I moved from Jackson July 5, 2013. I've changed so much these past two years. It was a crazy long drive. I know I made the right decision. Lost friends and gained new ones. Had two loved ones to make their transition and other family to cut me off altogether. It hurt. Still, I have a better understanding of womanhood now. I let go of 17 Mississippi pounds last year. Hoping to shed another 30lbs in 2015. Mentally, I've noticed a shift in my thinking. I'm more determined. I address my issues. I'm not hesitant to financially invest in my well being or my goals. I rep hard for Jackson because it shaped me and provided my foundation. No longer can I call it home though. I don't think any physical location could ever hold me. I'm working on accepting my home within myself. Aside from Spirit, I'm the only one that's ever been able to love me in the way I need to be loved. I'm learning to be ok with that.
