Ain’t that the truth? And sometimes you don’t really even appreciate it until you leave your home and then come back.
For example, the last like week at least, I’ve had a sore throat. Literally, as soon as I got back, I wasn’t feeling the sore throat anymore. Well, not as badly. I just swallowed and I feel it a bit. But, not like it was!
Is it because subconsciously, my body is happy to be home?! I mean, the climate and the cleanliness are awesome here.
It was like a shift coming home.
It also feels weird to be home. Like, I haven’t been here in 6 months!! I almost feel a bit of a culture shock, in a way. It’s hard to explain.
But, I do love my city. I’m glad to be back. Day 1 has been great.
I had a friend pick me up from the airport and then we hung out. She was questioning me about all of the drama with the group that I’m a part of (and that she use to be a part of). I told her my perspective and we chatted about it.
I honestly think it’s nice to be away from that for a bit too. Because it has been quite stressful too. I don’t think I’ve really realized it.
There is also something about living away from home. Where I currently live is quite polluted, lots of cars and people and my living space is not mine really.
I think these things all add up. And while I don’t actually have a “home” of my own anymore, I feel like my time with my family is “home”.
This is going to be a wonderful 9 days. xo
