These past few weeks have been nothing but unreal and hectic. I believe the last time I did a post like this I was talking about moving back home to New York. Well, as of last week I can say that I’m officially a New Yorker again. I’m still semi-living out of suitcases but hopefully I can get that situated…eventually. For various reasons this was one of the toughest decisions I had to make. That’s the thing with decisions though, they can be tough to make but we just have to be strong enough to make them.
I will say moving back to New York has thought me an important lesson in life. That lesson is to not be afraid to change. Looking back on the past few years I’ve come to realize that I’ve became too comfortable within my life. What I mean by this is that sometimes I would be scared to step outside that comfort zone to do something new or go a different route. I know for a fact this has sabotaged several opportunities I’ve had in the past. I’m not here to talk about regrets though because I don’t focus on those things. I’m learning to look at my failures as lessons to be applied towards the next situation.
So making this move back to New York is something that completely took me out of my comfort zone. I couldn’t imagine being back here but I’m happy that I finally made this move. Yeah, I may have to start from scratch and lay my roots down again. Truth be told I have no problem with that what so ever. What time greater than now to apply those lessons I’ve learned from my failures towards my future situations. So I’m excited to see how things work out for me with this new outlook and knowledge.
I’m learning that everyday you have to potential to change something about yourself as life goes on. You just have to be ready to make those changes. For me, today in particular is a great example of how we change and grow as people as time goes on because it’s my birthday. Even though I don’t really like making a big deal about it, I look at it more so as a good time to set some goals for myself for the new age I have earned.
I don’t know what my 25th year will have in store for me. What I do know is I’m ready to stop living within the comfort zone I’ve put myself in these past few years. Therefore, here’s to new beginnings and embracing changes.
