I finally moved into the top floor of a downtown loft in Houston. It was great in the beginning. The views were amazing and you get the feeling of being a part of Urban Life. However, it does have its drawbacks. No garden, no balcony (mine didn’t have a balcony), you had to use elevators, taking groceries from your car – through a parking lot and down the hallway to your unit was a hassle.
I’ve always wanted to live in a loft – I did it. I enjoyed it for what it was worth, but I am not sure I would do it again, unless the LOFT had a balcony.
Not only have I travelled to Europe but I did the extreme. I packed my bags, got a ticket to Germany and made the transatlantic crossing – to be with my boyfriend that I recently met online back in Dec ‘06. I know it sounds crazy but sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to life. You just have to do it.
The winds of change blew on my path and I followed it – I followed my heart more importantly and now I am doing that I want to do. I left nursing, I am now living in Europe and my boyfriend (partner) are having fun working together, creatively and starting up a 3D service!
Sometimes, if you want something and want to make a change and know you need to, people let fear and the feeling of ‘comfortability’ get in the way of making these changes. I say, GO FOR IT. You will not believe how incredibly resilient and adaptive the human spirit is if you only allow your self to be open to change. Life is certainly an adventure and you owe it to your self to go out there and enjoy the journey instead of wait for things to come to you!
I love Frankfurt Germany!
Yay, I did it! I got out of nursing early this year. I’ve always wanted to do more creative things in life but somehow I ended up taking a 2 year contract in Texas. I was living in Toronto at the time about to start an internship with B.B.D.O. -an advertising agency when my aunt from Texas came up to visit us and asked why I wasn’t using my nursing. I took nursing for my parents, not for me, however, it’s funny how life’s path takes you .. I have been in nursing for 11 years and knew that one day .. when the Universe permitted. I would be allowed to leave. I say “Allowed” because in ‘96 I gave up my life to ‘God’ for the service of mankind. I know it sounds corny but that is exactly what I did. I figure that nursing was thrown in my life 3 times and therefore it had to mean something, so I played along with the Universe’s plan. Now, after 11 years of nursing, I realized that in some way, I must’ve paid off my karmic debt and now, am allowed to pursue other things, like, publishing an online magazine, being a designer, builder and architect in a metaverse and finally MOVING to Europe! YAY!.
So yes, it is definitely worth leaving nursing, but only if you really want to – and as well, if the Universe allows.
