People have told me that I'm "too big for Alabama". Its always been very sincere and a way of saying.... you belong in California or New York or maybe a more progressive area like the area I'm originally from in the Northeast. I use to think.... yea i should move!
I don't think that anymore. I think that small towns in general, all across the US are charming but often difficult to navigate for an outsider. People are afraid of change. The best way to break through, is to stay and be the change! I voted for Doug Jones and helped Alabama change. We volunteer. We love big. We live loud and unapologetically. We push boundaries. I write. I grow. I raise little humans who will change the world. I don't care what other people think.... there is so much freedom in that! My tribe is diverse and amazing. I surround myself with love. I think youre amazing Alabama, and like me.... still growing everyday ❤
