Adventures in Leahland

I wanted an adventure.  

 

I was bored.  

 

Don’t get me wrong.  I loved my gym, I loved the people in my gym, I loved lifting weights, but I was bored with the sameness of it.  Wake up every morning at 4am, that got really fucking old, go to the gym until around lunchtime then go home.  Every, single, day, for years.  Except Sunday.  I did’t go to the gym on Sundays.  It was a rule.  

 

So I changed it.  

 

I changed everything.  

 

I sold my gym.  I moved to Florida.  Jason got a job in Louisiana.  Now we have a house in Florida and an apartment in New Orleans.  I have no job, no friends, I’m alone the majority of the time with no purpose.  I was getting depressed.  All my life I wanted to be needed.  I needed to be needed.  That was my purpose.  To help people, this in turned helped me feed my ego.  People needed me and it felt good.  But I was bored.  I’m a wanderer at heart.  I like to explore, to see new things, to experience life.  


I wanted an adventure.  


I woke up this morning and my perspective was different.  I’m no longer sad, I’m open.  Open to the possibilities of what my life now is.  It is open.  I have no obligations except to Sophie.  I can go anywhere, do anything, find my adventure. 


I still have no idea what my life has in store for me.  I guess I never really have.  That whimsical girl who follows her heart and not necessarily her head is still me.  Armed with my camera maybe the images I capture will become my adventure unfolding before me.

Artist, dreamer, lover of life. Former gym owner redefining me.
