I don’t often like to use this blog as a place to complain about life when things don’t go my way, but last month, with this post, I pledged I’d to go back to being more open and honest on here. Recently I am finding that being single and living alone in a big city, with a demanding job and a laundry list of responsibilities, ain’t always a cakewalk. The days where I wake up less than inspired and confused about the path I am on have become more frequent…which at times makes finding the motivation to take on new challenges a hard and scary thing. Do you guys ever feel that way??
I am still madly in love with Manhattan, and realize how fortunate I am to be living here. Hard as it may be at times, not a day goes by where I don’t have one of those surreal “aha” moments as I take in the incredible city that surrounds me. But I have undoubtedly entered into a new chapter – just shy of a year here, and I’m starting to think that maybe the honeymoon phase is coming to a close. This love affair is far from over, but perhaps it’ll just be less of a fairytale than I’d initially expected. It might not be sunshine and rainbows all the time, but the ups and downs are what keep life interesting. I am learning that even a bad day has its good moments…sometimes you just need to look a little harder for them.
