So I still get a ton of DM’s & texts asking me if I’m still working. Here’s the answer.
The journey that led me to this decision. My crazy journey being the combination of being a basketball player’s fiancé and the insane career resume I’ve built for myself from working at the top sneaker company in the world for over the past 5 years.
I would say my life is pretty exciting to say the least. My weeks usually consisted of traveling to Houston last season to visit Kyle, travel to an NBA city to cheer on the Rockets or fly to one of our key cities for a work trip.
As “glamorous” as it seems from the outside, and don’t get me wrong I count my blessings everyday, it’s not always as perfect as it seems..IT’S FREAKING HARD!
Trying to grow in my career that I love but missing my boyfriend everyday, trying to gain respect as female in an egotistical male dominated industry, thirsty girls in every city trying to work their way in on that professional athlete wag lifestyle, jealousy from people you thought were your closest friends, having to be selective of who you can trust in a self absorbed industry, ROOKIE girlfriend life, dealing with fake people everyday who you know want to see you fail, long distance, the thought of having to choose either my career or the love of my life…the list goes on.
Hold up, what did she say?…
The thought of having to choose either my career or the love of my life.
So there you have it, I CHOSE LOVE.
And it was fu*king hard okay?!? The hardest decision I’ve had to make in my life to this point. But damn, when I sat and thought day in and day out of what truly makes me happy, it was Kyle. He is my best friend and the love of my life. We have so much fun together and I was starting to feel like I was missing out on big moments in his life and career which I would just kick myself for missing. I tried my hardest to be at all the important things, I did a great job at that, but I just was so depressed not being there for him during milestone moments. He needs me & I need him. We have been doing long distance for long enough, 4 & a half years to be exact. So we decided to start the next chapter of our lives..finally together. And it’s in FREAKING GREECE!!! How the hell could I turn that down?
Cool news is, I’ve got something up my sleeve to my next move. I’ll keep you guys posted once it becomes official.
Not gonna lie, the 4.2 carat ring he put on my finger helped make my decision too :O
As sad as I was to leave campus, I mean cried A LOT lol, I’m very happy with my decision! THIS IS NOT THE END OF CHARDAY, this is just the beginning.
