Here we are eleven years later, and its still hard to wrap your mind around the fact that the face of America has changed forever. Every year the memories start to set in, and we all gather around talking about where we were, what we were doing and quite possible what we were drinking on the morning of the September 11 attacks.
I try to make it to New York annually, this year I wasn’t able to, and this was the one year I should have…
Recently someone had asked if I had always been this way, “Have you always been this extreme about life, and wanting love all the time, and so overly obsessed with the sun and the moon, and the blah blah blah?” Well, my answer to that was, “No”, but I’m glad I am now.
Everyone says that September 11, changed their lives, everyone has a reason for why this day makes them breathe a thousand nights…my story is not any more or less interesting than those you’ve heard, but its my story nonetheless, and lets just say that I’m happy to see the sun everyday, and enormously thankful for the moon at night.
I’m obsessed with living, because once upon a time my life was almost cut short, and I’m open to love always, because that’s my reason for living. If ever I need a reminder I’ll sit back and remember September 11, 2001, because it truly changed my life forever.
I came across Dr. Mikee on instagram when, @madeinbrazil78 thought it was a good idea to cheer a girl up. IT WORKED! Meet Dr. Mikee, the sexiest Dr on instagram at the moment and one of NYC finest men in white.
If you have been following me on twitter, then you have also been living my life through pictures, local events, my soul searching trip to the West Coast, and my return to NYC as a single girl. While taking a look back on the many adventures my life has undergone this year, I only have one things to say: I am completely grateful for the year I have endured.
This year has been the year of growth, and acceptance. 33 came in with so much to offer, and I couldn’t have done it without my family. I also need to give thanks to those I’ve met whom have touched my heart in many ways, the classes I have taken, the bloodshot nights working on my book, the job I’m completely thankful for, your constant support, and above all, God .
Lets take a look at my life in 2011, and prepare for a beautiful and full of wisdom 2012.
It’s that time again when I’ll be taking a break from the blog. I dislike doing it but sometimes a girl’s gotta do, what a girls gotta do. It’s just me, myself and I trying to keep you interested, and for that alone I have to take a moment to myself to bring you something wonderful. In the mean time I will be working on school, my novel, and preparing for my fabulous trip to New York City; the concrete jungle where dreams are made of. Its been almost 10 years since I’ve gone to New York as a single girl. I have always had a love affair with the City, the way it feels under my feet, the way it smells, and the way every corner keeps their eyes on my thoughtful moves, New York as always been my everything. The place I went too to hide from the world, the place I’ve held so close to my heart, the place that now I return with all the wisdom it has shared with me throughout the years. I will forever be a New York City, Carrie. Big, I’m coming home!
So until then MWAH, I will see you when I return.
