April of 2012 was my most recent blog post, in it I spoke about my wishes of working with children and living in California.
Looking back on it, I had no idea why I wanted to move here. My visions were based solely upon a few friends recommendations that I would love living here. Without much hesitation to the idea, I wrote, thought, talked, and pursued this life.
I can’t say I would change that for the world. I am now living proof of the power of positivity and desire. I wanted it on April 11, 2012 of my last post and now June 22, 2014 I am living that life.
In my first post back, I want to reflect on the past year to catch you all up to speed. Last August I returned from a three-week magical journey to Costa Rica, to my newly assigned 3pm-3am shift at The Miriam Hospital ED. At this point, my accomplice (as he’s called in previous posts) and I were ready to move to California after a summer of pursuing travel nurse opportunities. Despite our tremendous efforts and stress, we had no real desirable leads and decided we would have to stay.
A quick text to a friend in San Diego saying “sorry dude, it’s not going to happen, we can’t find jobs” lead us into the universal pull. Within twenty-four hours, we were forced to suddenly quit our jobs, tell our families we had to move, sell/move/pack an entire loft apartment and move to California.
That was hectic. Three days later, we arrived.
