You And Me

When I first moved to Chicago, I was very careful.

Let me explain.

I was careful with my heart and mind. While I am grounded anyway, I have been known to let my feet off the ground every once in awhile. It's not a bad thing. But I didn't want to be so enchanted, that it would cloud the reality of my surroundings. 

Does that make any sense?

Almost like being on a honeymoon. 

Everything is new and wonderful (most of the time... or it easily becomes wonderful again...)

And then the new feeling goes away. It becomes the mundane. Everything begins to look the same and blah.


I didn't want that to happen with me and Chicago. There is something inside of me that tells me I'm here for the long haul. So, I made a deal right after moving here, that I wouldn't let the new become mundane. Every day I step out of my door, I prayed that God would keep things fresh. That I would see something new. I wanted to remain enchanted with this city. This beautiful, corrupt, wonderful city. 


So far so good.


I'm still so thankful to be here. Each day truly is an adventure. This city is SO huge. I know I haven't even seen half of it.
