I always try to be honest here and this time is no difference. And even though it is not #FridayTruths time I do have a few truths to share 🙂
ALERT – not a fitness related post so it’s totally OK to be bored to read about me mumbling away 😉
It has been a few tough days around here lately. This past weekend @mymamus and I started a conversation – you know one of those eye opening ones that happen once in a while in every relationship… the ones that aren’t always easy but they do always worth it… This made me rethink a few things and re-evaluate. So here are some of those thoughts 🙂
When we first moved to London (about a year and half ago) I had absolutely no expectations from this city. Coming from New York – for me one of the most amazing places on the planet!!! – I knew that it would be hard to love anything else as much but I did promise myself to try and have an open mind. Well I completely messed up and broke this promise… I am so sorry London, it’s not you it’s me!
I admit that I never gave London the fighting chance it deserves.
I admit that missing NY made me (literally hate) everything about London.
I admit that this turned me into a pretty miserable person who all I did was complain day in day out about everything I didn’t like.
Well, I admit that this is OVER now! I am not sure how I got here, I used to absolutely love new adventures and I used to always see everything in life as an amazing opportunity. Somewhere along this journey of mine though, I think I lost sight of what matters the most… So thank you @mymamus ❤ for this eye opening conversation!
So I promised myself that from now on I WILL give London the chance it deserves because I am sure it’ll live up to the challenge 😉 I might have forgotten for a bit to be grateful for all the experiences I’ve gained, the amazing people I met and the fact that I have an incredible job, that allows me to be independent and creative everyday but not anymore and not ever again 🙂
So I might not be able to run for the time being, but I sure as hell can walk! And London, I am about to walk the hell out of you and find out all of your secrets 😉 This week its the first time since we moved away from the states that I feel like myself again, I feel like the girl I used to be, the adventurous girl, the fighter, the girl who sees opportunities where others see problems ❤ 😀
-Not the best selfie but I totally love this photo… It’s way before I had a blog and I remember that I woke up feeling happy and full and I snapped this and sent it to @mymamus!
I believe an apology is in order…
To London, I am sorry I hated you for the past year (apart from the “tube” which I still hate 😉 ) you are an interesting and beautiful place!
To all my friends here, I am sorry I’ve been this person that no one likes because all she does is complain all the time and thank you for sticking it out with me. I ‘ve met people here that I know they will be friends for life…
To @mymamus, you rock 😉 – I know i am too stubborn and thank you for having the patience to make me listen 😉 😛
To all of you, thank you everyone for following my journey, you have been an amazing support network!!
To me, I am sorry for not letting you fly and be yourself all this time! Go ahead…
