This past weekend, I took some time to travel out of the madness that is NYC and drove 45 minutes out to the village of Nyack for some personal me time with my dear Yasmeen.  Sometimes, I feel like the longer I stay in the city, the more anxious and impatient I become.  I don't know if New York is making me hard, or if this change is just a part of what life throws at you in the journey of growing up.  But sometimes, I just need to go to a quiet place to think and mend and heal.  

I was invited to stay at the newly opened Time Nyack Hotel and it was a short but much needed getaway.  It's hard to believe that this beautiful space was transformed from a former plastic factory.  There's the obvious juxtaposition between the tough industrial design against the chic artistic elements, but I think it shows a harmonic blend between the old and the new.  Transformation is a key element in my life right now.  No matter who chooses to leave or who chooses to stay, I need to keep evolving.  Keep growing.  And keep transforming.  To become the best version of me.  But transformation requires patience.  It needs time.  And time is a strange thing.  Sometimes it heals relationships, other times it makes you forget.  So do we heal by forgetting or do we do learn to forget after we heal? 

No matter how bad some things seem to be, I always try to find comfort in believing that eventually, everything will be okay.  After two nights away, I've allowed myself to let some of my worries go.  Perhaps, sometimes the best cure for a tired heart is to escape.  Just for a little while.
