I have been trying my very darndest to love where we are living right now. But the truth of the matter is….of all the places I have ever lived, this is my absolute least favorite of them all. Hands down. Without a doubt. No contest.
I do love the friends I have made here, though. They are so precious to me, and I enjoy every minute that I am able to spend with them! In those moments I am able to forget how much living in the city bothers me. People truly do make a place much more bearable.
(which is why I am now even MORE insanely grateful for my husband, because we’re joined at the hip when it comes to gallivanting about the globe, and he makes any place 1000% more tolerable for me than it would be if he were not there. He always knows how to make me smile and break even the worst of my bad moods : )
One of the other things I do to keep my thinking positive, is to look for beautiful things all around me. Even if this general area isn’t my cup of tea, there are still gorgeous creations all around!
Also, my birthday is this week! I love birthdays. I am pretty sure this one will be grand.
Anyway. I’m going to continue being happy now, and MAD PROPS to anyone who can deal with big city livin’. I used to think of myself as a city person and fantasize about living in high-rise apartments and riding the bus everywhere and walking to the corner grocery store and loving it….but it turns out, I am actually more of a country bumpkin. Who knew?!
