So many random things just took place in my life for the last three years. And these random things are probably the highlights of my years.
I look back and it was indeed a hell of a ride! All i know was I enjoyed every moment. I endured every pain. I did not leave any stones unturned. I had a wonderful life in Sint Maarten, Caribbean (Gosh! I miss the island so bad!) for almost couple of years. I experienced a monstrous hurricane and thought I would be dead during its passing. We were able to survive. I endured weeks of not having a decent bath! Yeah you can laugh at me ? ? But good things sometimes need to end.
Leaving SXM was freaking hard for me. I had a wonderful life there. It is #livingthelife. I had amazing friends from different countries. I had nice experience. I learned so much. I was safe there. It was my comfort zone. I had a nice company. I am pretty sure someone would exchange for my slot just to be in the caribbean. It was pretty tough decision. Something in my inner mind just tells me to grab it. My closest friends just advised me to leave the island for a while and pursue for something greater. I cried (drama!) and left the island but made a promise to go back and even considering to retire there.
Anyway, here I am actually a month old working and living in the city in what they refer to as “THE BIG APPLE” ?. Yes! If you can make it here, you can make it everywhere that’s what they say. (Alicia Keys.. move over!) NEW YORK! ? ?
One month is too soon to summarise NYC. But base on what I had so far, she is crazy amazing! It feels like I am in a youth camp where everyday there are a lot of activities that are just tempting for me to go and participate. It is a never ending possibilities on ways to enjoy and see its beauty.
In the street you hear a lot of different languages! You see different kind of faces in subway. You see different ways on how they run to catch up their morning schedules. Everyone in the city just minding their own business and maybe that is their way of celebrating being in the concrete jungle.
The food are amazing, the Halal of food truck in 3rd avenue was super nice. Deli burgers are delicious too. There are a lot of choices. Name it, they have it! Crazy right?
Most of all are the places to visit. The parks are beautiful and you can tell that they are really being taken care of. It feels weird when you actually see the places you just saw in movies before. Different places have a special history and it just makes it more beautiful and amazing!
New York takes the cake! But it is pretty expensive! So I have to be wise everyday! But there are a lot of freebies as well. So I enjoy the city in the most economical possible way.
I will be digressing okay. But I guess what I want you to realize is that, it is never too late to dream and never too late to work for it. Never stop dreaming. When opportunity comes just grab it. It will be really hard but it will be worth it in the end. Sometimes we need to make tough decisions and get out of our safe circles but that is just how life is. It is made up of decisions no matter how big and small they are. We are a product of our decision and what we basically put in our mind and believe.
