It's been a minute since I've written on here and honestly it doesn't feel good. A lot has happen since my last post (not that that is an excuse) but to be completely transparent, I was in an uninspired state to write and so I just didn't. BUT a lot of things have happened since, so let me give you a quick spark notes version.
I moved to Los Angeles about 5 months ago. Packed up my entire 27 years of life into 3 suitcases, 10 boxes and 2 backpacks and settled in the Valley. A lot of people have asked me why. Why did I choose to move, why LA, why now? The answer isn't some extravagant explanation, it simply is because I felt that something was missing. Growing up and living in New York with my family and best friends seems like an absolute dream. I mean, I never not had someone to go to dinner with or grab coffee with and always had a non-stop social life but that only fulfilled me so much. I had this voice inside my head that kept telling me there is more to life out there and there are challenges and adventures to be experienced. This empty feeling that started as an after thought every couple of weeks turned into something that I thought about at least once a week and then eventually everyday and thats when I knew I had to make a change.
This was my first time really starting in a new city, I honestly did not know what to expect. I was super eager to start my new job, have a new roommate, date new guys and just see what all the hype was about. Now, I could get into the details of all of the above but to be honest that's probably not super interesting. What I can tell you is, it's been 7 months and man have I learned a WHOLE lot about myself.
I think the biggest takeaway thus far is learning what I want and what I need. Being a twenty-seven year old woman living in LA, it is safe to say that there are a TON of opportunities that hit you left and right and to be honest it's overwhelming. I learned what kind of people I want to surround myself with and what type of things i want to be exerting my energy towards. I've come across situations where I had to put my fears aside in order to stick up for what I believe in and finally learned to prioritize the important things in my life.
With the month of December starting today, it hit me that there is only 30 days left of 2019! So in honor of that, this is your reminder to make everyday this month count- do the things you want to do, spend time with the people you care about and put yourself first.
