6 years and 5 months ago I packed my life in two bags and a carry-on to go and live in a city I’d never been to. Following my girlfriend to NYC for her school, I was excited about the chance to see what life outside of California was like. Figuring out if I was meant to be in California by seeing how it was living in another state was sort of my goal.
It was supposed to be a 2 year adventure, but I guess that’s not how the world works. My then girlfriend is now my wife and we’re finally heading back west to SF on Nov 21. We are excited.
I’m so grateful for all my friends in NYC. What a place it is. Live there for a while if you can. It took us 6 months to get comfortable and not be overwhelmed, but getting through that was so worth it.
As we head back, this quote I discovered via Whitney Hess is on my mind:
“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” – Heraclitus
