Detour No More

de⋅tour

[dee-toor, di-toor]
--noun
1. a roundabout or circuitous way or course, esp. one used temporarily when the main route is closed.
2. an indirect or roundabout procedure, path, etc.



I'm going home. I wouldn't give up my New York experience for anything, but it was just a detour, a necessary detour. I needed to get away and pursue what I thought it was I wanted to do. And now I'll never have to regret and wonder what could've been. I did it, I lived here, I pursued my dreams, and in the process got different dreams. This is a choice I feel really good about and I'm excited to get back on the right road.

I'm leaving next week. I'm renting a truck (again) and am trying to work out a plan where I take some people's things to Denver in exchange for gas and the cost of the truck. I plan on taking an out-of-the-way path so I can see some states I haven't been to yet. But I will be passing through Kansas and Colorado, and I do plan on stopping to visit friends and family!

I realize this might be a shock to some of you, just as my news that I was moving to New York was a shock. I tend to keep my feelings and plans to myself until I've made a firm decision. And I didn't fully decide this til Monday.

I'll definitely miss the city and all that it is. It was exactly what I needed at the time, but now it's time for me to move on.
