Being In A Moment.

It's been a while. That seems to be a repetitive beginning to all of my posts. It's sad thinking about all of the time and motivation I had years ago when I first began my Blog. I feel like I have neglected it so much and I've lost touch with so many of you. I hope to get back there soon, honestly

A few weeks ago I jumped (or walked) on a plane and headed out to Illinois to spend time with some of my favorite people. They just happen to be family, and great family I should add. I haven't seen them in years and to be with them, spend time, talk, listen, enjoy every moment is something I'll keep and hold onto for the rest of my life. 

We learn a lot about life and ourselves when we're placed in a new environment and around genuine people. I think that way each day when I'm somewhere new. I try to embrace every moment and absorb what others are telling me and truly listen as they speak. I learned more about my family being with them. I was able to live their life in a week and see how they spend their days. I loved it there. I loved being with them. 

Everything is really peaceful out there, it's quiet. You get to intersections and every which way looks the same. I really loved that. I think it was because when we're placed in a moment and look at the different roads we can choose to take they each look different, so already you have this vision in your mind of which is more appealing. Which direction should I go as one looks nicer than the other. Then we contemplate constantly if we're making the right choice. 

When you find yourself at a four-way intersection and each road looks the same. That moment seems less stressful because you really can't worry about the decision at hand. There is no signs letting you know this is wrong. I truly loved being in that moment.
