but I'm glad to be back.
i was dreading the flight. i was dreading the inconvenience of city life, once again.
BUT as I headed down my usual route to go grocery shopping today, i found myself in one of those moments where you just stop and take everything in, and just feel. Feel warmth. Feel happy. Feel home. and most importantly, feel overwhelmed with gratitude. and I noticed things that have been here all along, but never really appreciated. the hustle and bustle. the parks. the fountains. the smells. the cool moist air surrounding me. the cute old italians. THE INCONVENIENCE OF CITY LIFE...only this time, i liked it. and i guess its not so inconvenient, after all. it's just...different. and being a person that has never been able to accept change very well, its hard for me to admit that different isn't bad. it's just different. and maybe different can be good. and yes, it has taken me almost a year to get to this point, but i think i can finally stop saying i hate boston, and start calling it my home.
