Since arriving in LA four days ago I have hiked three hours through Runyon Canyon, six miles through my neighborhood to and around the Hollywood Reservoir, and just today, a two-mile trip up, up, up to the Hollywood Sign and back down again. Whew! I simply can’t get enough of the constant sunshine, perfect temperatures, and abundance of outdoor activities and sightseeing this city offers.
I’m absolutely, positively, indisputably, unequivocally in LOVE with LA! I feel like my whole life has been leading up to this point. I feel like I’ve arrived home for the first time ever and that’s huge for me: I hardly ever feel a sense of home in my gypsy soul. I believe from the moment I made the tough decision to walk away from a life that was no longer serving me and begin to look deep inside my heart, I have evolved into the woman I am today: a woman unafraid; happy; blissful; grateful, a woman ready to go after her dreams, a woman in love with life! I wake up every morning with a bounce in my step, not tears in my eyes! What a transition I have made over the past eight months. Even I am amazed what all is possible if one truly follows one’s heart: you feel unstoppable. And you feel rewarded. God wants us to be happy, to follow our bliss, and the reward for doing so must be how I’m feeling right now.
