It’s funny how city people don’t understand the County life. But it’s also funny how a city person falls in love with a country person. Men especially, they love how fun, free, and spiritual country women are.
I grew up in the country on 10 acres, I remember how wild and free I was. It’s like an untamed lion protecting her young. So much passion and no fear. NO fear of anything. Nature calls to us! It is where our hearts feel most at home.
We like being away from the chaos of the world we now know. We don’t have many friends and aren’t afraid to express the truth but we protect our feelings and hide emotions. We are better off outside and not stuck in 4 walls or amongst a large group of people.
Nothing is better then feeling free. Yet a city person wants to be in the middle of chaos and large groups and a lot of loud noise. They work best in fast pace environments and working with a large amount of people. Once they are in a slow pace environment, in silence and no one around to speak to really. It’s almost like they go mad. It drives them crazy. How is that??
You love a country girl but hate the lifestyle she lives?? You want to move her to the city, where you know she doesn’t belong. And, she refuses.. what do you do then? If you truly love her then you adjust to her lifestlye, after all you can go the city anytime you want.
My husband did just that. He is from San Diego, California and I grew up in linn creek, MO a small town of 700 people and a lot of wooded area and 10 acres of land. I’ve never spent much time anywhere and he has seen many places. He fell in love with my outgoing, not afraid of anything, free and passionate spirit. He changed his whole lifestlye to stay by my side. However, he often complains about it being to quite or he is bored and that there is nothing to do in this town. Whice is true, especially in this day and age. Our little town is dying, we don’t get much action around here.
I’ve learned over the years that you can’t hold a person down and make them change. They have to want that change. I’ve also learned from becoming a wife and having three toddlers that a country life is not so great as an adult. Being in a small quite town doesn’t provide you with much expansion to grow. We won’t be rich and famous and powerful. We are hardly noticed and have many struggles.
We all go through life changes, we are all different. We weren’t placed on this earth to be the same or to be perfect. We were placed here to survive that’s it. It’s up to us how we survive and who we do it with. So think about it… where does your heart lie, are you doing what makes you happy or what makes your spouse happy?
Find a happy medium in every aspect of your life no matter the situation. Rekindle love and happiness. Love responsibility but freely. Take chances and make changes. Never live the same day twice. Your simply not meant too.
My changes have started, it’s time to get my husband home where he belongs and it’s time to give my babies a better chance at life than I’ve had. It’s time to stand up and do what’s right for me but also for them too. When I was growing up my 10 acres was my home and my heart and now my family is where my heart lies. As long as I’m with them I feel free and wild still. I feel at home.
So, what do you need to change?
Let’s open a new chapter and Make those changes. It’s never too late!
Find who you really are and be that you!
