Subway Directions From A Life Coach

Mets Stadium: See the 7 train through to the end of the line. Even if you don’t make it to the stadium, you will feel accomplished for having seen a project through to the end.

The Highline: The L to 8th Avenue, or C/E to 23rd Street, or the 7 to Hudson Yards. No choice is easy, and no matter what you decide, you will have to walk a few avenues alone.

Times Square: Sometimes it’s just as helpful to learn what you don’t want to do.

Bushwick: Take the L to Morgan Avenue. You deserve to indulge your curiosities.

MoMa: It already closed at 5:30, but nobody can accept or reject your lived experiences but yourself. Never forget that you are your own biggest critic.

Katz’s Delicatessen: Take the F to 2nd Avenue, and don’t worry about how other people experience a sandwich. Real life is not like the movies.

Williamsburg: Perhaps you are fixated on the idea of something, rather than the thing itself? Have you thought about what it’s actually like day-to-day?

Central Park: Any train you take is good, so long as you just pick one. You’ll feel much better once you do.

Empire State Building: I can only show you the elevator door. You’re the one that has to walk through it. Otherwise, you’re taking the stairs.

Chinatown: Take the B or D to Grand Street.

Madison Square Garden: The only way left to go from Penn Station is up.

Statue of Liberty: Don’t be afraid to follow the crowd. Instead of swimming there, take the ferry.

Broadway: Live your truth.
