Starting over Again in Life

Starting over is never easy, but there are things that make it a little less hard than it would have been otherwise. Looking at apartments in Marietta Georgia was one of those things for me. Actually, finding a great apartment at the Ashford Retreat is what made my move go a lot easier. If I was just moving because of a job, it would have different. This was a move to start over though, because I was a newly divorced woman. The only saving grace is that I only needed to look for a one bedroom apartment since we did not have kids.

I know that there are a lot of people who are excited to be single again, but I am not one of them. I accepted that I needed to move on, but it was still scary. Finding an apartment so close to where my parents live was a huge help. I did not want to live with them, but I did want them close by. My dad is actually the one who found this apartment complex for me and sent me the information. He knew I wanted space, and he thought that I would get just that here.

He was right too. I fell in love with the pictures of the apartment as soon as I started looking over them on the complex’s website. My favorite thing outside is the lake with the walking trails around it. I knew that I would spend a lot of time on them. My favorite thing about the inside is my balcony. I have the most incredible view, and I love sitting out there. I will read books, listen to music, enjoy a cup of coffee or just pray, and I have found that I get so much peace right there. I am really starting to appreciate this fresh start.
