bee yourself

i am finding the longer that i am in canada
the less canadian i feel
it's a little frustrating not only to me but i am sure to our friends

for one:
i don't like to plan
i like things to unfold
but people here are busy so planning is essential

for another:
i don't like to shop
i go into those huge big stores 
whether it is a grocery store or a department store
and i am overwhelmed
i end up buying nothing

i still like to walk by the sea though
that's good
i still like to sit beside a friend and chat the afternoon away
i still like to smile at strangers
although they don't smile back as much

bee yourself
that is a message to myself
and maybe you.

  1. You've got the important things down pat--not wanting to shop or plan things to the final minute, that's not so important in the grand scheme of life. This summer is teaching me to relax, nothing is better than being with friends and family and the great outdoors!
