Just like every typical weekend I’d spend one day walking around this city with an exciting heart. It’s been more than 3 years since I moved to New York, but thankfully this place always has something new hiding and waiting for you to explore! Whether it’s a fancy coffee shop or an invigorating juice bar! This is the outfit that I wore last Saturday. And yes……I wore a pair of striped wide legs despite of the hot and humid air.
And here I’d love to share a little story of my life..
There was once a short period in my life where I was miserably alienating myself to this place. To even think about it right now I just want to laugh at myself for being so foolish how I used to keep myself feeling deflated all the time. I was living by myself, going to college full-time and doing an internship. Although I know this sounds as fulfilling as it should be, somehow I was feeling very empty and alone..
However, the silver lining came to me and everything changed after I started to persuade myself going out on weekends instead of snuggling in bed all day with my homework and frosted flakes chocolate cereal (Yes, I used to have it as my daily snack.) And what did I usually do outside? Well, I ran along the hudson river, spent time in some of my favorite museums, finished homework in some of the finest cafes and maybe shop around Papyrus. I pretty much walked to everywhere in the city instead of taking the subway so that I could walk past many different neighborhoods. It’s true that at the end of the day I was usually dog-tired and was literally dragging my feet back to home! But I’d still feel thankful that I took every step to discover and be inspired that “life is worth living, doing, feeling and being in it.”
Ever since I seriously hate to stay at home during weekend even in my busiest time in life! Hopefully everyone who’s reading my experience would be encouraged and to take herself out too. Go interact and spend some quality time with your own city, no matter which part of the world you are living in!
