Big city dreams often invade the thoughts of lots of kids from small towns. Somehow the allure of the city lights, and the promise of a new future draws millions of twenty somethings to the US's big cities every year.
Here are 5 signs that you totally belong in a big city!
1. You tend to walk faster than like...everyone you know.
Big cities are all about hustle. And you will do amazing things if you've got it. You pretty much can't make it in New York without a forward stride and some swagger in your walk. If you're that slow person on the subway stairs, you're gonna get run over. But if you're leading the pack, you most definitely will thrive in a big city.
2. Your huge dreams often always seem far-fetched to others, but perfect for you.
Big city folks tend to have even bigger dreams, because those who love metropolises and lots of people are almost always thinking forward. If you were that kid who always wanted to fly to the moon or be a rock star, your dream just might come true in a city that can hold all of your big ideas.
3. You ultimately don't care what coast you're on.
The two big cities people often dream of are New York and Los Angeles. I've lived in both places, and I can tell you...different vibes, but the same goal. Nearly everyone who moves to these places is a dreamer. And if you can make it on either coast, you can definitely make it anywhere else.
4. You're a hard worker, and you're willing to do whatever it takes to make it.
Big cities are a lot of work. It's harder to get around, there are more people, and you get more tired easily. If you're meant for a big city, you have to know the value of working hard. NYC is definitely not for lazy people. Neither is LA or anywhere else, Paris, London? No way. People who make it in big cities ultimately have a lot of character and can make it on their own. Which leads me to...
5. You're independent.
If you're not ready to leave it all behind and make a new path for yourself, big cities probably aren't for you. There is nothing wrong with taking time to find yourself, and big cities aren't for the faint of heart. You must be prepared for all of the challenges in order to reap the rewards.
Ultimately when you move to a big city, you'll end up spending a lot more time with yourself, making your own path and doing your own thing. So make sure that person is ready!
