It’s now been two years since I left NYC.
I wrote a post on this day last year, and want to keep reflecting.
Being from the “New York Metropolitan area”, living in NYC was my wish come true.
I was excited to move to New Zealand, but leaving close friends from middle school, high school, college and the start of my career was hard.
People say to me/ask all the time:
“I could never do that!”
“How did you do that?”
“Did you really want to do that?”
“What was it like?”
I took a chance.
Right before I left, a close friend asked me, in concern, if I really wanted to make the move, and if it was easy.
I told her the truth: it hasn’t always been easy, but it’s been amazing and the best way to get to know myself and strengthen my friendships and romantic relationship.
