Moving to LA

Sitting at a coffee shop down the road from my new apartment, and I can’t help but think how long I wanted this feeling. It’s unexplainable really. But, all I can say is I feel I am exactly where I am supposed to be. After a three day road trip with my best friend Carsen, I got to LA on September 3.

It’s always scary, leaving a place you called home for most of your life. Saying good bye to a great job, friends , and my family. If you know me, you know I’ve been wanting to move for years. I was at place in my life where I was really comfortable. Life was beautiful, but I knew I had to take a risk and move from my hometown in order to grow. I just wasn’t sure where. After living in Australia for a short term, I wanted to live there. But COVID changed those plans.

I prayed to God on where I should go. I knew I was ready, I just didn’t know where. Then all at once, God started to open some doors for me. I visited California a few times prior to moving there and fell in love with the people. Made some good friends. People who I could truly be myself around. People who didn’t make me feel like I wasn’t enough or too much. The friends I made, encouraged me to come. So.. I finally came.

I remember sitting in my living room in FL with my friend Laura. We just finished playing a few rounds of the were not really strangers game. She could feel how ready I was and she said, “Kat, God calls us to be a woman of action.” For some reason, these words hit me hard. She not only encouraged me to get going, but she instantly hopped online with me as I looked for a new job. These are the friends we all need. In that moment, I decided I was moving to California.

It was that easy, it just took a push or two or three… from some friends and family supporting me to go. On my road trip, there were so many signs I received from God that I made the right decision. It’s been almost two months of living here and all I can say is He provides. If you have desires in your heart, remember God created you and put those desires in your heart for a reason. I’m glad I finally became a woman of action and made one of the riskiest decisions of my life. I’m still adjusting, but I am loving every moment.
