If things go right, we're meant to be

I have felt like a very lucky person for all of my life. I recognize that the progression of events in my life - things I've achieved, been given, and also that just been lucky enough to be in the right place - is probably more than luck, but I guess it's the word I easily chalk it up to. Moving to Florida felt truly lucky though - like the perfect storm of events came around. I had been feeling both like I needed to get out of Pennsylvania and make a serious change in my career, so I started working on updating my portfolio and resume. I can recall being at lunch with my friend Shauna the day after I launched a new design portfolio. She commented on how nice the new site looked, and I told her I was going to go ahead apply to some jobs in Florida that evening. Because why not?! And I did. And I got one of the two jobs I applied for that night. And it was the one I wanted. And it is still unbelievable to me it just worked out so easily. It was all the odds stacking in my favor. I think it's evident in my photos, my attitude, and my outlook lately that this has been one of the most positive, luckiest moments in my life. I really never thought I would feel this way about Florida, but I really, really love this place.
