Putting It Together
I think about where I want to end up. I know, I know. It's about the journey. But I think about how to put together
to end up in the place I want to be.
Right now, it's still a rural setting. I really do not care for the city - so many people, noise, pollution, overpriced living. People don't seem to care of each other anymore. It's feels like too much. Maybe, I just need a break. But deep down, I know I will always be a country girl.
Me, an old house, a kayak, and hopefully, a family who wants to live in the country too! I feel like I've written about this before but I am constantly going over in my head how it's all going to end up.
Of course, now I have to conjure a career that will enable me to move to the country.
I think the country means moving home to Maine at some point. But other days, my soul longs for the English countryside.
I lived in England for a year and it's my happy place (that and Prince Edward Island). It's been so long since I have been back (fingers crossed for next year). I read Artemis' gorgeous blog to live, vicariously, a rustic, charming British life.
So, as usual, no conclusions. Only ideas. If I had a nickel for every life idea of mine, I could finally afford a kayak and a car to transport said kayak.
Do you think about where you want to end up and how to put it all together to reach that point?
