- Beach Home Rentals
After coming to the beach almost a month ago I was worried that I would have trouble adjusting, making friends, learning a new city. It's strange how we fear the unknown until we venture in to it. Once we do that it seems the things that were once scary, aren't as scary as they seem. Sometimes we have to be brave enough to make the unkown known.
My first day here I was so scared, I started questioning my decision. I kept thinking, I just want a hug! I went back to an empty apartment and cried. I felt so alone. I went out to the store to get some thing to eat and the older gentleman checking me out was so kind. He asked me how I was doing, the worst possible question to ask someone that's on the brink of tears. I told him I was fine, just moved to the area and knew no one, he looked at me and smiled " Oh well, you'll be ok." He said gently. Just the words I needed to hear. He told me to take care of myself, be smart, and if I needed anything he was always around.
I walked out with my groceries and a new perspective. I put a smile on my face and decided to claim my new life as my own.
The very next day I gave my number to a Virginia Beach local, hoping he would call me, he did, and he's started to show me all the hidden and popular local hotspots. Hes been pushing this beauty out of her comfort zone and onto the beach.
I've found the locals here to be pretty awesome. I put myself out there and I've made friends, connections, and memories. Slowly but surely, the regrets of moving, the broken promises of the past, were being washed away by the ocean tides, and new hopes and dreams are budding with spring rains.
Looking forward to the future!!!
