What a beautiful sunny fall Saturday afternoon, sitting outside enjoying a lovely meal with my amazing girlfriends from Croatia, Lebanon, and New York. We are all so different, I don’t even know if would have ever come together if it weren’t for the fact that we were all neighbors at one point.
I always dreamed of living in the heart of a metropolitan city, working downtown and walking to work and enjoying the city life. And back in 2013 my dream came true, I moved to the heart of the city, and worked one mile away from home. But before that I had a job in the suburbs and I relocated to be closer to work. At the time I was so disappointed that I was moving further and further away from my city life dream. But that move turned out to be the best thing that happened to me, because I met some really amazing women.
Despite the fact that at the time, the move was not what I wanted at all, in reality it brought me to these amazing friends, amongst many other positive things that happened in those few years in the suburbs.
At the end of the day, few years later, I realized the true purpose of that chapter of my life. But what if we could stop fighting our circumstances, and start accepting where we are, and believing that we are there for a reason? Perhaps we can enjoy that moment instead of resisting it. How nice would it be to not only appreciate that journey at some point in the future when the lightbulb goes off, but actually enjoy the ENTIRE journey.
