Ready to pursue my big dream ZURICH - LOS ANGELES

Wow wow wow! I waited for this moment for almost 10 months. And the day has almost arrived. This is pure craziness. Somehow it seems I counted down every single month (October, November, December, then finally new year.....) but now that I look back, time kind of flew by. Kind of.

But first - PACKING! I hate it. Hate it hate it hate it, especially in such a case. In a few days I’m about to take off. Leaving my country for a new future in Los Angeles (well, hopefully ;) ) How do you pack? With this limited amount of space? Yeah, I’m a woman, a typical woman - a lot of clothes, tons of shoes and bags etc, great. But let’s just face it, whatever, LOL.

But before I’m leaving I would just like to share some thoughts with you, because this…is a huge step for me.

I believe in destiny. That no matter how bad things seem, that you’re where you’re supposed to be. There’s a reason WHY. And all of the negative things that have happened to you, they make you into the person you are today.
The last 10months were intense (break up of a long term relationship, moving 4 times,.....). I learned a lot about life and especially about MYSELF. I had my ups and I had my downs. But whether ups or downs...who was always there was my family, and my friends!I don't know where I would be without them. I had soo many ups and that's thanks to my wonderful and crazy people haha ;-). Those last 10months make me appreciate them even more and that's what I'm trying to say; nothing beats family and real friends - good people, real people, sincere people, people you can trust and rely on.
They gave me so much love and energy, good conversations, great laughter, sooo much fun, awesome times and unforgettable moments. Thank you thank you thank you! <3 :) So. Important -> Surround yourself with the right kind of people.
I'd like to point out one sentense I read in a goodbye letter to me: "good friends know all your stories, best friends were part of it". This sentense almost made me cry, because if you think of's nothing but the truth.
So, from all the negative experience I’ve made in my life, I learned from them and they made me the strong, independent and ambitious person I am today. And they make me appreciating all the good and great moments in life even more.
I wake up HEALTHY every morning and this is NOT for granted (the people who know me know what I’m talking about). And this is exactly why I try to make the most out of it and follow and pursue my dreams.
In that case it’s going to L.A. and trying to make my way out there. I don’t know where I’m going to be in 6 months from now, I simply don’t know it. And that’s also the exciting part of it :D
I will try it and just having trust in my gut. Where ever I might be in 6, 12 or 18’s part of my journey.

Where’s an end, there’s a new start :)

I’ve been asked by a lot of people if I’m not very scared to leave my country, my family and friends? And that it takes a lot of courage?
YES IT DOES! But if you want something so bad – you go for it! And having fears and being scared or nervous is a part of it and I guess just normal.
Yes I am scared, yes I am nervous, especially because I am a very realistic person, but I really try to not let overweight those feelings. I try to stay as realistic as possible yes. But it’s also important that the good vibes, the good energy and a positive attitude take lead. Right?

As I said, I have faith and will make my way, somehow or other :)
I'm blessed with so many things in my life,
I'm a veeery happy girl :)

So what to say now?
Bring it on!!!
I am ready!
Bye bye Switzerland (for now)...................

Love, Steffi
