This week for Feature Friday I chose a very sweet southern belle and her blog. I try to make sure that I read every post that she puts up. As I have been strongly considering moving to do something new somewhere else, I went on her blog. On January 29th just as the year wa ending she wrote a post titled Before You Go. It immensely spoke to me. I am from a city where people say that they dream of coming to. It is the place that if you make it here you can make it anywhere.
Well, I am tired of working so hard to make it here. I have come pretty far in my life here. But there is so much more work to do. There is just a feeling of stuck. It is a feeling that I am going in a circle. So, as I work to make things better…different. I think that I can start it in a new place.
Any who. The last time that I moved I was so emotionally distraught that I did not get to see the things that I loved about this city. Not that it would have changed my leaving, but it would have made it a happier leaving than it was.
Before I go again, I will make sure that I take the time to look around at the things that I love. Acknowledge them. And see them as something that is highly important and not to be forgotten or taken advantage of. One day I will be back. It may just be to visit, but I will be back.
