A new move~

Monday, November 04, 2013

I made a big move in my life last month; I moved from SC to NJ. There have been many emotions... up and down... getting used to a whole new world! I love my new found family. Three years ago, my cousin and I reconnected on FB. We had not seen each other in around 45 years. The joy I felt then is indescribable. My cousin from the first week wanted me to come upstate to live with her and her family. I finally made the move. I have been in New Jersey for almost three weeks now and I believe I am truly home! Yesterday it occurred to me, that through the stress of all that I was living, I had once again put my health on the back burner. I brought up my Spark page and began updating. I logged good and bad of everything I did today. I believe that I can finally (really) begin to concentrate on me for a change. I have the support that I have needed in years past, and now, I will commit to becoming the woman (inside and out) that I need to be... that I want to be!

    No wonder you are all charged up! A move like that is amazing... but not in this weather! LOL. My family is in Western NY state, and they have already called to gripe about snow. I did not laugh at them because it's dipping here today as well. First day we've run the heat just to keep the house above 66 degrees. It was 61 when I went looking for hot coffee!!

    So happy you have found your family and reconnected. That is truly magical!

    Peace and Hugs,

    Did you say you are in Southern Jersy? By the shore? Near Princeton...?There are so many completely different areas....from the slums of Paterson, to the shore, to Princetone the cities like Hackensack (where I grew up) to the horse farms and rolling hills of NW NJ where my parents now live in Sussex County. It's a great state...My parents used to call it the "armpit" of the country. But that is just some areas, there are more beautiful ones than not.

    I really hope you like it and find some peace while being surrounded by family.
