With 2014 now behind us and very positive resolutions set out I decided to start my New Year off with an amazing, positive, heartwarming day in NYC. I just finished a two and a half week assignment in Staten Island and I had the whole day to myself. So I decided to go to my two favourite NYC stops and give myself the positive kick I needed to start this year right.
I started at the Metropolitan Museum. With an Honours Bachelor’s Degree in Art History you’d think I’d have picked something a little less generic; New York has so much to offer with regards to art and galleries. But I love the Met. The environment, the architecture, the exhibits, the people. Everything. I’ll admit I don’t enjoy viewing everything, and it’s impossible to see everything in one day. So I grabbed the map and headed straight for my favourite galleries. Some of my favourite art has a way of moving me that is inexplicable and I was incredibly humbled, thankful, and awed to start this year with some of my favourite pieces of art.
Next stop was SOHO. Exploring some new stores, finding great new styles and trends that I’m excited to experiment with, meeting some new friends, and having some great Japanese cuisine were combined to be the cherry on top of a fabulous day!
The day couldn’t have been any better and I truly started my New Year off right. I’ve been getting a lot of love from you guys responding to my New Years Resolutions and I’m feeling really positive, happy and upbeat about this year and what it has to bring. Nothing can shake this new found positivity. Each new challenge thrown my way brings new learning opportunities and growth! I don’t know when I’ll be back in NYC but I sure am happy I started my year off here.
