A few months ago I took a very big risk moving into NYC Real Estate. "A cut-throat" industry was the description I heard from others time and time again. I've never done things that were safe and I have rarely let others project their fears onto me, let alone alter my decisions. I studied like mad, made voice recordings that implanted these new ideas into my subconscious (no joke), and went off the grid for a few months. I passed my test and started working for Citi Habitats in Gramercy Park.
Cut-throat? I want to laugh at those warnings. Like attracts like and I am definitely not cut-throat. My experience has been exactly the opposite. I'm absolutely in love with my work and all my colleagues. I'm still helping others in an incredibly important way--finding them shelter: a haven to recover from demanding work days, a home to welcome friends, or a nest to begin a new life with their love. The days have been physically demanding and there was very little money in the beginning--well for most of that entire four months to be perfectly honest. For the first time in my life I actually had to rely on others to help me. Funny how I thought I did so much healing over the last few years but I suppose there is always room to further the healing. If growth is needed, then life will surely give you the experiences to make that happen. Humility is a big one.
Love is all around me. Both new and old friends have shown an incredible amount of compassion and I must say it's an incredible feeling to know that others actually want to see me succeed. Although there have been people that have left my life recently, there are a few true gems that have filled this empty space that I've been carrying around for so long. You all know who you are. The last few weeks have been magical. You've come into my life and brought in a wave of kindness, love, and prosperity.
Thank you for caring for me and for simply being there. I will never forget this time.
With great love,Christina
