The move heard 'round the world
Before I moved to New York I really felt pretty badly about myself. I felt that I was a failure on every spectrum and really didnt deserve much from life. As you can imagine that isnt the most positive way to approach life. After moving to New York and taking my current job, things started to look up.
I found that I was pretty good at the job I had taken. I didn't expect to be but apparently you just have to be a hard worker and enjoy chaos. Hard working came natural since it was in my blood and the chaos part I rocked in from years of practice. Eventually I worked my way up the ladder and my attitude began to change.
Moving to New York and surviving was a huge acomplishment. I had my doubts when moving but it was something that i HAD to do. I had always wanted to live in NYC and I knew I would regret not going. Amazingly enough, I made it... we made it.
Jonah. Im going to admit that at first this was tough. I was coming from being single for 6 years. I had never lived with a boyfriend before. I never had to share EVERYTHING. I enjoyed keeping to myself. I enjoyed making decisions on my own without consulting with anyone and if it was a bad one...who cares! It was just me.
The first few months were trying. I wasnt sure what was going on. I knew I loved him but didnt know how we would make it work. But eventually it just did. I made a decision to make it work. It was a light switch. As soon as I made the decision everything was better. Honestly, it was pretty instant.
We made it. We were a part of it, a big part!
We did so well that now we're moving to Washington, DC. As far as work goes, I was promoted again. Now I get to be the Manager in DC. Im so stoked. We have a great apartment there. Two bedrooms, 1.5 baths. A gym, a pool, parking... etc!!! Jonah and I wanted to move to better our relationship. We're getting married and we want to have a settled life. He's going to aim for the news industry. Im so proud of him.
There are so many amazing and positive things going on in our lives and I really believe that keeping positive vibes around you and praying... A LOT goes a long way. Without God and positivity I know where I would be... in a shot glass- constantly.
We will keep this updated as we make our new move. We had two weeks to do it! So watch as we laugh and cry or go just plain nuts! Send chocolate! (Maybe this time we will post videos)
