Here is a new favorite song I discovered as I drove around on my vacay in Minneapolis last week. Driving is something I haven’t been able to do for a while and I really miss that because it gives me a chance to listen to the radio and discover new music that way.
Afterlife by Ingrid Michaelson isn’t a new release but somehow I heard it with fresh ears and it became my courageous, girl-power song as I mentally prepared to return to New York. Although I have moments of sadness for being apart from my family and friends whom I love SO much, I also became so excited and hopeful to get back to this New York living thing I started.
I thought to myself, if I quit and went back to Minneapolis right now, it would feel like NYC didn’t even happen. Though at times I felt discouraged, I needed to go back to make a dent in my life and create some memories. Heck, I haven’t even made a friend yet and I know there is one here for me. I got so inspired and am convinced that there is a community here; church, dancing and photography community that I can’t wait to find. It’s now my goal to not leave until I do.
After all, we’re gonna be alright…we’ve always got the fight in us.
