Life is Not Easy

I absolutely love this quote and feel that it applies to my life at this very moment.
Most importantly life is not easy, everything happens for a reason, but life is worth it.


Just a couple of days ago, my husband and I were talking about how moving to Florida was meant to be. Even though we sometimes struggle with not knowing many people down here, we know that all good things take time. We're exactly where we're supposed to be, and things will work out for us even if we cannot see it at the moment.


Keep your past in the rearview mirror,
check it once in a while to remember where you've been,
and then keep driving forward.

Growing up we believe in fairy tales, magic, and happy endings. Over the years, pain and struggle make us less likely to keep that childhood innocence, but it doesn't mean we should give up on our dreams or stop trying to fully live life. That's what this life is all about after all.... living. Really living. Like the quote above reads, "Nobody said that it'd be easy, they just promised it would be worth it." Take chances, and let them change your life. It will be worth it. Believe it.

  7. Love this. When I met my husband in Brazil, my friends told me: "you should stop thinking about him, he's back in California and you're here! It'll never work out!" I'm glad I took a chance and believed in my heart! It hasn't been easy living in a different country, but so worth it!

    As long as you're happy with your choice of moving to Florida, then everything will be alright! ;)
