Every time we head to the countryside, I find myself torn apart between city and country life. There are certain conveniences from city life, which I would miss if we lived in the country.
On the other hand, there are also things about country life that I would surely miss if we lived in the city.
Sunsets seem so much closer out in the country. The sound of birds constantly chirping and a cool, gentle breeze make me long to live in the country.
My husband (who grew up in this lovely countryside) tells me that it’s safe and amazing to walk through the grass barefoot. We definitely cannot do this pleasantly or very safely in Florida.
The feel of the slightly damp, cushiony grass under my bare feet, make me long to live in the country.
The scent of soft evergreen pines that are just starting to bud, make me long to live in the country.
Fields of bright yellow wildflowers accompanied with the faint buzzing of bees, make me want to live in the country.
Freshly planted rows of corn as far as the eye can see, make me want to live in the country.
Can you tell I’m torn by two beautiful, different worlds? The city girl in me wonders if life in the country is all it’s cracked up to be. My practical side starts questioning about jobs, shopping, conveniences, city water and other city things.
Yet every time we visit the countryside, I begin to wonder if life in the city is all it’s cracked up to be. My dreamer side starts wondering if we can’t just make country life happen if we want it badly enough.
Are you a city or countryside person?
