Let’s be adventurers!

I love this quote so much because you can find adventure from anywhere if you’re open to it. Right now, I am on this amazing adventure called life. It’s not the easiest to move from an established community (aka home) to a state where you barely know anyone. I needed to build a new circle, meet new people. All I can say is that thank god I’m an extrovert {introvert}!

7 months later, I am feeling home in my new state of North Carolina. I have my routine, new friends, new hangouts. I’ve been lucky that my new city has felt welcoming. Here’s some lessons I’ve learned the past several months:

  • Faceboook Events – Thanks the heavens for social media. I checked out facebook events every weekend when we first moved here (and I still do!) and that’s how I was able to find out about what was happening in my new city. It’s where I first found out about Alisha’s Wise Women Wednesday events! I went to her first one a couple of months ago, didn’t know anyone, left feeling grateful that I went as that’s where I met some new friends! I also met local female entrepreneurs who are just super inspiring to be around!
  • Explore Explore Explore! – I feel lucky that we found an apartment in downtown Greensboro (even if it’s really only one long street ha) so I am able to walk around, explore new cafes, shops, bars, etc. When we first moved here, I was able to just walk around to explore our new surroundings. Found out where the local co-op was, the library, the parks, the breweries, etc.
  • Workout! – I needed to find a new fitness routine/community stat. I was pretty involved with my gym back in MN and missed being part of a community like that. So I tried a couple crossfit gyms and several yoga studios. I ended up joining the local YMCA because a) CHEAP b) got me back into running c) it’s literally a 5-10 min walk from our apartment and then joined Radiance Yoga for my namaste fix. If  ou’re ever in Greensboro, you MUST check this yoga studio out! I love love love love the instructors there!

Moving to a new city where you don’t know anyone is never easy but I chose to look at it as a positive thing. I looked at it as a new adventure with my life partner aka husband and we get to experience it together!

What about you? Have you ever had to move to a new city? What was your experience like and do you have any lessons you want to share?

Until next time!
