Adventure




Life is nothing without adventure. It's dull and empty. It becomes tedious.

This is something that I have learned the past year. Through months and months of change, my life has grown into a crazy adventure that I never want to end. And it didn't begin when I moved to Italy, it began well before that.

My adventure started over a year ago, when I decided I did not want to stay on at my internship. When it ended, I started working retail. Then, after the holiday season, I worked only one day a week, dreaming about something more on my days off.

Making these changes for myself was a catalyst for me. For better decisions, for better experiences. I started working at the most amazing place, SoulCycle - and still after living and working in Italy for four months, its the best job I've ever had.

Now I wasn't just on an adventure by myself anymore, I had this family that was on it with me. SoulCycle changed my mindset and my priorities. It helped me grow as an individual because it offers you an environment where people believe in your dreams. I know, it sounds corny and cliché, but its true.

When I presented my opportunity to go live and work in Italy for a year to my manager, she simply asked me if she could trade places with me. The support that I received from my soul family was incredible and I miss them everyday.

...And my adventure continued - I still remember the day I arrived in Florence. As my roommate and I pulled up to our apartment in our taxi, my mind was moving a million miles a minute and I was so nervous. I was about to embark on something that terrified me, yet I still went for it.

Yes,  I've been lucky enough to live in a beautiful city and travel all around Europe. And while most people might believe that thats what my adventure has been, its not. My adventure has been being able to grow into the person I've always wanted to be. Someone who lives -truly lives and doesn't worry about what other people think of their decisions. Someone who has been able to conquer a fear of living so far from home and loving every minute of it.

So, don't think that your adventure needs to be picking up your life and moving across the world. It doesn't have to be that big. It can be starting your dream job, a new relationship, a family...anything.. Just make it yours.

Prague

Prague is still by far my favorite city in Europe. I feel at home there and who knows, maybe one day it will be.

Cozy Up...


      I'm currently hanging out in my apartment in Florence. Everyone has left already and as I spend      
   my last few days in this apartment, before I fly off on a two and a half week adventure, and before 
      we move, I can't help but think about all of the great times we had here. It's always tough moving somewhere new, with a bunch of strangers. I can honestly say that it was all worth it - the   
      uncontrollable laughter that echoed through these walls convinces me that all of the stress and tears and uncomfortableness of it all, was worth it. 




Sunnies: Ray Ban, Necklace: Capwell + Co. (c/o), Sweater: TopShop, Jacket: J. Crew,
