Often times when I’m writing I think back to my good ole Sex and the City days. Not that I don’t still watch it, I do. But there’s this one scene in the first season where Carrie Bradshaw talks about how she makes money writing her column and posting questions online. Those were the days I could only imagine being half the woman she is. And now look at me, I’m doing the exact same thing.
I’ve recently been invited to join the where I get paid to post questions online. I mean really, does it get any easier than that? I don’t think so. It’s crazy to think that this is my life. I can’t even tell you how grateful I am to have a fulfilling and passionate career that I can wake up every single day and enjoy. So in a sense, I am living out my Carrie Bradshaw fantasy once and for all.
I’ve found myself sitting in a hostel in Indianapolis while on my ongoing journey traveling the east coast. Though this is very Carrie Bradshaw, I still have the ability to open my laptop and work when I want. Which again, is more than most people could ever imagine doing for a living. I’m blessed beyond my wildest imagination.
Now if I could just get to the point where I could afford to live in a gorgeous NYC apartment (Red Bank, for me) by myself. Order Indian food (I know Carrie was into Chinese, but in my case, it’ll be Indian) every night for dinner. And finally get big ( A.K.A Bryan Johnson) to propose to me after all these years, my life would be complete.
You see there are a few differences between me and Carrie Bradshaw. But just as there are some differences there are a lot of similarities between myself and the character that we have all grown to know and love. We’re both writers, we’re both passionate, and we both struggle with love. Today I’m really channeling my inner Carrie.
