What I learned during my 2nd year in Miami
Today marked my 2 year anniversary in Miami. This last year has been quite an emotional ride where I’ve doubted and questioned almost all the choices I’ve made since my move from LA. Am I really good at what I do? Should I just take this as an adventure, move back and go back into corporate America? Am I wasting my time? Why can’t I find what I’m looking for career-wise? These are just some of the questions I’ve made myself throughout the year, but I always come back to the thought of I hated where I was at in life when I lived in LA. This was the career I wanted to be in for so many years and I’m finally here. Therefore, I can’t give up. I’ve been emotionally tired so many times that I can’t even count. It’s been quite a journey thus far but that’s how life changing decisions are.
What have I learned? I’ve learned you will lose friends along the way. I’ve learned new friends will come into your life and will care for you, encourage you and push you when you need it the most, more than old friends will. I learned to not change my goal but rather be lenient in the way or ways to achieve it. I learned some people will be ungrateful and when that happens, you just need to walk away and continue with your life. I learned that very few people will actually help you along the way. Many say they will but never do. But because of that, you learn and grow as well. I learned life and God have a way of surprising you and you end up living a life you never expected. I learned you must take every opportunity that knocks at your door because that can lead to something else. I also learned to be open and just let life take its course. God knows what He’s doing and in the end, it will all make sense to me. For those of you who are close to me, you know what my ultimate goal is because I’ve shared it with you personally (very few people know). For those of you who don’t, all I can say is I haven’t achieved it just yet. How long will I stay in Miami? I don’t know. Only time will tell. All I can say is eventually, I will head back to LA but as a totally different person. You have me for another year, Miami. Let’s do this! 💪🏼
