It has been a minute since I have written, its nice to always be busy but sometimes I miss quarantine, ( not complaining I know people do not have jobs at the moment) but I began to really enjoy the lazy life! As I type this I am sitting on my couch, some almond milk pumpkin cold brew on my coffee table and coco by my side. Lately I find myself looking out from my kitchen or while I’m on my couch and just in awe of the fact I freakin did it! I uprooted my life in NY the home I’ve known since birth and moved to Blythewood, SC.
I spend my days at work, working hard but laughing everyday. It is almost like I’ve known these women for years. I smile going into work, I am 100% myself at my job, bubbly, sometimes cranky when I need more coffee, random complaining but most of all laughing and working as a team. Being down here has changed me, I don’t feel anxious with the NY aggression and attitudes that usually came at me. People say Yes ma’am and No sir, thank you sweetheart and pleasure meeting you, you have no choice but to be happy with happy people.
For some reason my addiction to Starbucks has skyrocketed moving down here and I wonder why after bills and Starbucks I’m broke as a joke! I’ve become addicted to more things being down here as well, another is making “me time” sometimes I just like to BE. It can range from a bath with a glass of wine to sitting on my couch listening to one of the many podcasts I’m obsessed with. Its an interesting journey getting to know yourself again, the good, the bad, the flaws & the awesomeness.
If you had asked me even a year ago would I leave NY I would have said no way, but now I can’t imagine not being here in SC. Life changes, time continues on, and you are left with a choice to take what your given and do the best you can or wallow in the changes and keep looking back. After over a year since my life changed I am no longer looking back. I’ve only been down here 3 months (today actually), I cannot wait to see how much more I learn about myself and southern living.
Till next time…
