Press Pause

One of my really good friends told me that I should take the month of November and press pause on life. It sounded like such a great idea. I tried to press pause. However, my version of pause is probably not the pause that he was talking about. I think he meant to sit and reflect, turn off all electronics and focus on certain aspects of my life. What I did instead was create my version of pause and that was probably fast forward to the max!

I literally went from New York to Boston to Los Angeles to Boston and back to New York. I went on multiple interviews, met with multiple people in various industries to figure out what it is that I like. I thank the people who I met with so far and appreciate them helping me with this journey of self-discovery. Nothing short of epic. I am so thankful to have been able to catch up with old friends and this past weekend I was able to meet up with a friend of mine that I’ve literally known since we were 16 during the days of aim.

He remembers that we talked on dial-up, I don’t remember it being dial but you never know. It was awesome. It was great. I’ve found a new home and I want it to be Los Angeles. It’s a city that is so different from what I know on the East Coast. I think that it could be great and if not, I can always come home but I’m at an age where I need to take chances. Baby steps are great but sometimes taking a chance is what is going to propel you to the next level in life…….I hate taking pictures but I took some pictures…..

Just a little bit of what I’ve been up to since November. I can’t wait to actually take some time and press pause……

How do you press pause?

  2. Living in Los Angeles in amazing…and doing so while you are young is a lot of fun. I spent a good part of my 20’s there and LOVED it. And you are right….you can always give it a try and head back to the East Coast anytime! Sounds like “press pause” means live life to it’s fullest for you….and that is a life with no regrets…you are wise beyond your years.

    1. One of the things I noticed in the people that I met and just the neighborhoods, its a city of people that wear many different hats. It’s ok to have multiple hobbies and interests be viable job opportunities if your willing to go after it. Whereas the North East, you have one specific thing and that’s it. That means a lot cause I wasn’t sure if I wasn’t making the right decision in leaving the salon but something felt right. No regrets.
