I’m not going to rant about not blogging for the last 53 days. Life and work gets in the way sometimes, so there. What I will say, is that I have so much more quality of life when I blog and document. Blogging brings with it a chance to pause and reflect.
So, works been crazy busy with lots of traveling, first to Mauritius which was amazing, then our own vacay to NYC! I decided to write this post mainly because I want to encapsulate what a trip to New York leaves me with. This visit definately confirms to me that there is truth in there being an Empire State of mind.
New York is one of those places that takes your breath away and leaves you inspired to do more. Somehow New Yorkers have found a way to work, and still do life and with as much vigor. As a tourist maybe you only get to see the best of a city, but this time around we tried to get more in touch with New York culture and didn’t do much touristy stuff.
New Yorkers are expressive, confident, not apologetic and just do them. There is no shyness, indecisiveness, reproach or anything, people seem to know their worth. If there’s anything that I’ve learned from this was to know your worth, know what you want and pursue it shamelessly. American’s are often described as arrogant, brash and selfish. Personally I think they are just simply confident and know what they want.
All in all this holiday has left me inspired to do more than what I currently do, to embrace circumstance, and there’s no such thing as the right time. These are all things I already know, but sometimes just need a reminder to get out of the funk that gets in the way of you’re vision.
