I've never really been on this boat before…
Not knowing what to expect, not having any plans, and simply just going with the flow.
I, Dahiana Torres, write live from JFK airport, almost embarking on a new journey to the west coast. What awaits me there is unknown, what will happen, a mystery to me. I've always considered myself adventurous, but have always been the type to plan out everything when making moves like this. I have made major changes in my life for this trip, but all have been pointing me towards this direction, and so I'm trusting this boat that I'm on, flowing with the water, and God is my Captain.
I'm nervous, I'm excited, optimistic, positive & scared at the same time. I know the networking pool will open, and many more friendships will be made, it's a little bit more of a month's time away from what I have known as home for the past 5 years. Let's face it, I have never been away on "vacation" for more than 2 weeks at a time. This "vacation" is different. With this "vacation" I know that I don't come back to my regular life. I know that the life I know is no longer going to be the same. That's a whole month away, so let me focus on the right now. Right now, I will board this plane. I will meet very special people in my life that I've never met before, and I will reunite with friends that I haven't seen in a very long time. I will focus on the positive and trust my Spirit, listen to my Spirit, and trust my gut to know that God's got my back.
So friends (not that there are many for now), in the west coast, Dahiana Torres comes. With an ambitious mind, and a "WILL DO" attitude. #IwasBornForThis #HereIComeCalifornia.
