Have you ever hit a point in your life where you wish you could start over? Try new things? Become the person you always wanted to become? To try and do the things you have always wanted to do? Well I did too.
This blog is about creating your life. It’s about creating a happy life. About being and doing everything that will make you happy…….and I mean truly happy.
Have you ever woken up one day and realized you lost yourself? Well I did. I realized that I let almost two years of drama change my life forever. But that’s the great thing about life. Your choices decide your life. And if you don’t like your life and you are not happy, than you change your choices. You can start by choosing things, and choosing to be in situations, where you do like your life, and where you are happy.
I woke up one day and realized that I had lost me. I had lost my happiness. I had allowed someone else to take it from me. I was losing my health and wasn’t feeling that well. I felt physically and emotionally drained. I felt like I wasn’t accomplishing anything. I stopped going places and associating with friends. I realized I had a closet full of numerous black leggings and black tank tops, and I wore that outfit style almost every day. When I looked in the mirror I no longer saw that bubbly confident glowing person that used to look back at me. Instead I saw someone with dark sunken-in-eyes. Someone who’s cheeks were noticeably drawn in, and worst of all, someone who looked a lot older than the girl who used to look back at me just 20-months earlier. It was at this point I knew I didn’t have any other choice. Finally, I had to change my situation to improve my physical and emotional health. It was at this point that I decided I was going to focus on living a happier, healthier, more stylish life……..
And over the next few years I did it. I started living a happier, healthier more stylish life. I created the life I wanted and took control of my future and happiness. I started going out more and socializing with friends again. I stated running again. I started eating better. I started paying attention to my appearance again, and made sure to wear clothing and outfits that made me feel beautiful. I started traveling across the United States again and writing “lists of goals.” I started accomplishing these goals. I moved out of my Manhattan apartment and started working as a travel nurse. I lived in Austin Texas and then California for a bit. I drove cross country four times, getting to experience life outside of my NYC bubble. I started traveling the world. Living and renting an apartment in Paris for three weeks by myself. Traveling across the world to Asia and seeing the Great Wall of China in person. Seeing Thailand and South Korea with friends. Then heading to Asia again, two years later, to country hop and experience more of that side of the world. Falling in love with Bali and leaving bali with a future goal of living there for a few months in the future. Going to India and seeing the Taj Mahal and all its beauty in person. Seeing how lucky I am to have been born and raised in a first world country with all the advantages it affords me. I was able to experience the joy and ease of country hopping throughout Europe via the EuroRail. I was able to do sightseeing in Puerto Rico while attending a Raw Food Institute to further my education on nutrition and holistic health. AND…… just knowing I still have so many more goals to achieve, places to travel to and experiences to have makes me happy!
