10 Life Changing Moments

Recently, I was checking out People magazine. So random, I know. There was an article with Matthew McConaughey where he shared 10 life changing moments. It got me to thinking about my own life. I started to think about those moments that completely turned my life upside down.  There have definitely been MORE than 10. But I’ll start there.

10 moments

Watching “A Different World”  – This show was life changing for me. Every week, I got a preview into college life.  I loved it. I knew I was going to college but watching  “A Different World” made me know that college life was something I wanted. I couldn’t wait to get there.

Moving to Los Angeles – I was the same girl who always said I never even wanted to visit California because “the ground shakes”. After one visit, I was sold and moved here a few months later.

Moving to Los Angeles unemployed – Once I decided I would move to Los Angeles, I quit my job in local television and was determined to find a job once I arrived. Looking back, I know that was CRAZY! I’m happy it paid off though!

Alumni mixer – Once I settled in to life in Los Angeles, I got involved in my college alumni chapter. I attended  a mixer at a restaurant one February night and met the man who would become my husband.

my lifeBirth of my son – Becoming a mom was a total life changing moment. There were all these questions of what do I do? How does this go?

Birth of my daughter – Going from a mom of one to two was a big deal. I wasn’t sure how I was going to split my heart in two. I didn’t want one child to get the short end of the stick. I was so nervous about being able to be enough for them both.

Paris – When my 30th birthday was approaching, I decided I wanted to do something big. I felt like it was a monumental age and I wanted to celebrate. So, I decided I wanted to turn 30 in Paris. My then boyfriend/now husband and I went together. That’s where he decided to pop the question. I am now completely obsessed with all things Parisian.

I do – Getting married was a life changer for all the reasons that it’s supposed to be. Before my husband, I couldn’t really see myself as a wife. I’d thought about it but with him I could SEE it.

Getting a job at the Style Network – Before moving here, I knew where I wanted to work. The Style Network. It was all about everything I loved. Fashion, aspirational living and beauty. I felt like it was a perfect fit. It took me two years of being in L.A. for that to become reality. It was a fabulous as I’d imagined it would be.

Oprah “Life You Want” weekend – My media pass was approved and I’ll be headed there this weekend. Everyone I know who’s been have only had two words to say “life changing”. I am so looking forward to it. I’ll be taking notes so I can tell you all about it!

What moments have completely changed your life?

    Wow! What an awesome way to reflect on your life! It will take me awhile to ponder over mine but one of them would definitely when I started my blog. 🙂 Thank you for sharing!

    The birth of my daughter definitely changed my life. It’s so much different now, and in a positive way.

    I definitely started thinking about my life changing moments. It’s funny that you may only realize they were life changing as you reflect back on them.

    wow, this is really cool. You have had some amazing experiences. That was really brave to move to LA without a job! That is great that it all worked out though. I have always wanted to work in that type of field. Congrats to you!!

    Moving from N.Y. to Maryland was the beginning of just about all of my life changing moments. When I moved here I met my husband, got married, and gave birth to our two children.

    I moved country with 800€ in my bank account and no job lined up. I’m still struggling six months later, but somehow have survived this long, which is a bit baffling to think sometimes.

    I literally just told my husband that for m 40th birthday, I wanted to celebrate in Paris! I’m glad you had the opportunity to bring in your 30th in style like that. I say go big or go home.

    What a great idea for a blog post – I loved reading through all of your moments! 🙂 I can totally relate – we just had our 2nd baby boy in October and I was so worried about how I could possibly love another child so much, but you just DO! You grow another heart, I swear <3
