Us Small Town Hicks are on to Somethin'
If I learned one thing about living in a small town, it's that every once in a while, you have to step back and just enjoy life. Whether it's waking up and spending a few minutes looking out your window, taking a walk that has no point other than walking, calling an old friend just to chat, or flipping through an old photo album, everyone needs to take some time to realize what life is all about.
No, it isn't about money, it isn't about your job, and it isn't about impressing people. Life is just that: life. It's about living. And sometimes you need to step back and think about that. So instead of getting angry over your lack of checks off your to-do list, just step back and think of the reason there are no checks in those boxes. Chances are, you were probably doing something a lot more fun than said task. Am I right?
So stop worrying about your next deadline, or your shrinking bank account for a little while, and just go out and live a little!
Keep it classy. Keep it country.
