Transitioning: LA Update 1

Nothing in my life has ever come easy... When I think about it, I remember all the times I struggled to get through college and even taking it as far back as simply passing my drivers test when I was 16 (that was a challenge in which I failed the first time - I can't be the only one....). 

With that said, today's blog post is a little more open, vulnerable, and honest because those three words describe my life best at the moment. It's been a minute since I've updated the blog, but as many may know from my last post in April, a new stage in my life began and I'm out here chasing it.

Sometimes I feel as a millennial that this society can sell us dreams full of unrealistic hope and encourage us to just quit so easily because the grass "is always greener on the other side" or as seen on the next Instagram post.

If you have been keeping up with me on my socials, you'd know that I am currently transitioning to Los Angeles. Transitioning is a big word, and adjustment is even bigger. However, I knew it wasn't going to be easy. If it were easy, every person who's ever wanted to do the same would have already accomplished it. Those who have taken this path inspire me endlessly because I know it's all possible. 

I get questions from you guys, friends, and family on the daily asking if I have officially moved because of how much time I've been spending out here in Cali. Answer is, I have not. My monthly trips out to LA have been all about hustle, networking, and challenges. Some may ask, why? And my simple answer to that would be; because I am transitioning. Picking up and leaving isn't as easy as people make it out to be. In all honesty, all my trips out to Los Angeles thus far have been mainly about securing a role in what I love doing. My influencer work plays a major part in that, however I want to take my talents to a whole new level because I have trust in my potential and my potential won't allow me to just sit at home and wait for an opportunity to come to me (it'll never work out if you just wait for something to come knocking at your door).  I'm making those opportunities for myself. 

I have experienced a ton of humbling challenges that (have taken a lot of prayer) I know will be all worth it. Instead of calling this transition a struggle, I'm calling it a blessing. I GET to do this, I GET the opportunity to make this happen, and I'm so fortunate that I GET to chase this goal with no limitations. 

I'm so excited I can share all these experiences and tips with you all as I move onto this major move unapologetically. Hopefully my raw experiences can encourage you to believe that it's all possible, whatever you set your mind to. Trust me, in a matter of four months; I graduated, let go of a stagnant relationship, and booked endless plane tickets to LA in order to call it home. Anything can happen! 

Until next update,
