It is true what they say, there most certainly is a time in everyone’s life in which one must grow up, move on…and let go. For me, that day is today. I am 21 years old, with ambitions, dreams & goals beyond the heavens and have found that restricting myself within my shell, my home…my haven will never get me to where I want to be. I’ve put it off long enough and have come to realization that I could never become who I wish to be if I were to stay in my hometown; As much as I wish I could stay with my family, I know they understand that I can not blossom to my fullest potential here.
I am excited, nervous and overall, ready for what the future may hold from here on out. My move to NYC has been a uphill battle these past three years trying to decide if it is really what I believe is best for me. I have experienced such beauty and LIFE in the city, and my only hope is that my move will bring many more sights, people and opportunities such as those I have already come across.
As I sit here at the airport, I feel as if I am beginning a new life…a new chapter, in which I have already written in my mind and am finally being able to type up, show to you…and live.
About to board - holding my breath, I tell myself… the time has come.
