Good morning my friends! What a whirlwind of a couple weeks I have had. I recently moved out of my house that I was living in (such a blessing) to now be one step closer to the big apple. It seems like I have been dreaming for months now (since October-ish) that I was going to be living in New York City at some point this next year- I just wasn’t sure exactly when. Knowing you want to do something and then actually going through with it are two different scenarios. Knowing myself, lets just say I am a bit of a routine person. I like knowing my day, my workout, my job, and my basic agenda for the week. This doesn’t mean I don’t like being spontaneous because by all means I love adventure- but when the thought of actually picking up, leaving your “things” and moving across the country becomes reality it can be a little intimidating. Heck who am I kidding?? Extremely intimidating. It’s a little bittersweet when I think of leaving San Jose. I have worked at the same restaurant for four years now. Hard to believe, these people are like my family. I have so many regulars who are now friends and have been nothing but encouraging when it comes to the big move. Seeing the support from people who know me only from a server/customer perspective provides light at the end of the tunnel. My friends have also been super supportive reminding me that if it doesn’t workout I can always come back home. Everything always works out the way it’s supposed to, right? Most of the time if it’s not what we expect it is usually for the better. We meet the right people when the timing is right, and learn the lesson sometimes when the timing is wrong. I guess what I am getting at is that these next 2 months will be the most exciting as far as anticipation for the move. You’re never one hundred percent ready for anything- but that is the best part. Time to convince myself it will all be ok. I need let go of having control and see where life takes me! Life is all good my friends. Hope you are having a great week. =)
It’s Friday! I am on the move this weekend. Aside from the physical moving part (I don’t think I am the only one who dreads this) I am beyond excited for a new chapter and place to call home. It’s always bittersweet leaving a great situation, but knowing that in order to grow you have to move forward and change things up a bit. I have been blessed for the last year to live with my family and spend some quality time day in and out – this almost makes me shed a tear while writing! My nieces have become my little sisters and my own sister has become a stronger best friend than ever before. It has been a great last year. As for the move- I am in love with all things grey…duvet, carpet, paint etc. I have been searching around for cute goodies for the house….West Elm seems to be the winner for color scheme as well as affordable and cutest home goods. Once all is said and done, I can’t wait to get to decorating as well as creating a vision board for the next 6 months worth of goals. Nothing beats checking things off the list!
What’s on your vision board??
