When I said I wanted to move to New York, I said it with the hope of unveiling something incredible. It is my dream to be able to express myself, create, and motivate others to see the beauty in life. No matter where I am beauty is there. Perception is the key, and changing it is the secret.
So here I am, in the city I’ve dreamed of living in. It’s been over a month since I’ve moved; two apartments, a few weeks sleeping on an air mattress, and a big adventure ahead of me. Since I was consumed by uprooting the life I’ve always known, I didn’t have a lot of opportunity to post anything.
I can tell you the process to get to this point is not what you read in stories or watch on television. The glamour is what you make of it. I was lucky enough to be in a loving relationship with a person who helped achieve this wild dream. Together we drove ourselves until no end, looking for apartments between all hours worked, and both coming down with pneumonia the first week in our new city, there was no rest, no down time. Good news is it all paid off and I am pinching myself to see what I have accomplished. I’m hopeful and excited to see where this next chapter will bring me. I miss my family and my beloved animals every day, but I must keep things moving in order to progress.
An interesting note: I bought this jacket after my birthday in July, the brand is Blank NYC. At that point in time I was wishing for a sign, something to help push me to make this move. It was too hot for a leather jacket but I scooped it up anyway. I couldn’t wait to post it on here and find the right moment to wear it. How apropos, it was perfect for the mild weather we were having.
