Well, I guess this is my first step. Putting into words and idea that is in my head. I have spent my entire adult, and some childhood, in the same area. I have had a safety zone, and have been comfortable and unchallenged. For a long time I have had an urge, a desire, to just go. To go and start new, start fresh, without a safety net of support. To find a place where I can be who I really am, who I really want to be, not the person that I am perceived to be or who I am “supposed” to be.
I have always had a reason to stay. I have a job/career, I have financial obligations, I have family obligations, I am just too old to do something like that.
Well, this past year or so, a lot has changed. Those excuses don’t seem so important any longer. My cubicle walls feel more confining than they ever have before. I have for once in my life accepted myself for who I am, and what I want…need. I lost my beloved Mother without having the chance to say goodbye, my biggest obligation is now gone. So much has changed, yet so little has.
So, here today, I take my first step not knowing what my next step will or is to be, but I start none the less. Let’s hope that this will be a journey worth taking, no less than at least attempting. 4 weeks ago

I plan to take my life savings, my vehicle and a optimistic attitude that I have never channeled before to create a new life in Ohio. I plan to buy a live in fixer upper home and invest blood sweat and tears into it. I just want a simple, quiet, low key lifestyle and northeast ohio has been calling my name for years. 10 months ago
I would have stayed in Alex City, but i lost family support, so i ended up broke and alone. I was happier there than i am here right now in Michigan. I would leave Michigan again. 10 months ago
I had such great expectations for how my life would be at 30, but so far, all that has ben thrown away. I an so afraid that me wanting to start over is tanamount to me just running away. I really feel though, that it’s the only option anymore. So here is my plea… I am trying to find someone who wants to completely reinvent their life. Pair up, move to a small, out of the way town, and just make a brand new life… 10 months ago
I have a stirring in my soul to leave and wander about partly aimlessly just living life one day at a time. 19 months ago
Hope to do this within the next 2 years!!!! I don’t understand how people can stand to stay in one place their whole life being boring and unadventurous and content. 2 years ago

I’m a single mother who is finally getting over illness and trying to get back on my feet. I have a jackaex who doesn’t pay child support, but signed a legal document stating I can move to wherever the heck I want I just need to give him notice. I live in Katy, Tx..a quaint small town, and I love small towns..but I long for seasons that change..I miss the smell of snow, and want my kids to have that experience. I’m living with my parents. I’ve burned a lot of bridges from my old life because I was tired of being treated badly. I let friends walk all over me. I want to move to a place with a mountain view..Montana or Alaska. I’d even settle for moving to Virginia where my childhood love and now best friend lives, but we both want something more..I like cold, he likes warm but we agreed to meet in the middle..and raise our kids. Even if it doesn’t happen with him…I need to get out of here. I have got to get away, force myself to get out of this rut, out of Texas. I have never liked the weather here..and while I appreciate the sky in the country at night, I want a cooler climate. I want far and away.
How do I do it? Does anyone ever hire a woman with two kids ..or are there places available in a small town for room and board and a job where I can walk myself and kids everywhere. I need to do this. I don’t know how..any pointers. Oh..and jacka ex ruined my car so no car either.. 2 years ago
