I've always had this dream that has lurked inside of me. It is something that has haunted me with many different thoughts and feelings. I've been nervous, scared, and excited every time I've thought about it. This dream has kept me awake in the middle of the night. It has possessed the very dreams that have floated around my subconscious. This dream is life-altering. In order to accomplish/fulfill this dream I must venture into hidden places. I must walk down paths that I've never found myself down. I must venture into the dark.
We're moving to Texas to finally live my biggest dream. It's not something that Melissa and I have taken lightly. This decision came from many nights on our knees and a lot of time thinking. We know that this is where our little family needs to go. This is where we will thrive. We don't go on a simple whim. If I thought for a minute that moving to Texas would harm my family in anyway, we wouldn't be going. The accomplishment of this dream will mean more security for my family in the long run.
I don't want you to think though, that I'm giving up on school. Melissa and I have talked a lot about this. We both know that I have a desire to learn. It's in my blood for some reason to be constantly learning. We also discussed that if we don't go now I'll never accomplish my dreams. I'll be down the road always looking back at what I didn't do.
