The Next Step

In the past year I’ve spent a great deal of time thinking about what my next steps in life will be. Where do I want to go? What do I want to be doing ten years from now? While I’ve always been a proponent for living life in the present and taking one thing at a time, I do think it’s important to use the present as a way to build up to a future goal.

One of my goals this year was to shift my world a bit; I wanted to step out of my comfort zone. After living in Boston for more than five years, I unknowingly became too comfortable. I don’t think it’s a bad thing to be comfortable, but for me, I wasn’t ready to feel like that. I’ve always loved the sense of adventure that change brings. Trying new things, going to new places… they change you. They change how you dress, how you live, how you work. New experiences are far and above my favorite way to find inspiration.

So I made a change; I moved to New York! It’s only been two months, but I’ve already seen the benefits. I feel alive again, and excited for all the new possibilities this city can bring. There are a million new places to explore, and new people to meet. The creative energy here is like none I’ve ever experienced. I have a feeling this adventure will be a great one…

To celebrate life’s next steps, I’ve teamed up with UGG Australia. We’ll be choosing a few of your declarations to bring to life through illustration via social media over the next few weeks. Post a declaration of your next step using the hashtag #TheNextStep via twitter, instagram, and facebook.

#TheNextStep Life is more literal than we realize. When we ask for what we want, the universe finds a way to give it to us. Taking the next step towards a balanced life. – Maegan Tintari


#TheNextStep to spend more time traveling the world. – Jenni Radosevich

So tell me, what’s #TheNextStep in your life?
