Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge at Night

Brooklyn Bridge at Night

In our quest to uncover photo opportunities on our home turf before journeying to Europe next week, Tineey and I decided to take a night stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge into Dumbo. I’ve lived and worked in New York City for four years yet this was my first time walking the Brooklyn Bridge – maybe my third time in Brooklyn ever even (I obviously didn’t get out much). After making it a priority to get out of this work – drink – sleep cycle, I knew that this spot, as cliche as it is, was a must-see, must-photograph destination. No big deal to most native New Yorkers, but there’s a serenity here (especially in the evening) that makes it that much more special.

Walk down past the steps at the end of the bridge once you cross into Brooklyn and take a quick left. You’ll find a charming neighborhood called Dumbo. There’s a street down here where you can see the Empire State Building peek through the Manhattan bridge, aligning perfectly in the middle. You’ve probably seen this shot hundreds of times on Instagram.

Keep walking for a few minutes and you’ll come across the Brooklyn Bridge Park – a sweet little spot perfect for photographs of lower Manhattan. But how does the view compare to that of Jersey City? Compare them here.

How amazing is this night view? Take a few minutes, soak it in, then make the trek out. If you don’t feel like walking back across the bridge, the you can hop on the F train nearby to get back into Manhattan.

Six months ago I was standing here - hot, sweaty, thirsty, hungry, exhausted, bothered by the hoards of people pushing me to get through for their shot inside the #Colosseum. I forgot for a moment where I was and more importantly why I was there.

It's not always easy, but it's most definitely worth it. Live a life that's worth the trouble. ?
I've found that those who work hard are motivated by the people who made sacrifices to provide for them, or the people they need to make sacrifices for. 
You see, that's what makes us different - that's what makes you strong. There are people who have been spoon-fed all their lives and thus have no clue as to what makes them happy. There's no drive. How can money motivate you if you've already got it?

You have no control over how you were born, or how you were raised, but you do have control over your perspective. You'll come to see that everything you think happened to you was actually happening FOR you. ?

So what motivates you?
The older I get the more I realize that nothing will ever go according to your plan. Every time I feel like I'm headed somewhere, I'm knocked into a different direction wondering where the h - ll I'm going next. It just isn't enough to feel completely secure about your future if you're constantly doubting yourself. I have no idea where I'm going to end up or how I'm going to get there, but I'm moving. Slowly, maybe, but with passion, conviction - and with a dream worth more to me than the empty riches of this world. You'll make mistakes and you'll learn from them. You'll think you've failed and realize it was meant to be that way. You'll love and lose, someone or everything all at once.

But at the end of it all, you'll realize that everything will be okay. ?
I don't want to be perfect. I want to be just as I am.

Don't be afraid to walk away from something or someone that holds you back from becoming the person you want to be.

The seasons are changing. So can you. ?
While the rest lay easy, withering away - you're still standing, shining brighter than ever.

Your scars are what makes you beautiful. ?
Allow the world to remind you of how beautiful the life you live can be. ?

Dream with the dreamers and invent things you never knew you had in you. Think with the thinkers and discover ideas that mold who you are. Smile at strangers and make friends that last a life time. Travel with travelers and explore a life beyond your imagination. Love only one and grow old with your best friend. Let these things bring fire to your soul, so when you look back at your life, you'll have no regrets and you can leave this place a little better than when you found it. - @rmdrk

Get out of your head and get out in this world. It's waiting for you.

Last night I joined my sister @amy_marietta to celebrate genuine people & the launch of an amazing skincare brand @rescueskin at the #rescuepopup. It's nights like these that remind me to keep pushing. Hard work pays off. ?
