Why do you want to move to Los Angeles?
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 NIV
I always get a nasty look when I say I want to move to L.A. The first thing people ask is if I know the cost of living there. To answer that never ending question, yes I have. That’s literally all I’ve been focused on for a year and a half. And if we really want to get deep, I started off 4 years ago wanting to move to San Diego which is more expensive than L.A. So now that we got that ridiculous inquiry out of the way, let’s dive in.
I’m not quite sure what people thought was going to happen after going to the city of my dreams for interviews. Maybe no one had the belief that I’d ever really move because I’ve been talking about it for years. Well, sometimes it takes years for your dreams to come to reality. That PUSH came about this year in April after a break up with someone I shouldn’t have even been with. Seeing what I didn’t want made me hungry for what I did want. I knew it was time to get serious.
It’s a difficult journey to have such a big dream. It’s even more difficult when people transfer their unbelief onto you. The good thing about me is that I’m determined and no one can make me want something different. I thought about other places and other big cities, but I kept coming back to L.A. If something occupies your mind that heavy, you need to explore it more. I was tired of teasing myself via Pinterest.
I get that a lot of people wrote me off. I get that most thought I’d talk about California and never actually go. I get that my family and friends may question my sanity at times. But I know that my life has a purpose that’s bigger than myself. I realized that if I’m to be the light, I need a HUGE platform. What better place to shine and display the light of God than in Hollywood? I’m going to make it because I realize it’s my dream, but more importantly it’s His Will. So I pray that you all keep me in your prayers and stay supportive during this transition to greatness.
