Note to Self

Over the weekend I stumbled across this quote and it really sat with me. I had always wished that I lived in California. That if I had, my life would be more amazing. I would have my dream job, do all the things I ever wanted to do.  Well it's been 5 years since I've been to California and I've finally come around to open my eyes and see that I can find complete happiness here. All I need to do is let myself bloom, bloom in Texas...and if any of you have ever felt like me, there's no need to wait. You can bloom exactly where you are.

  1. Wonderful reminder for all of us. I feel the same honestly. Its like I was robbed of so many opportunities when dad moved us from California to Idaho. But who knows if I would have the same dreams if we hadn't moved? I feel like moving is what caused me to flourish in the way I have :)

  2. This is a wonderful quote doll!! I think whether you move or stay where you are, you should always bloom and make it the best you can, as you never know what you can achieve where you are before you go somewhere else!! Loved this xx

  3. This quote is just amazing and oh so true Erica. Sometimes I think that I forget just how beautiful the place that I live in itself is.

  4. This is just what I needed to read today - a simple, yet beautiful message!

  5. I absolutely love this! So inspiring :)
