Many people gave me warnings about such a big move and gave me their view on NYC life. I listen and know that it is them expressing love. They care about me, so they are sharing their experiences of NY and life with me. I gently remind them that ...
A) I am not from Southern California - I grew up in the midwest and the lived in Chicago for years.
B) I can deal with weather. I like weather.
C) I have missed living in a city since I left Chicago-cities make sense to me.
D) I have toured the world for the last 7 years and I am used to being in a new city or new country each day. I am used to immersing myself immediately.
E) I am not scared.
F) I see everything in life as an adventure
G) There is no such thing as failing
H) I am up for it all
On the phone with a friend yesterday, who just found I moved, she said, "oh wow, you moved to NY? Is that a bad thing or a good thing?" in a questioning voice.
Bad thing?????? What is that? I do not understand how it could be bad? I don't really see anything as bad. It is all life. It is all a learning experience. It all takes you to the next step. It all shapes who we are.
But, your answer, is IT IS FREAKING AMAZING THING!!!!
New York, New York I am in love with you and all that you have to offer. Thank you for offering me your giant apple to take a bite of and savor!
