Make new friends
Middle of nowhere

Here’s the problem:

I live in the middle of nowhere, and there are very few people my own age around here. I could go to Plattsburgh or Burlington to meet people, and I probably will, but it’s just so far and I have such limited time and money.

That, and I’m so self-conscious about sitting alone somewhere or going out somewhere by myself.

New York

The most positive thing I could have ever done for myself was move across the country. I left my comfort zone of Alabama and moved to New York, where I knew pretty much nobody.

Within 6 months, I had held down 2 part-time jobs, been offered and accepted my first full-time position, found a pretty fantastic boyfriend, and lost 40 pounds.

It’s not been 7 months, and the only thing that has changed is the boyfriend. So we’re not together anymore, but that’s ok, because at least I learned something from the experience.

I want to try to continue to do positive things for myself every day. That’s my goal.
