Saying goodbye to my island home

A few months ago, I came back to Hawaii seeking comfort. And a few months after that, I decided I was ready to move on with my life. The islands healed me, and I knew I was ready for new adventures and a new chapter. Saying goodbye to my island home wasn’t easy, but it was time and I’m looking forward to what my future holds for me! Here’s what my last few days looked like on Maui. Man, will I miss those waters…

Always in my heart, always my home. Hawaii I love you. Thank you for healing me. ❤

Have you ever left your home? This is my umpteenth time leaving, but it’s for good this time. I don’t plan on moving back. Visiting, definitely. Living there, never. This world is too big to stay in one place!

    You have a gorgeous home and I get homesick just looking at the pictures. And I haven’t even ever been there! I don’t know how you can leave, but I know that God has amazing things in store for you and that He used that time on your island to build you up in wonderful ways and prepare you for whatever storms are in your future. 🙂

    I felt the same way leaving Guam 15 years ago. A part of me wants to move back but the sense of adventure is what keeps me going. Good luck on the travels!
