I’m always going to be the girl who grew up in a small west Texas town. I’ll always feel a thrill when I see the lights and traffic of “the big city.” I hope I never lose my fascination and awe of the places I see.
I still talk to my “Momma” every day, even if it is just a call to tell her I will talk to her tomorrow.
My life has become a whirlwind of adventures and wandering. I still need a home base. For now I want it to be at home with my family.
This does not mean I am done exploring or I am wanting to settle down into the monotony of a regular life. No, I love this new life of mine. I am stronger and more confident. I am excited about the future. I am going to continue roaming around and finding humanity.
There was a time I thought I was on a quest for self-improvement. I was wrong. It was self-actualization I needed. I think I may have managed to find me. I like her.
