Hello, my name is Rachelle and I am one of the sisters on this blog. I will be doing a post once a week (primarily on Tuesdays) and my sister will be doing a post once a week (primarily on Friday's). We are very excited to write about our lives!! Please feel free to comment on our posts and/or contact us when you would like!
Here is my first post:
In about a month, I will be moving to a state I never thought I would live in - Montana. Let me give you a little bit of background on the people that I have met from Montana. Most people live a country life and literally do everything on their own. They know how to fix their own cars, can food, cook all of their meals, garden, hunt, fish, fix anything around the house, etc. These are basically things that I have never been taught to do and/or never ventured out to do on my own. I didn’t have to. I’ve lived in the city having everything at my disposal my whole life. It feels crazy thinking that I can’t rely on what I have known my whole life anymore. I am going to be in a new culture, with new people, living a life I don’t know how to live and it frightens me. Doesn’t that sound scary?! Especially when you’re a city person? I am used to choosing which movie theater I can attend, what mall I can shop at, the concert I would like to attend, who I can hang out with, etc. Change is scary, and it feels like I’m leaving my whole life behind to embark on something intimidating, where I have no clue what’s going to happen. You might be wondering why I would be willing to change my whole life style when I have a very comfortable life, with a good job, living near my family and friends. As I’m sure, most of you have assumed that I am moving to Montana for a man I love. That is correct. It may seem cliché or typical, but this is not typical for me. I am a very independent, skeptical, outspoken woman who loves people and fully invests all that I can into life. Because of the way I am, the decision making process was not easy. I have made this decision based on factors that have elated many positive feelings. So, how am I mentally preparing for the change of a lifetime? Someone once told me that “life is all about what you put into it.” In reaching into the unknown, I will be starting a brand new life where I have multiple possibilities of how I can choose to live. I have the potential to create a very happy life for myself if I am mentally prepared and willing to do so. So why not? I am going to embrace this change with arms wide open, knowing that it’s not going to be easy. It’s going to be challenging, weird, different, crazy, and fun. Life is all about what you put into it, and my attitude towards it will make all of the difference. So bring it on Montana. Here I come.
