January 2019 Story

As with every start of the year, I joined countless others in making resolutions and reflecting on the past, present and future. I have felt as if I was in an endless cycle of sameness for years. I knew I wanted to break out, but I was my own worst enemy at that point.

My yoga journey. — Something changed in me in 2019. I decided to begin a yoga journey in January, and I have stuck with it throughout the month and into February. Believe it or not, it has completely changed my outlook on my life and has eased my mind. It has flowed through every portion of my life, and has been lifting me up to heights I could not believe. I am excited to witness the benefits build and overflow my spirit.

My New York trip. — My life paused for three days, as my mom and I embarked on a trip to NYC. I was blessed to experience Harry Potter: A History of Magic at the New York Historical Society Museum & Library, the 9/11 Memorial, Times Square, the Broadway play: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (squeals) and the Mickey: True Original Exhibition.

Here is a little photo diary:

Beforehand, I held the prospects of going to New York to see Cursed Child for a year; my e-tickets were safe and sound. Along the way, we decided to make it an experience — and it really was an exciting, breathtaking one.

Each place holds a special place in my heart. I will now and forever have this connection to NY, from the quiet moments at the 9/11 Memorial and the learning experience at the museum to the fun IG-worthy Mickey exhibit and the truly magical Cursed Child play.

I cannot stress enough: if you are a fan of Harry Potter or just Broadway plays, seeing this is a MUST. You will see the stage light up with magic and see the story of your childhood play out 19 years later.

But, alas, I must #keepthesecrets…

My January was exquisite; the loud, bright moments, but also the secluded, quiet moments — an excellent introduction to the year 2019. I am grasping the concepts of accepting life as it is, building the self up and filling it with things that spark joy (as Marie Kondo would say).
