New Beginnings...

"Courage is not simply one of the virtues but the form of every virtue at the
testing point, which means at the point of highest reality." - C.S. Lewis

I've already hit a realization after just moving thousands of miles away. Something everyone has heard and offered as advice to others. Everything has a purpose.

A new beginning, full of adventure, wishful thinking, disappointment, and adjustment.

"Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't
practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but
nothing consistently without courage." - Maya Angelou

Funny you can know what is to come but not seek it out. Instead it smacks you in the face. To be scared and unsure of what it holds, although you know it holds grace and mercy, hope and love, something better than your wildest dreams...

Why do we run? What benefits from ignoring things so beautiful and transparent?

I took a quiz online and these were the 'spots' that were chosen for me in this order:

1. Denver, CO
2. Seattle, WA
5. Fort Collins, CO
9. Boulder, CO
12. Knoxville, TN

Those are the ones that I have considered before taking the quiz. There were a lot of CO, WA, and AZ suggestions... Nothing that was east, except TN and OH was mentioned...

Good thing I'm moving to #2...CO and AZ wouldn't fall far behind though
