So if you follow me on Instagram @nkmstyling then you know that lately I’ve been missing California. Last year I was in Cali a few times, and it was so nice and refreshing for me. A lotta people were asking me what I was doing out there, and I basically had one answer – “living”
If ya wanna get really technical, I went out there to mainly visit a friend. Well….ok more like a guy I was dating. But then shit got weird and that quickly ended! lol….but I mean, such is life tho, amirite?
But putting that aside, So Cal is truly a beautiful place. Some people warned me that I wouldn’t like it because of my “New Yawk attitude” and “east coast vibe,” but that wasn’t the case at all. I fux with LA vibes heavy. Of course there’s some bougie people out there, but there’s bougie people everywhere. The ones that I met were very friendly and were extremely approachable. I remember one day when I was sitting on the beach, I met this one woman who was working out, and I just thought she was the coolest thing ever. We ended up having a conversation about her personal training business, and I was just amazed at her lifestyle. I wish I could wake up everyday and workout on the beach!
In all honesty, I felt like I was such a happier person out on the west coast. It must be the sunshine. I’m a miserable winter person, so as soon as the season changes – I change. I hate the cold but I do love the big cities, like Chicago and NYC. I had a dream that I was moving back to Chicago, because it really is one of the best cities in the world. I’m obsessed with the Chi. NYC is amazing too, and at one point I planned on moving there to go to FIT for one of their certification programs, but unfortunately I wasn’t ready to make that move. Fear can definitely hold you back! But if its meant to be, it will be.
Most of the time I feel like I’m never tied down to anything – no husband, no kids. And my businesses are remote, so I can pick up and leave wherever I want. That’s the advantage of my lifestyle, but its also hard to really figure out where I wanna be. I don’t think I’ve ever called Buffalo home, and to be honest I’m not sure where home actually is. Right now its a few different places. That’s ok right? Maybe one day I’ll find the right place and be with the right person yanno? Until then..I’ll just let the waves push me along until I find my place.
