Nashville Dreaming

I am moving to Nashville!!!

I’m off to pursue my dream of becoming a country music artist….

JUST KIDDING!!! (I wish I could sing but maybe I’ll learn a thing or two in Nashvegas.)

I made the announcement about a month ago and I know some people are questioning as to why I am moving but it is time for me to start a new journey.

After much prayer, tears, frustration and some more prayer, I have finally decided as to what my next move will be. There were a few different options that I was considering but Nashville it shall be.

Nashville has so much culture and heart. It’s a city filled with people chasing after their dreams and desires. It’s a city with so much history and life. It’s a city that has my heart for this season. I’m not entirely sure as to how long I will stay there but what I do know is that I need to get there soon, and that’s what I shall do.

Come January 8th, I’ll have my car packed up with all my belongings and off towards the east will I drive.

Off to new adventures, off to meet new people and see new places. Off to begin a completely new chapter in my life. Off to leave the old behind and seek the new.

Although I am excited and at the same time a bit terrified of what will happen next, there is a part of me that will miss Vegas. Through these past eight years, it has brought much joy and struggle. It hasn’t always been the most amazing place to live in but it has been for the best.

We moved to Vegas when I was 16. I hated my parents for making me leave my friends and the city that I called home. But little did I know that moving here would be the best thing that could have happened to our family.

I left Vegas at the age of 21 to Australia. My hopes were to never return to Vegas but God had other plans for sure. I didn’t understand what had happened and it took me a couple of years to get on my feet again. I’ve decided that I can no longer just go through the motions and stay put. All the daily routines and nonsense are killing me inside. I am too creative and too eclectic to be content working in an office, answering phones. I have a need to create and find the beauty in ordinary things. It took me a while to figure it out but thats what I know. And so, I will begin an Interior Design course at one of the local art colleges. I can’t wait to start to learn more in an area that I am passionate about.

I will soon be 25, so I figured it’s time I get my $#!+ together and make something worthwhile happen.

How it will all work out, well that I am not totally sure but all I know is that this is the next step that I must take.

So Nashville, get ready….’cause here I come…..

 

“It’s funny how certain cities get under your skin. I’ve been around, but there’s something captivating about Nashville, Tennessee – a ‘crazy town’, as locals call it, bursting with culture, history and Southern charm (the kind of charm that prompts locals – easily the friendliest people I’ve ever encountered.”
