Random Musings

I am by no means a planner – but when I travel, I have this tendency to try and fit as much as I possibly can into each day simply for the sake of “traveling”. I line up in ridiculously long lines in sweltering heat because Google told me that the food will be worth the wait. I scramble over mounds of tourists to get the perfect photo and stress out if I don’t make the last ride because now I’ve missed out on what could have been the most amazing thing I ever saw.

Truth is, it rarely is the best thing I’ve ever eaten or the most incredible thing I ever saw. I crawl out of the tiny little restaurant that I waited 2.5 hours to get into and told myself that I should’ve gone to McDonalds instead.

Often times, it seems like we’re in such a hurry. I’m guilty of this as well. If there’s one thing I learn from living in NYC for so long, it is to walk FAST and forget to take notice of what I’m walking by.

Today, I am sitting inside my hotel room looking at the crowded masses of pedestrians through the rain and it’s actually quite nice to do nothing at all 🙂 It’s a little reminder that I need to slow down, enjoy life in small steps, and be present.
