Sometimes life comes at you fast and you don’t have the time to analyze your choices. So you make the first one that comes to mind. It’s may not always seem like the best one, but it will always be your gut instinct. Which, in my opinion, is the best choice you can make. Ever.
The few times I have gone against my gut, I’ve hit walls. No. More like walked into a demolition site with 20 seconds ’till explosion. Needless to say, it has not been pretty.
This time, while my decision was sudden, it was exactly what my heart wanted…it just didn’t know it yet.
It all started with the end of my 6 year relationship with a boy I was really never compatible with, but loved deeply. I was about to start working on my B.A. at St. Thomas University and had finally landed a job at a local newspaper when he decided we just weren’t working out anymore. Let’s just say, I never saw that coming.
So I moved across the country to Southern California, to make a clean fresh start. The move wasn’t as hard as I had expected it to be. I mean, I have family here so I wasn’t really leave too much behind besides my friends…and him. The choice at first made me feel like I was losing my mind. how could I just pack up and move 3,000 miles away from the only home I’d ever known??? Did people actually do this? What if I didn’t like it…where would I go?
All these doubts and questions and worries clouded my mind for weeks. Until the day I booked my one-way ticket out of Miami. From the moment I printed my confirmation, this odd calm came over me. Like for the first time in my life I was doing the right thing. I was going to be exactly where I should be. Like, the right place at the right time.
I packed my bags, quit my job, transferred out of school and said "Hellooo City of Angels." And I have to admit, this city is exactly where I should be. Now lets just see, if its ready for a Miami girl like me.
