Do you ever feel like you’ve been on the go for so long. . . that when you have a second to sit and process, you feel a little lost?
That is exactly where I find myself, right now.
In 2008, I graduated from Undergrad and jumped straight into my Graduate program at Saint Louis University
Love these girls. . . still miss you!!
I met Zach during my time at SLU and knew that right when when I graduated, I’d be moving to Chicago to be with him.

About 6 months after I moved to Chicago, we thought that even living in different apartments was for the birds, and decided that once we were finished with our current leases we would move in together. Enter house hunting, and the anxiety of living with a boy!
Nearly a year into our lease, Zach popped the question and we were engaged 🙂
And subsequently, decided that now was the time to make the biggest move of our lives: Denver.
Thankfully, the transition to Denver was fairly easy thanks to us both having jobs and amazing families.
But of course, wedding planning moved into full force quickly once we were settled.
So you see . . . my life has been one-thing-to-the-next for really my entire adult life.
I tell you this whole long story because for as long as I can remember, I’ve been working towards or planning for something. . . the next big thing. But now, for the first time in my adult life, I don’t have that next big thing.
Part of me is living in the moment, and basking in the quiet. I need for nothing right now. I am happier than I have ever been, and that is pretty amazing.
But another part of me wants that next big thing.
I just have no idea what that next big thing may be. . .
So — I’m currently searching for inspiration.
What am I looking for?
A new “thing” that provides growth and self-improvement
Something that I can do to become a better person. For myself. For my husband. For everyone.
Is it through my job? Career?
Through the blog? I am inspired by my blog, readers, other blogs, and the community EVERYDAY. If only I could make my blog, writing, and my job one in the same 🙂
Through my family and friends? Lord knows I’ve got amazing people in both.
I have no idea — but I’m ready for whatever it is when I find it.
Question of the Day: Anyone else been in a spot like this? Am I totally crazy?
If you HAVE been in a similar spot — what’d you do?
