A Project’s End

“What do we leave behind when we cross each frontier? Each moment seems split in two; melancholy for what was left behind and the excitement of entering a new land.”
– Che Guevara

Girl Gets Board, now Girl Gets SoCal, emerged out of a desire to challenge myself. Going out of my comfort zone and picking up snowboarding again, this time in the beautiful Pacific Northwest mountains. Taking another risk and moving down to SoCal after eight years in Seattle to experience what the southern part of the coast had to offer. Because of it, I met many people doing what they love, made new friends, and had unbelievable opportunities that my seventeen year-old-self would have only dreamed of.

I’m so glad I said Yes. Yes to taking on intimidating commitments. Yes to going out on a limb–beyond my comfortable box. Because of it, I’m slowly learning that risking is worth it, and the outcome exceeds most anything imaginable. The best part? Becoming friends with amazing and inspiring people. And it can all happen just with one, three letter word.

Ending this project is scary–and exciting. Because it means I am saying Yes to new adventures. A new path. I’m ready.
