My journey in New York has brought me many things: a boyfriend whom I love, jobs that come and go, contacts that may last forever, and experiences I will never forget. Most importantly, New York has given me the opportunity to pursue a dream in interior design. As I finish the first day at my new job, I want to contemplate on where I was, have been, and am today. Wow, time has flown by.
Two years later, I have proudly worked at a high end residential design firm and learned more than I thought imaginable. I just finished my own design project on the upper west side which helped me get started on my own and am now working on a new project on the upper east side. I am beyond thankful. I just started a new job, in addition to my private work, at a design firm that I love. Can you even believe it? Life just keeps handing me work and fulfilling my dreams each day, and in between all of the major milestones I have made wonderful and important contacts and connections.
In closing, I saw this post on Pinterest and had to share because I can relate in many ways.
Every time that I want to cry and give up (which believe it or not happens often), I need to remember ALL that I am grateful for and be glad that I am able to work hard in order to live out my lifelong dreams.
