It is move out day, and I can’t bring myself to leave the safety of my moms home. It is surreal to think I won’t be here everyday. I’ve lived in this room since the age of four, and now I’m moving to an entirely different city. Granted it’s a fifteen minute drive, but fifteen minutes are fifteen more apart from my mom then I have ever been.

When the time comes for you to make a change, to grow, to do your life in a different way, the universe will make you so uncomfortable, so unhappy, you will eventually have no choice. If you insist on staying in a place you no longer belong in, if you do not grow the courage to do what is necessary to propel yourself forward, you will suffer the consequences, whatever they may be.
