Living In Iowa

Moved to Des Moines about 6 months ago. It has it's good points and it's bad points. Sometimes I wonder if I should head back to Minnesota, I have no real ties here and it is strange to be so far away from everyone I have known.

I always seem to change my mind and stay. The good parts are really hard to walk away from. I am so much freer to be myself here. Back home I had to hide a huge part of myself from everyone around me, as much as I miss home, I am not sure I could ever live that way again.

Of course I am dying to at least head home for a visit! Dsm has been good to me in many ways, like losing weight, gaining self confidence, and actually dressing like I'm not a tomboy lol. Guess I have grown up more here in the last 6 months than I had in all my 37 years.

You will continue to blossom if you keep up that positive attitude.

Tikamae, moving is difficult, leaving all the comforts of home, family, & friends but as you've experienced, it opens new doors for personal growth. Enjoy your new found inner strength and focus, revel in what you are accomplishing.

These are very attractive qualities in a lady, and I am sure you will garner the benefits in your relationships in Des Moines and your visits to Minnesota will be that much more rewarding for you.

Congratulations to you, hold your head high and allow others to recognize the wonder of you!!

Thank you so much for the comments! At the time I wrote the original post I was unsure of what direction to go, now i realize I am on the right path, & if I continue to follow my heart and do the things I need to do for me, life will continue to get better!
