Updates

Sorry for not updating my blog in ages. I have been out of touch, dealing with family matters and per usual working my a-- off!

I am enjoying the fall weather, this is my fav season by far! Sweaters, apple cider, holiday shopping, boots, hot cocoa, open fires, candles and a lot of good shows to watch on TV!.

The other week I worked a golf event in New Jersey. Good times!

My best friend Rosie is pregnant and she threw a baby shower. Was actually my first one ever so I was super excited to be a part of this special event.

I feel like everyone around me has babies or move away from NYC and I have also lost a few people around me. People dying is the most scary thing to me. I honestly feel like life is running away from me. Time flies and all I do is work work work. We can't travel anywhere, no one can visit me from back home and I feel stuck. Almost like a prison. Don't get me wrong, I am very happy and blessed in many ways but I have been feeling for a while now that I need a change. I am not 36 years old and I want to take advantage of my youth. We don't have any children yet and now is the time to live life to the fullest. But for a while it just feels like I am standing still and not growing in any way. This entire year has just flown by without any new memories or elevations basically. I has just been a one gear year, waiting for time and the virus to pass. I am bored.

The turning point came when I found out that my father has lung cancer and an aneurysm. That moment I really felt like I gotta stop what I am doing. Life is so short and fragile and everything is not about money and career. Family is so much more important. To spend time together, create memories and be there for each other. I made a very big decision to leave my job and book a ticket home to my hometown. I am needed there now and it feels great to have made the decision. I might come back to my position at our company next year again but as of now I am taking the rest of the year off to focus on nothing else but my family. Money will come and go but memories are forever.

This is my last week at work and in NYC. I have already packed my suitcases but have a lot of things to do before I am ready for take off. Cash has to have all her paperwork together. It is complicated and expensive but has to be done. Tie up lose ends with work and prepare for departure.

I am looking forward to cook for my parents, take long walks with Cash & Flow, read books, see my brothers, nieces and nephews! Celebrate Christmas without feeling that I have to count down the days before it is time to go back to NYC again. This will be a rest and charge of my batteries. I can't wait!

One thing that I'm grateful for with dealing with my dad's cancer fight, is that, at least it's not a sudden death, that is to say, there is an opportunity for all loved ones to visit and talk and say all the things we should say before the end, while still trying to avoid death with all of the latest treatments. The pandemic makes this more difficult, and yet as it did for you, it puts things in a new perspective, that love is all, and material possessions aren't worth anything when it comes to health and sickness and life and death. I think the trip back home will be good for your soul and the right thing to do. Have a good visit Lina, take good care <3 hug
