April 6, 2016
The main reason that I went back to Vegas 6 months after I moved is that I had a Southwest voucher that was going to expire in July AND I needed to be sure that I made the right decision in moving . . . and I did.
This trip was simply validating my decision to leave.
When I had Vegas in my head, to live there when I was living in Orlando, the plan was to move to Vegas for 4 to 5 years and build my resume and come back to Orlando or wherever my career brings me.
I made some lifelong friendships.
Held 3 different job titles in two casinos.
Traveled a heck of a lot (as usual).
Grew closer to God at Verve Church.
Simply made unforgettable memories.
Vegas is a second home for me since I went out there alone and established myself with no family and just a friend or two initially. It's definitely an emotional place.
I'm sad typing this right now just because I know that emotional feeling with gradually go away once I've been gone long enough. It's inevitable.
Time has a way of doing that.
I love you, Vegas, for the great experiences and thank you for letting me see that God lives everywhere. He is with us EVERYWHERE we go.
Live. Life. Out. Loud.
