I dreamt of living in New York City my entire life. Fantasizing about the city that never sleeps from the architecture to the theatrical presence and unparalleled sophistication. Most visits I would clock 30,000 steps on my Apple Watch! You better wear your walking shoes, because the sights are endless!
It wasn’t until two years ago that I actually made my dream a reality. After 14 years in Los Angeles, I took the plunge to move out East. However the love affair of visiting versus the awakening of day to day routine was so extremely different that I almost gave up and left! Not to mention my first big winter and feeling the midst of seasonal depression. I don’t care what anyone says, sunshine on your face DOES make you happy. Hello Vitamin D, people. 🙂
But I didn’t give up and decided to stay and take advantage of what the city had to offer. I went from a serial dater to a loving relationship. I found my rhythm and balance with being healthy and social. Oh and I decided to turn my passions into my career!
I lost all the fear I had when in Lala Land and went all in! So I must say I have so much gratitude to The Big Apple. It’s very true- “Concrete jungle where dreams are made of.” Come see for yourself!
