"I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again." ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
These words resonate deep within my soul, but not because I am living a life I'm not proud of, but rather because I'm living a life that has forced me to start over.
Moving to a new town (in a new state) where I don't know a soul has proven to be difficult, as I attempt to find my place. I'd love it if a neighbor took the initiative and came over to ask me about myself and my family, or if a fellow mommy from M's preschool suggested an afternoon playdate so that the kids could entertain themselves while we slowly built a friendship from scratch -- but that hasn't happened, yet.
I don't want to go as far as changing who I am to adapt to this new place, although I'm willing to give a little if that's what it takes because adjusting isn't such a bad thing. I can only hope that this picture-perfect community I've joined learns to open its arms to a newbie, so that I can begin to build a life for my family that will bring us joy, contentment and peace.
Hope that you have a wonderful weekend full of friendship and fun.
