Moving to Dallas

Last July I was invited by my best friend, Jensen Porter, to visit a Church in Mineral Wells, Texas. He was going to speak and flew me out for the weekend. Going there I had no expectations other than having fun and meeting new people. At the time I was having a small crisis within myself, which was feeling miserable where I lived and needing a change. With that being said, a topic of conversation I had amongst these strangers and now more best friends, was trying to figure out where I needed to be. I also distinctly remember talking about the position my mother was in and how the move we had made was wrong for all of us. We had expected the best and were completely let down. By the end of the weekend, I knew moving here and getting to know all of these wonderful people was what I had to do. I didn't think more into my decision until I was completely moved a couple weeks later. I am the type of person to overthink and get way too anxious over any decision making but did not need more than a couple days to know I had to go. To move from my mom, take a risk and hope that it would all make sense, at least one day. Today looking back 11 months later, it was the best decision I have made in my life. I was extremely uncomfortable once I got here and will probably not feel comfortable where I am for years to come. But as said by so many, growth comes from being uncomfortable and being forced to change and become a better version of yourself. Jensen recently told me how much I have in fact changed and how proud he is of me. The best compliment I have gotten yet. I am always questioning if I am doing okay and hearing those words out of him and many others who I respect so much helps me to know that making this very impulsive decision was best for me and most likely the foundation of the rest of my life. A life that I am confident will be fruitful and blessed. I'm always reminded of how everything happens for a reason. If I had never been invited, who knows where I would be.
