For a long time I felt like my life was on hold. Moving to New York was my big chance to focus only on me. For one year, I was going to put myself above everyone else. I gave myself permission to spend a boatload of cash and experience things I’d always wanted to experience and try things as opportunities presented themselves.
Here are some photos from my year. The music is Beyonce’s “I Was Here,” a song my friend Riki sent me. It’s a good reminder for all of us to go out there and do everything we’ve wanted to. And I have. It’s been so much more than I thought it would be.
I’m a journalist, content strategist, doting auntie, amateur bobsledder, fitness enthusiast, and wannabe health nut (who loves chocolate and pizza too much to fully commit). I don't want you to think my life is perfect. It's not.
