Breathe..and reboot..

Good Evening my amazing reader!

I figured since its been a while since I posted something, I should get on it. I've been back and forth lately; toying with different blog ideas and have finally come up with one.  I took a trip back home today (for Easter with the fandamily..) and its truly amazing how a single trip back home can really ground you again...

Life is funny and strange sometimes and can throw a true bag of shit, warranted or not. In the last week, I've been thrown a LARGE bag of this natural compost! All details aside, it was amazing how this short day trip really brought my mind back down to earth and gave me a clear head. I'm not sure whether its the clean country air, or the fact that its so amazingly silent and you can actually HEAR your own thoughts, as opposed to fire trucks. 

It has been at least 10 years since I walked around that little town, and it was just the same as I left it. We took a walk to my old junior-high/high school and it was as if nothing had changed. It was a humbling experience and reminded me of the young, innocent girl I used to be. The girl with BIG dreams; who couldn't wait to get the HELL out of that place. Now sometimes, all I want is that life back..

Being back there truly made me remember the person I once was. In the words of Miranda Lambert "Out here, its like I'm someone else, I thought that maybe I could find myself..". Truer words have never been I love that song..ha! In conclusion my friend, sometimes it takes a step back in time to remember what you truly want out of this life and who you once were; don't let the harshness of a big city/different town take away that once, innocent, young smile with a head full of BIG dreams.

Love, Laura xoxo
