Changing of the Seasons

I last wrote about how mundane things seemed, but after talking with some people, I think I had some sort of reverse culture shock or something going on. Things here back home have been busier than ever. It's just a different type of busy. I went from being in a city, that if it were a country, it would be the 5th largest country in the world (yes you read that right!), back home in Traverse City where this busy is filled with work, kids, recovery, and just trying to live life to my fullest. This kind of busy is also filled with responsibilities, opportunities, stress, and sometimes doing things that you're not comfortable doing or doing things with little or no notice or planning

The changing of the seasons is definitely here in full effect, works getting busier, kids busy sports and school schedule is off and running, tourists are starting to pop up everywhere, events everywhere, and it's only going to increase tenfold. This year things are a little different for me though, I'm fully aware of what's going on around me and being present in the moment, and quite frankly actually enjoying striking up random conversations with people walking down the street or at restaurant with people here to enjoy what beautiful Traverse City has to offer. I'd like to think that is one amazing thing I learned from my trip, is that sometimes the best conversations come from the most unlikely sources.


I'm so blessed with the life recovery has given me in every aspect of my life. I recently surpassed a year and I've had so much happen in this last year, it's hard to believe that this is only just the beginning. In this year I've met so many miraculous people and witnessed their lives continuing to improve. I can only wait and be patient and see what this life brings next, but until then I will continue just being present day by day, living life on life's terms, and enjoying my time here while I still can.
