My Closeup.

This is my video interview for Ross the PR man to send out to different news stations! After three takes and plenty of laughs, I finally got it….lol! Of course I know the story VERY well, but when it came time to film what had to be a very, very short overview it was difficult to know what to say and what to leave out. We have already heard from WNBC, they are very interested in the story!!!! Hopefully this video will send many news stations our way.I’m so excited about this opportunity to help The Save the Cord Foundation.  I couldn’t have done it without Justin. With a few cups of coffee and tea, he spent two late nights making sure the video is perfect, and he did an amazing job.

Hope you enjoy!

Big CITY Big CHANGE

View From new apartment in LIC

I just moved to Long Island City with Justin, because I needed a change in my living situation. I was living with my two sisters, my sisters on- again -off- again girlfriend and one of my good friends. There were 5 of us all in one manhattan apartment. At times it was very exciting but other times very hectic.  I had to get out of there! If you could only see the view from the new place in LIC, it is breath taking!  The skyline picture at the top is the view but it doesn’t even do it justice. When I look at the beautiful city of Manhattan I can’t help but remember how I got here.

In August 2008 I left my small town in Indiana to embark upon a journey of a lifetime in NYC! I didn’t know then, exactly why I went, or what the great city would have in store for me. I know now that it is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.  My sisters had been planning to go to the city.I had not considered it an option for me. Until one day while listening to one of my favorite songs, Vienna by Billy Joel with tears rolling down my face it just hit me that I had to go to NYC.

It hasn’t been a smoothe ride, and at times it has been a bit overwhelming.  I came to the city with no job and no degree. The job searching seemed endless and to top it off I had to re-etablish all of my healthcare with doctors up here.  The first couple of months were hard but I found a good job and had great luck finding wonderful healthcare. Even with all of the hard times, the experiences I’ve gained and the people I’ve met have changed my life forever.  I have gotten to see the Rocketts at Christmas time, taken an acting class in times square, ate Valentines day dinner at the Waldorf Astoria. I have seen them blow up the Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade balloons I took walks in Central park and watched the leaves change and then fall.  I met  Justin and can’t imagine the city without him. So I have done and seen things I never would have dreamed possible.  Sometimes change and taking risks can be scary, often times it is daunting but most of the time it’s worth it.

“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in the movement there is life and in change there is power.” – Alan Cohen

Counting my blessings in the sun

Me on the cruise enjoying a yummy drink!

So, I just got back from a wonderful cruise in the eastern carribeann! Justin and I spent an entire week traveling through paradise stopping in Puerto Rico, St Thomas and St.Martin! We enjoyed fabulous food, historical tours, soaking up the sun and of course the occasional fruity drink………Now its time to let the diets begin!!

What I take away most from vacations is they give you time to really reflect on your life.  For me I was reminded of all of things in my life that truly make me happy. I am so blessed to have such a long list of things but most importantly is my family, friends, and my health.  Without any of which I wouldn’t be able to pursue all of my dreams!

Everyday is special in its own way, make sure  to count your blessings dont let them fade away!

Positive Attitudes

 

As everyone knows life can be tough sometimes. You have your good days and you have your bad, when it seems as though you can’t take anymore, you have to remember that tomorrow is another day and nothing ever stays the same! It didn’t matter what news we received or what challenge we were bound to encounter, my mom always had a smile on her face and was prepared for anything! From a very young age she instilled this same attitude in me and for that I am eternally grateful.

So when you are having a rough time, keep a smile on your face, and remember that you only get one life to live; make it a good one.
