My best friend, who I believe is the most beautiful dancer in the world, took a leap of faith and moved to New York City this past August to pursue a career in dance. I can’t begin to put into words how proud I am of Emily for moving out there and going for her dream. Too many of us do not do what truly makes us happy because we are afraid. Emily is an inspiration to me because she does not let fear hold her back from trying each day to do what she loves.
It was an amazing five days spent with her. We explored the city, experienced the magical Christmas spirit that fills New York City in December, and won $40 tickets to see Cats on Broadway, which, by far, was the best part of the trip for us both.
Scratch that. The best part of the trip was spending time with each other. Catching up and talking about our hopes and fears. I am so grateful for Emily and that she let me crash her new life in NYC for a few days.
