“There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you’d better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you’ll never understand what it’s saying.” –Sarah Dessen
Today’s been one of those days that’s hard to put into words. I’ve honestly been sitting here, staring at my screen on and off for over 45 minutes. Not that it’s a bad thing… by no means!
It’s been a day filled with contentment, a rarer experience for me, and one I wish had a stronger presence in my life. And the thing is, it’s not impossible by any means.
#3) Sister Time and Time Well Spent
I had an incredible day with my sister. We caught up with each other’s lives over brunch, went window shopping downtown, stopped in at a tea shop, and ended the day with “Music and Lyrics”. It hard to describe how wonderful it is that our relationship is so close now, and how hard we have worked to reach this point when it wasn’t always sunshine and rainbows growing up. I treasure her dearly and can’t imagine what I would do without her love and support. Being able to come see her has really cleared my mind.
Part of it comes from getting out of town an exploring a new side to the ‘big city’ of Bozeman. Part of it is finally being able to enjoy the company of other people my age! Getting out and about, seeing new things, trying new things… all have done wonders to my current outlook.
Now the trick will be to carry this through into the weeks ahead; not an easy challenge, but the more I learn day by day, the more some of this weekend positivity can become a daily habit. No time like the present to kickstart a consistent outlook, right?
So forgive me if my post today is brief and a little scattered. I had little time to focus on writing, but I have no regrets. It’s better to be out living your life than always sitting on the sidelines. It’s about time I had a lively weekend, and I thank my sister for encouraging me to be my crazy, talkative, whimsical self all day long.
