Hello

When I first arrived in NYC I felt so inspired by everything around me that I started to write a post one evening to express my feelings. However, I never finished it. I went back and read it the other day and it still describes perfectly how New York makes me feel. I wanted to share it with you all even though I never completed it. Maybe it's good I never finished it. That means my journey there is far from over. 

-New York City makes me feel like I can be anyone I want.
-It makes me feel very alive 
    Because I am constantly seeing the raw emotions of so many people 
    I see fear, anger, sadness, and happiness through the lives of others
    It makes me more a tune to my own emotions
-New York has made me feel like I make a difference 
    Instead of feeling smaller 
    I feel bigger
    I feel like the things I do make a difference more than ever
    A kind smile is more appreciated
    The dollar into a cup is valued greater
    A seat given up is remembered
    And passed onto the next
-It isn't what I expected you know 
   I thought I would be overwhelmed 
   Consumed
   This city that is bigger than anything I've ever experienced
   But the opposite has happened
-New York City makes me feel like I belong

With much love, Lauren.
