I’ve missed my blog so much. If you didn’t know, I recently made a move from Connecticut to Nashville for a job promotion with Nordstrom! I’ve always had such a passion for the fashion industry, and I’m trying to get as much experience as possible in all different aspects.
Moving to a new city where you don’t know anyone is very challenging. Especially as you get older. I’m not transferring schools where there are a bunch of kids my age. I’m not in college where everyone has a fresh start and looking to make new friends. I’m in a professional setting, in a new place, where everyone already has their life started.
Moving away puts a lot of pressure on a person; but to me, in a good way! It has taught me so many things, such as…
1.) Becoming independent and learning what makes me happy
2.) Learning to do things for myself and not settling for anything less
3.) Cutting ties with any negativity that was surrounding me
4.) Keeping the relationships I have with the people I love, strong
5.) Realizing who I really want in my life
6.) Most importantly, growing up and learning how to support myself, especially in tough times.
Of course I’m homesick, sometimes sad, sometimes really happy, and sometimes confused. But I’m 23. I don’t need to have everything figured out, and I only have one life to explore and enjoy new places. No regrets.
To anyone debating whether or not to make the move to a new place, you can do it. It’s a great experience! Give it a chance, a real chance. You’ll never know what it’s like if you don’t.
Now… Here are some pictures I’ve taken since I’ve moved here!
