You're Gonna Miss This...

Last week, as I coached my last ever lessons at our beautiful facility, my boss walked out and said exactly that to me.  

What he said definitely got me thinking about this song:

I feel like I've always struggled with being content where I am.  I've always felt like I'm waiting for something:  to finish college, to start a big-girl job, to get engaged, to start the next "season" of my Connecticut job, to go on a vacation, to get married, to move out of Connecticut.  I just hope [and need to tell myself] to enjoy single moment of South Carolina and be happy because this is exactly what I want.  In 3 months, I'll be married to the love of my life, have a job running my own chapter, and be living in one of my favorite places on Earth.  Now, don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved my Connecticut job.  I've written about it... a lot, a lot a lot, oh and a lot, and did I mention a lot?  So yes, my boss was right, I really am going to miss it here: my coworkers, the beautiful golf course where I get to teach, and especially, my kids.  Just look at these faces...

They're amazing and I love them all, but they will be in good hands and I cannot wait to meet even more families down in Charleston.  T-minus 12 days!

I definitely thought of that song as soon as I read your title too :) I think most people, myself included, definitely are constantly looking forward to the next event or next life change- sometimes you just have to stop and appreciate everything that is a moment!

Finding contentment has just been the story of my life this year!! You will definitely be missed - heck, I met you for .5 seconds and miss you every single day! lol Can't wait to see what you do in South Carolina though! It's going to be great! And by the way... we're doing bi-annual meet-ups in Atlanta. lol

I completely get what you're saying about needing the next thing to happen..I feel like I've done the same. I'm sure your lift in SC is going to be amazing, and I can't wait to see where the journey takes you!

Moving south is such a big change! I hear Charleston is one of the best cities though…plus you can explore a whole new part of the country.
