As I write this post, I feel so happy! :)  It has been so wonderful to be back in LA and spend quality time with friends and family. It’s so hard for me to even believe that a week and a half ago, I was miserably hiding out in a hotel room to avoid being in the polluted area of Kunshan, China! Life seemed pretty bleak then…and I was fantasizing about quitting my job, selling everything, and moving to Bora Bora. Seriously. I started writing a book about it…haha I got to page 10 and realized that I needed to stop writing before I thought myself into actually doing it lol I wasn’t quite ready to make that kind of commitment haha

But here I am…back in LA…properly fed, with wonderful weather and amazing friends and family who give me a gazillian reasons to smile. I feel so fortune and so very blessed that God keeps sending friends…old and new…even from out of town!… my way :)  I feel like myself again. And it feels good!

I take it all as a lesson in change. Things change. As I love to tell friends, it is always darkest before dawn.  We have to keep the faith that dawn will come. And I advocate making big decisions in the light of day to ensure that we’re moving in the direction of our dreams…and not just running without direction from a temporarily uncomfortable situation. There is a difference….but either way, movement is good :)
