I fell in love with New York City when I was 7.
This week I came to realize the tiny vision that that 7 year old had.
Finally, my things are slowly getting unpacked and Im here.
Ive let a lot hold me back from getting to this point: relationships, fear, money, people telling me it was a bad idea...
But mostly, it was me.
Now, I embrace it all and dive into the great unknown.
To become the best me I know that change has to be a part of my life.
"Perfection" is an abstraction, nothing will ever be perfect or if it is it will not remain perfect forever, change will be required at some point.
Though change we challenge ourselves, fight though the dust and come out the other side better. Perfection will never be reached, thats part of the challenge. Through constant change, can I push myself to be the best person I can be.
It was funny, 2 months after making this decision this past summer I attended a conference where Elle Luna gave her pep talk on Should vs Must. Please read it if you can. It was like a well timed confirmation that I was making the right decision. I welled up with tears and became terrified but excited about this next chapter I decided to embark upon.
Today I choose to do something that I "must" do instead of listening to everyone telling me what I "should" do.
So here we go.
Thank you to everyone that has been supportive of me in this decision, especially Mom and Jay.
