A year ago today I started my first big job after graduating from college. If you would have told me a year ago that this is where my life would be, I never would have believed you.
I started my new career with high hopes. I took on as many challenges as I possibly could, and worked hard to achieve recognition from my peers and upper management. I moved on to new programs and kept receiving a plethora of assignments, each just as daunting as the last. I took them in stride and completed each task, waiting with bated breath for the next one to come my way.
The funny thing is though, that sometimes, with all of that rush and excitement — it can take its toll. Instead of feeling energized, I had felt tired and drained. I was being worked level grades above my years of experience and knowledge, and I was starting to feel the strain.
However, when you least expect it, life has a way of telling you that when the time is right — to keep working hard and stay true to yourself and your goals — you can create the outcome you wish to see for yourself and make your dreams a reality.
And I’m here to say … Dreams really do come true!
Ever since I can remember, New York City has always been such an important influence in my life. I don’t remember a day after my first visit to the big city, where I wasn’t constantly inspired by its eccentric energy.
Whether in my artwork, stories, on my graphic t’s, pictures I put up on my bedroom walls … the city was everywhere.
It was hard to escape from — featured in almost every movie, various songs and as a popular backdrop for many novels, this beautifully crazy city is a force to be reckoned with!
I’m very excited to say that because of an amazing opportunity … I am about to call this place home!
I couldn’t be happier to start this new adventure and take this big new step in my career!
More life happenings to be featured soon! 🙂
