Today it dawned on me.
Now that I have reached my personal goal of flipping my life upside-down, leaving everyone I know and love behind, and moving to Miami….I realized that I am living in one of the most beautiful, sexy, intriguing, and exciting cities on the planet.
I am certain the sun rises and sets exclusively for this place. The wind blows differently. The moon hangs seductively. There is a certain confidence here that I’ve never seen elsewhere. It is inspiring. It’s a whole over-exaggerated, underappreciated world here. And now, it is my world.
I am free to do whatever I want, whenever I want. I don’t have to answer to anyone, anywhere. I know only a handful of people here…and luckily they are all just as passionate about life as I am. I have a real life paradise at my fingertips 24/7. There are infinite places to go, countless people to meet, journal-worthy romances to be had.
Being single in a new, sun-kissed city, is an additional bonus to this situation. Especially with my addiction to post sunset social situations. In this sort of predicament, I have it made. It is in fact, what I would define as the perfect recipe for total and complete bliss.
Take one book smart, street smart, beautiful (thank you mom & dad) girl with an unstoppable drive and desire for success and life….throw in healthy doses of faith, sarcasm, humor, confidence…top it off with extensive knowledge of any professional sports team….and there you have it.
Carefree. Careful. Careless. Who cares?
There is nothing more I’d rather be doing. There is no place I’d rather be. I recommend this approach to life to anyone, anywhere. My only regret is that it took me thirty-some years to get here.
Live your life. Stay true to your convictions. Follow your gut. Trust what God has placed in your heart. Have a mojito. Have another.
At the end of the day it’s your journal entry. Your novel. Your storyline. Tune out nay-sayers. Erase negative people from your life. Surround yourself with positive thinkers and doers. Let me repeat…thinkers AND doers. Nothing is worse than people who talk the talk and never walk the walk. Take a seat, honey.
Whatever your path, make sure it is lined with jewels that no one but you could ever out-glisten.
I did…and I’ve been shining ever since!
