It’s funny how things work out. I just got back from a trip to LA and everytime I go there, I come back to NYC thinking I may be more of a west coast gal then an east coast one. This trip was no exception. Also, while I was there, I connected with someone who got me thinking about my life path, my destiny – you know, all that good LA-ish type stuff… Kidding, but seriously, this person did get me thinking deeper than my NYC brain usually thinks, but hey, I also had a 5 hour flight to sit through… 🙂
Anyway, I remembered (or rather reminded myself) that I love writing and would start doing again and I also told myself (see last post) that I would start doing more things to make a name for myself. Well call it fate or call it a coincidence but the very next day I get contacted by CNN to appear on their CNN Newsroom show. I also got a tweet from someone at CNN who told me he “lives for my blog” which pretty much made my life since I didn’t think anyone except my parents and my loyal Newport buddies actually read this thing!
Someone once told me that if you leave things in the universe’s hands they will work themselves out and I’m pretty sure that’s true. There are highs and lows, ups and downs, setbacks, surprises, and things to work out, but at least tonight, I’m giving my crazy overactive, overanalyzing, ball of stress, plan-making mind a rest and having a lil’ faith…
Here’s a clip from my network television debut. It was only about 3 minutes so I figure I got at least another 12 minutes of fame left in this lifetime! 🙂
Comments welcome…and yes, I know I say “I know” a lot! Rookie mistake, I’ll do better next time!

I really liked the part about leaving things up to the universe – sometimes I feel that way and other times I loose faith in it. I am just glad to see someone has the same mind set as me and that it is working! Also, I look forward to reading more blog posts. I too want to write a book and keep planning to start a blog, but havent quite hit the publish buttone yet. So way to go and keep writing!
Thanks so much for the comment Jenny! I look forward to reading your blog 🙂
