On Coming Home

My trip to Florida is over! I’m back home in chilly Rochester and back to my normal life. I’m not too happy about it either.

There’s a certain feeling of coming home after a trip. It’s like you’ve left a part of you where you were, but you’re returning to who you were before you left. Life picks up where you left off and there’s barely a moment to reflect.

Something happens between the time you leave your vacation place to the time you touch down in your hometown. I’ve always thought plane travel felt like time travel. It’s almost like you are transported to the past, before you left, and your trip never actually happened. Though you keep traveling forward with your life, your mindset adapts and returns to its ways of the past. It’s amazing how our minds are a reflection of our environment. It goes to show that you should surround yourself with positivity and an environment that gives you a calm and balanced mindset.

Even though I’m back in that working and writing all the time mindset, I still want to pay tribute to the trip I just had in this blog. I didn’t take too many photos, but I’ll share the ones I did.
