Post image for Saying Goodbye and Looking Forward

Drastic change came knocking on my door recently; I will soon be leaving New York City — my home for over a year — to return to California. Read more »

I moved to Colorado from NYC several years ago, but I always go back. NYC will always feel like home in some ways...and often it's even more intense and beautiful due to the time I've been away.

This is beautifully written. I've been moving around a lot recently, and when I left the place I grew to feel most at home last year I found little ways to bring pieces of it with me. Sand from my favourite beach is in a vial on my desk; fallen bark from my favourite birch trees adorns my headboard. Best of luck on your new adventures! Julie // Northern Rustication

dear SARAH, or anyone out there facing depression: try art and / or music therapy. give yourself the time you need to see progress. depression is not something, that goes by when you're not actively working on it. take a heart and remember, sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. all that matters is what you gain from it. the worst experiences in life could be your greatest resources one day. i wish you all the best.

Thank you so much for this post. I was recently diagnosed with depression and anxiety, and although different than having an accident while surfing, it felt like a setback similar to this. You wrote down what I've been trying to figure out on my own, and you have no idea how much it's helped me get through today! I feel a lot more confident going forward.

Beautifully inspiring...looking to the sky keeps your heart open, helps you stand tall and as they say 'keep your chin up'-don't hang your head low and never ever give up.

I volunteered at a little permaculture farm this summer that used the practice of a "Bell of Mindfulness." At random times throughout the day, someone would ring a bell, and everyone would take three minutes just to become present again. I often find myself wishing for a "Bell of Mindfulness" in everyday life, but we can always create our own special moments if we remember.

This is such a great post! I was in NYC last summer and it was absolutely amazing! My favourite was walking along the Chelsea High Line and exploring Greewnich Village. It was such a nice contrast from Times Sqaure which I have now grown to dislike! I'm sorry. Eunice Caroline
