Someone wrote me an email yesterday that got me thinking.
“So many people talk about doing something but never do. Takes desire,determination and help from others to make it a reality.“
So, how long have I been talking about and making a fool out of myself , wanting to live my dream in New York?
Back in August 2006 when I booked my first flight to New York I didn’t realize that I was on a path towards my reason for living. I was just curios. But then I got hooked and it became a battle for me. It never really occurred to me how much I would have to give up to get here. A month ago it looked like all the hard work and effort and all the things I had to let go, was wasted but then … Poof!
I’m in a bobble and you can’t touch me. I’m dancing on cloud 9.
At the moment I’m taking my time finishing my Venti iced latte at Starbucks because there is no reason to rush home to Park Slope.
There is no reason to worry about the fact that my return ticket to DK is next Tuesday.
It’s not that I love flying back and forth but I know that I will be going back to New York August the 2.
And I’m allowing myself to call it my 10th trip to the city.
And I’m also allowing myself to announce that 2010 is the year where I will be living here. Even though I will go back to Denmark by the end of October. Just for a few more months… Responsibilities.
That’s what I call determination.
