On Living In A Small Town
As a teenager, I wanted to run away and live in a busy city somewhere. As an adult, I can't really picture that for myself anymore. I've done it, and it wasn't what I thought it would be, and I've fallen in love with small towns ever since. Nothing really seems to beat being close to nature and having fairly quiet days. You can actually see stars at night, and nothing beats fresh air during Spring and Fall. I love to leave the windows open all day, and I don't have to worry about smog or dirt or loud traffic sounds wafting into my space. (Is this becoming slightly passive aggressive?)
Small towns are not without faults. Being a pretty far drive from everything is irritating at times, though online shopping certainly helps. When your friends move closer to cities, you don't see each other as much, because it's kind of impractical. But if you move the negative aspect aside, there's something really freeing and fresh about living in a small town, and it's kind of like magic sometimes. It's very inspiring.
Of course, I can't really predict what the future may hold, and maybe I'll live in a city again one day. Who knows? Sometimes I genuinely think I will end up in a city again. You can never really predict the future, but you can enjoy the now.
