We Want To Move

We are looking for a new place…

Not too long ago one weekend my SO and I went to a beautiful wedding where he made a touching speech to the bride and groom.  In his speech my SO mentioned that he has been away from the East Coast for about 2 years and he missed home very much but he came to realize that a single place does not make a home but people you love are what makes a home.  

When I seen my lovey get emotional it got me thinking how I could really move away from California.  I would miss my family so much I love them with all of my heart, but just because I live elsewhere does not mean that we are not family anymore.  I would hope that if I did infact move to a new state that there would be no hard feelings, it’s not like I would not come back every chance I get and invite whoever to come out when they wanted.  

The Pro about moving is that life would be affordable, and I could go to school and study my passion.  To top it off I would finally be able to make a career with my passion of cosmetics. 15 years ago I was graduating high school and was looking into a cosmetology course in my local area but life happens and it didn’t happen then.  My Nana passed and I became depressed again for the second time in life, and I pushed my dreams to the side as if I didn’t deserve to go after them and focused on distracting myself with work and making money to survive.  Then well you know the rest of my story from my previous blogs.

The one thing that I never could give up was the love of cosmetics.  The growth the packaging the brands everything has had me intrigued since I was a young child messing around with my Nana’s cosmetics.  

Another Pro about moving to another state is the space and time to concentrate on my YouTube channel and my blog.  Here where we live I basically have a desk with makeup drawers, a small corner with a few yards of fabric as my filming space, and I type wherever I can for my blog.  If we were to move we could afford simply more.  Also who wants to raise kids in a place you can barely afford and have no space for them.

Now the con’s and there are not many but just two… 1) I would miss my family and friends with all of my heart especially my goddaughter I do not know how I could be so far away from her.  She would always be invited to visit and go to college near us and stay with us.  2) My mom’s medical is all set up here so it would be a journey to find the free medical wherever we go and most important good doctors, but then again you never know we could find the answers we have been endlessly searching for here.  Okay one more con.. I have been working at my current career for more than 4 years and have had some success and I just do not know if I am ready to give it all up right now, who knows where it could go.  

With life being a bunch who knows well actually it’s more like Only God Knows.. Your guess is as good as mine as to where we will end up.  I know that I deserve to go after my passion in life but I ponder with not losing all the hard work I have put into my current career path.  I would love to hear your input on what I should do!!

I love and appreciate you guys.  Please don’t forget to make life AMAZING and STOP AND SMELL THE FLOWERS!
