I was talking with a friend recently and she remarked that she was amazed by how much my life has changed. She said I am stronger and happier. I didn’t know what to say.
To me, hardly a thing has changed. Sure, I moved to Los Angeles from the east coast but, that’s about it. I have the same career and I have the same aspirations. I’m still single and I don’t have a million dollars. So what is so different? Why am I stronger and happier.
Has a life in Los Angeles made that much of a difference?
In a way it has. But it’s not the life in Los Angeles, it’s the decision to move here in the first place.
I don’t know exactly when it was but the day I decided to live my life in a manner of my choosing, everything changed. It’s not about having all of the things my heart desires. It’s about looking at the possibilities and opportunities my life has presented me with and making decisions that suit me.
It’s about knowing that I have the power to choose.
Without fear of repercussions.
It’s like the line in one of my favorite movies….
