The Move!
Forward? Backward? Or Around In Circles?

The moment arrived to move! Only packing pieces I truly loved, and what I absolutely had to have to live, including IKEA platforms for mattresses that had those indecipherable instructions… I made my way from Los Angeles to Flathead Valley in Montana. The directions are simple! Take the 10 to the 15 to the 90 to the 93 and you are there! 4 turns! And 1400 miles…25 ½ hours of drive time. 2 trucks, 2 trailers, 2 kids, 2 grandkids, and a dog!

What was awesome is that I focused on what was ahead; what I was looking forward to. I loved the drive…albeit long…I thought the scenery was fantastic. Through the California desert, then Las Vegas and that new, very glitzy, Raider Stadium, on through a corner of Arizona and the spectacular Virgin River Gorge (be sure to watch the video).

We drove up through the beautiful red rocked earth of Southern Utah and stopped in Salt Lake City for a quick sleep. The next morning we went on through Utah, Idaho, the Rocky Mountains lining the way and ended in the Flathead Valley of Montana. 6 states later we had arrived!

What about you…on whatever road you are traveling? Are you moving forward? Are you going towards what you want? What would you really love?

Are you looking in the rearview mirror checking on what hasn’t happened or gone wrong? Are you hoping to change the past?

Or are you spinning in circles going around and around like it’s “Groundhog Day”?

Here are 3 things to help you move ahead:

  1. Get rid of the rear-view mirror! If you’ve made a mistake learn from it and move ahead!
  2. Look towards what’s ahead. What could be exciting? What is great about this next chapter and what is the adventure you are in? Remember, you are the hero of your story…write it as you wish!
  3. Enjoy the journey….notice what’s around you. Look at what is wonderful all along the way.
