Far From Home—Big Apple Baby!

During this time of year everyone takes a moment to reflect on their past and the future. By standing at life’s preverbal bridge it requires reflection on the decisions that have impacted your life. What might have or what will happen in the future is anyone guess but the excitement I find in life is that anything can happen if you take a leap of faith!
Looking back, I can’t believe it’s been ten years since I moved to New York City and it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made. It’s hard to be away from friends and family but the course life has taken since then has been such a drastic change that it’s comical to consider how my life would have been had I not gone.
Confidence is born when you have to strike out on your own, perilously walking along that tightrope, without having a safety net in case you falter while cautiously putting one foot ahead of the other, not knowing if you can make it but having the endurance to keep on going.
Adventure is the spice of life and without its addition; it can prove bland or tasteless. Why be safe or cookie cutter as you only live once so what if you get a little burnt along the way, it just adds to the flavor!
