Time to take stock - my life has changed in ways that at first perhaps didn't seem to be in a better direction. It takes a little more time to see that indeed things are better than ever.
I moved away from the big city after having my apartment burglarized not once but twice. Honestly, I don't know what took me so long. My family had been bugging me for years to move "home" to the country, where I was born and raised. I was perfectly happy in the city...until urban crime made me a victim too and I'd had enough.
So I'm back in the bosom of my family in the country. The job I found doesn't pay as well as what I had, but the cost of living is a lot less. Life moves at a slower, simpler pace. I can finally take time to smell the flowers.
And the best part? I'm reconnecting with my family, especially my mom. We actually went fishing together yesterday! She had a blast and I learned a valuable lesson about time wasted on what I used to consider priorities.
My priorities have changed. And that's changed my whole attitude. I am better than ever!
