Small towns ~ love them or hate them they most generally are all the same. I like walking into an establishment I haven’t been in for probably a few years to have my truck tires aligned and the gentlemen met me at the door and took my keys without even asking my name ~ he just knew.
I feel unless you’re causing your name to be known in unflattering light why would you hate a small town? I love that people “hate it here” but NEVER LEAVE. I’ve left and came back on two difference occasions. I missed HOME. I like to travel but I always like coming home just as much.
I’m trying to teach Miss M that home is what you make it. No, there isn’t a lot to do here. That’s why I am in so many things. To give back and to create. Small towns can be as exciting or as boring as you make them. I choose to try and create excitement. I’ve learned too that people can complain there isn’t anything to do and then you create something to do and they still don’t come. I can give you something to do but I’m not going to drag you there or beg you to come.
The small town he said she said and how fast rumors spread is all YOU make it to be. If you don’t get involved, start or create drama then there won’t be anything to discuss in a negative light now will there? Fly above all the drama! Be the better guy or gal! Watch how peaceful your life becomes!
I’m going to sit here by the toasty glow of the space heater and wait for my truck to be finished with its alignment.
Have a blessed day!
