We are one decision away from a completely different life✨
It takes one moment, one conversation, one experience, one decision—to completely change your life. This was one of them. I took a spontaneous 15-hour bus ride to New York a month and a half ago. I intended to stay for 3 days. I stayed for 6. None of it made sense and yet all of it made sense.
If you haven’t read “The Third Door” by @alexbanayan
, take this as a nudge. Why NY? Long story short, Alex invited me to a book event he was speaking at as one of his personal guests over Instagram. When something like that happens, you say YES. You figure it out. I knew I’d have an amazing time & meet the people I was meant to meet. What I didn’t know was just HOW much I was going to be supported and loved throughout the way for FOLLOWING MY HEART ✨💓
Taking the step to GO, placing myself in NY put me in the perfect geographical location for magic to happen. I met who I was meant to meet. I also was able to reach out to one of my other loves—@dybrkr
(6am dance parties!). A message to @eliclarkdavis
and I was on my way to visit the HQ. Funny—they had already heard from Alex Banayan about the girl who took the 15-hr bus ride to watch him speak. It was Wednesday and Eli asked if I was going to be around that Friday for the 5-year anniversary Daybreaker party. “No,” I said. It was my birthday the next day & my departure flight was booked for that afternoon. Yet somehow through fate & meeting @alex_marchillo @elisarosemusica
(book rec coming your way: BELONG by Radha Agrawal—astonishing), I did not make my flight that afternoon.
Me: “I don’t think I’m gonna make my flight.”
Alex M: “We already knew that.”
Because I was met with actually realizing a dream. It’s been my dream to attend an NYC Daybreaker (where it all began) for years yet I had no idea how or when. And when I was invited, my heart was DING DING DINGING. There it was. Right in front of me. And that experience of saying YES to that moment was a tipping point. Of realizing bigger dreams. Of DOING what I DO. Of living a heart-driven life.
It’s why I’m in LA right now.
Thank you @sparklewhat
for letting me process on your typewriter!✨
