Tis the first Monday of April already and here in North Carolina, the April showers have begun… unfortunately I will not be around to see the May flowers but to be honest- I’m lying when I say unfortunately.
I cannot wait to go home and spend time with my friends and family. It’s a rare thing that I have the opportunity to do; to go back for one month and live the life that I was living before everything changed. Before I got married and moved across the country and life as I knew it was completely different. I get to move back in with my mom and hang out at my favorite places with my favorite people and live as if I had never left.. for just one month while Blake goes off to finish the last portion of his schooling.
Don’t get me wrong, I love married life. I just didn’t realize how much my life was changing as it was happening. I mean, I guess I realized it but I really didn’t want to think about it because thinking about it was scary. Now, after almost 9 months and a complete realization of how different life was before we moved, I am so thankful for the opportunity to go back and relive the life I had before it all changed. If that makes sense.
Basically, what I’m saying is that you have to appreciate what makes you happy in your life at this exact moment. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from the last 9 months, it’s that being far away from my people for long periods of time is just not okay with me. That is my thing, some people can be adventurers and move away from their friends and families permanently- but that’s just not me. I need my people, my life just isn’t the same without them. So figure out what your thing is, whether it’s a person, a place, or a feeling- live your life according to what/who you love!
