What's next? | Mermaid Stilettos

What's next?

I'm not sure where to begin... 
6 years ago my family told me we were leaving the only place I had lived, the only home I had friends and the only city I loved. 
I was 16.
Cut me some slack, I was young, and at that time NYC was everything. 
I thought my life was over. "Florida?" I thought. Why move to Florida? 
I sobbed. Was angry. And couldn't understand.

I didn't want to go to a new high school, let alone apply to a college in Florida. I didn't understand how kids could drive at 16 when all I knew was taking the subway. What was Publix? Chick-fil-a?
Somehow, someway, I fell in love with Palm Beach, Florida. Fell in love with my new friends. And fell in love with my school, Florida State University. 
Fast forward 6 years and I'm on a cruise to Bermuda after completing a 2-month Internship in NYC at Tory Burch corporate, graduated from college today (I missed my ceremony but live streamed it)!
I don't say this to show off, or to brag. There's nothing to brag about, because I didn't, I couldn't have, done any of this without someone greater orchestrating the pieces of my life. I'm genuinely writing this to look back and see how incredible God is. He works things out. He always knows what's best.

As 2016 approached I wasn't sure what the future held after graduation. 
Should I move to NYC right away?
Get a job there?
What about traveling for a few months?
 Maybe live abroad?

After months of preparation, research, and studying I am confident and excited to share that I will be returning to Florida State Unversity to complete my Masters in Buisness!
It was a long process, hours of studying, back and forths, and I was so torn. I was eager to move to NYC upon graduation, but something was pushing me to continue my education.
 I can't wait to join this program, continue blogging, and explore entrepreneurial business ideas during this next year.

If you're thinking "What's next?" and feel lost like I was, be comforted in knowing someone greater has it covered. 

Keep in touch, follow along, reach out, ask questions....
I'd love to help you, just like people have helped me. We can't go it alone !
