others in tow.
Before if I had to sleep in the car or only had $5 to my name, it was only me that suffered. I can’t and won’t put my kids through that.
So, what’s a girl who can longer just start over do?
I figure while I’m transforming my body and mind, my hair can have a fresh start as well!
