Another Adventure Begins Tomorrow
Hey family and friends. Just wanted to give you all a quick update. I am leaving the resort tomorrow morning and heading to Utah to go to the resort there for a week. I am getting really nervous and kind of freaking out. BLR@FR-Malibu has been my home for 23 weeks. I can't believe my time here has ended for now. I will be back at some point because I have 3 weeks that I have banked that I need to use at some point. Its funny because I was talking to a friend here just this morning and she asked me if I was feeling melancholy. That's a great word for how I'm feeling. On one hand I am excited to go home and see my family and friends and animals, and to try to implement all that I have learned here, but on the other hand, I am terrified to go home. This has become like a second home to me. All the staff and all the guests that I have met and gotten to know are like family to me. They have seen my good side and my bad side and still accept and love me for who I am. They have encouraged me, pushed me, supported me, and given me hugs when I needed a hug. I know that I must move on and learn to do this on my own, but I don't do change very well, and I am allowing fear to control how I feel. I check out tomorrow which means that I weigh in and get measured. I will post again when I get to Utah to let you know how I did last week.
