Today we are chatting with my wonderful niece, Megan. Megan was an athlete and enjoyed spending time with family in her small, tight-knit hometown. Fast forward and she is 22 years old, in graduate school, and living in a new city. These great life events can be difficult, no matter what. However, Megan explains the extra challenge of going through these big transitions during the pandemic. Although the move and grad school have had their ups and downs, Megan explains how leaving her comfort zone has helped her to learn more about herself. She has been able to grow and flourish and is finding a fondness for her new life. If you are going through a big life change, I hope Megan’s story encourages you.
