Goodbye, my inner island-boy!

Life works in wonderful ways! Though sometimes it can be hard to believe that, it actually does when you start thinking more rational. In the last two years, I've been slowly working on making all my dreams come true one by one and recently, I made a major decision that has changed my life.

I'm a big believer that we are constantly changing and learning about ourselves. At least for me, that has been my main focus in the last two years. I decided to finally take a step back and listen to my inner-self. Something I learn throughout this time is that sometimes we don't listen or act on what we already know is the right thing to do. But unfortunately, things don't always go as we please and life has other plans for us. This is also how I learn to be careful what you wish for. Once I decided to listen to my inner-self, I knew things weren't going in the right direction and some part of me just had hope it would all work out. But thinking rationally, I knew things weren't going to work out so I act on it and made changes. Haven't been an easy ride and sometimes I do doubt myself but somehow it feels right this time.

In the last few months, I knew I needed to make a change somewhere. I wasn't too sure where or what or how, but something needed to change. Then life decided to make that choice for me. Those who have been following me for a while would know that I tent to move locations quite often. So often people don't even know where I live or where I am at all times. This can be helpful for security reasons but not so much when you trying to work on a million things at once. And is true, I don't like to stay in one place for a long time because I learn that I get bored easily. Also, learned that doing this keeps me more productive and inspired. But because I put into production a few projects already, I come to the realization that I won't be able to multiply myself and be at all locations at once. This had me make the rational decision to officially stay in one location.

Because of my "can't stay in one place for a long period of time" situation; it got me thinking, could the island-boy officially become the city-boy? Most of the time I have been rolling around between Long Island (which is located out-east of the city of new york) and New York City itself. It was nice being back and forward between these two places because it gave me the right environment combination to think of projects and put them to production. Especially once the summer season started. But now the summer season is over and all the thinking and planning have been done, it is time to put it all in production once and for all. This will require me to stay focus, stay in one location and hope for the best. That's why I have to say goodbye to my island-boy life and say hello to my official city-boy life.
