This past week I spent quite a bit of time down in the "city" areas near my mountain town and it was very easy for me to come to the conclusion that I will never, ever be a city girl. There is no appeal to it, especially as I get older.
Cities overwhelm me.
Traffic overwhelms me.
The "cool" scene.
These are things that I could never imagine having to deal with all the time. I respect those who thrive off of the insanity that a city life brings. For me, anxiety swells in my heart and gnawing sensation takes over my gut and I just know I don't belong.
I enjoy the quiet.
The fresh mountain air.
Having a view without a massive concrete structure in my way.
My small town vibe, even if I feel it is still too big at times.
I thrive here. I love here and I could not imagine being anywhere but in a small town. I can't say that I always love my small town, but it definitely is a better fit for me. When I think about other places I would love to live they are all small town areas with houses a ways away from town.
Maybe that makes a country girl more than a small town girl? I am not quite sure, but anywhere small I end up better have Amazon Prime shipping.
