Hello, world! It’s been a while, huh? I’ve decided to become a pro-skateboarder, which is the reason for my absence from the blogging world. JUST KIDDING!
I spent most of August cleaning, purging and packing up my little apartment in NYC and moving to Soho. It felt really good to get rid of old clothes and junk, as well as assess what items I really need in my closet (and my life).
I did take a break one afternoon last week to learn how to skateboard! It’s been on my to-do list for a long time but I was too scared to try. A few years ago, I came across an Eleanor Roosevelt quote that changed my life and has since become my mantra: “Do one thing every day that scares you.”
Whether it’s taking a new class at Equinox or trying a new restaurant on my own, I try to live outside of my comfort zone as much as possible. It feels good to conquer fears, as small as they may be. I am thankful that a good friend of mine was patient enough to teach me how to skate and put up with my scaredy-cat tendencies. I’m happy to report that I learned in under two hours.
So, if you see me skating around the neighborhood, come and say hi! I’m not going to tell you my address because we’re not cool like that. Don’t follow me home.
