So, I moved to LA. Yep, as in Los Angeles.
I only moved 3 weeks ago but I am so so proud of the progress that I’ve made so far. I’ve wanted to live in California for over 8 years so to actually be here is an accomplishment in itself. However, lately, that accomplishment hasn’t felt like enough.
Coming from Howard University (HU!), I’m surrounded by people who work at Google, make 50,000+ a year, and just seem to have it all together. Although I love being surrounded by greatness, it gets hard sometimes to not compare my journey to my neighbor’s. Especially when someone tells me they have a loft in downtown LA and meanwhile I’m sleeping on my friend’s couch. 😂 In the beginning I was embarrassed to admit that, but then I remembered that it’s a part of my journey, not my destination and that this was the path that I chose to take.
I’ve always been a dreamer, but this move to LA was the start of my journey as a doer and I smile because I know that all of this is going to make an amazing book one day.
Seriously though, what if before every decision in life we decided to ask ourselves “what would make my autobiography better?”
Lol but my point is I bit the bullet. I’m doing something that even I thought was absolutely crazy but I’m doing it!
This post is a short one today but I wanted to write this to all my 20 somethings who feel like their story isn’t good enough. Who feel like they don’t know where else to go and are just hopeless. I was there, I’m still there and I don’t have all the answers. However, I will say that I’ve learned that when you decided to do something crazy and put all of your energy into it, the universe has a funny way of making it happen. You have total control over your life so get in tune with yourself and figure out what YOU really want and do it! I’ll be doing the same. 😊
Love you guys to the moon & back,
