I came to NY because when I was 16, I knew this city had something big in store for me.
I didn't know what it was (at the time -Broadway) but deep in my gut I felt it.
Growing older, those dreams may have changed but today I realized, what I came here for may hold true after all.
A month ago I had my heart set on moving to California at the end of the Summer. I graduated and within 48 hours landed a job. While some may say- wow that's great! and yes I absolutely agree, my longing for Cali stayed. At the time I'd gotten my fill of NY and thought this education was the big thing. My heart was also not broken but banged up a bit and I truly craved a fresh start somewhere.
But today on my run, I realized this job IS the big thing. It IS the ultimate challenge that will lead to an amazing future. It is almost everything I've ever asked for and more and my God I'm So so so incredibly grateful for this opportunity.
Winter, we'll have to make a compromise.
