I Was Truly Challenged When... By Jana Ross I was truly challenged when I left my friends and boyfriend behind in my absolute favorite city and moved to Los Angeles last year. I wanted to step outside my comfort zone and experience a different lifestyle. I didn’t know many people, lived alone, and didn’t have a job. I was miserable and for the first time since I was in elementary school, I felt like I was starting over. I had to create routine out of chaos, find comfort in the little things, and put myself out there time and time again. Even though I decided to move back to Boston, I’m proud of myself for trying something scary and coming out of it with so much clarity about where I was meant to be.
