Today, I am incredibly thankful for the journey I have taken to relocate to South Florida and the current season of my life. This gratitude encompasses all the people who have influenced my journey, my past actions and decisions, and all areas of personal growth I have experienced. The day’s emotions and exhaustion have led me to reflect on the steps it took me to be where I am today–sitting on my own couch in my own apartment in the Sunshine State, miles away from my family and friends in my hometown. Loneliness and confusion struck again after being reunited with my family for a few days, locking myself out of my apartment (first time for everything?), and wishing I didn’t have to take a flight every time I wanted to see my people. Somehow, despite these feelings, I am still feeling confident in my journey to the Sunshine State.
There is undeniable beauty in trusting the unknown and believing in a higher power to support your life’s journey. Within my heart, I have had many questions in the first quarter of 2015. I sensed there was something big coming this year and that I would have to trust my intuition. I made a vision board at the beginning of this year, which completely reflects my current life. It’s amazing how the Law of Attraction works it magic, and it seemed to happen quickly for me. However, I don’t feel it was an easy process to transition to a new location in South Florida–nor was it an easy decision to make. It took a while to get to this point, and there have been many emotions along the way, but I have persevered and made it to where I am today. As I mentioned yesterday, FEAR is an awakening emotion. When offered a position at my current job in Florida, I first felt joy and gratitude, then immediate deep-rooted feelings of fear. How could I leave all my family, friends, and roots in New York? Was it enough to think I was pursuing my dream? Yet somehow, I made it to today. I am respecting the process and appreciating the ups and the downs – just embracing it all.

Being reunited with my family in Northern California is a blessing beyond words. I’ve missed the bonding with my parents and two younger brothers–even the bickering and daily frustrations that come with spending a great deal of time together. Since moving to Florida, it’s been difficult to be so many miles away from my family as they’ve always been my #1 priority. Therefore, I was stoked for our reunion and adventure to San Francisco, Napa Valley, and Yosemite National Park.
In our first day of San Francisco exploration, we tackled many areas. Since we have a brief trip in this wonderful section of California, our itinerary is tight.
