This is Peanut Butter Brickle. We have traveled to so many places that I don’t remember exactly how many. But I do remember my favorite places.
And I remember my favorite memories. And all of these places and memories are in a special place in my heart.
Not because these places helped me to forget my problems. But because they were a part of my every day life.
You see, I don’t want an oasis from my life. I want my life to be an oasis.
The last few days we have been staying somewhere that definitely looks nice.
But it hasn’t felt like places in my heart. We haven’t felt at ease and the fireworks have been loud. We’ve had random knocks on the door and other things.
No. Even though other people called it an oasis from the very loud road noise and sirens, I wondered why someone would choose an oasis to overlook things around them and only concentrate on the immediate place where their feet were planted.
Today, we move to another vacation rental until the weekend. We have many things going on with that Italy place and our little house there. We have many things to sort out. And it’s just a very hard time right now for the persons. But. I know once we get to that Italy place and our little house, we will be thankful.
Because instead of trying to find peace by roaming we will find peace by the sea. Peace to make a home of our own. Our little oasis with be our life. Our life will be an oasis.
Don’t ignore the problems around you by isolating yourself.
See what is around you and how it’s affecting you. And if you’re hiding from it, it’s time to move on.
