It's so strange coming back to town and visiting with friends who still view me as the person I was two years ago. Did these two years pass by so quickly that they forgot to grow up themselves? It's amazing what moving away and making friends by yourself will do to you. I had coffee with a new friend that I wish I had gotten to know years ago tonight. We talked about all the changes we've gone through, learning experiences and what we hope for in the future. He inspired me to continue on this adventure and I inspired him to not be discouraged and keep looking forward. You gotta love those conversations... where you have the ability to encourage and lift someone's spirit just by a simple conversation.

I'm so glad tonight happened because, like I said in the previous post, I miss my Nashville friends. You guys inspired me... Nashville is a town of hopeful dreams and talent. So my point is... you'll find inspiring people everywhere. Tonight reminded me of that.

I'm determined to find these people in Cincinnati and not get stuck with old friends that don't care/see how much I've changed. Why would I want to be friends with people who aren't trying to bring the best out of me? I'd rather be alone than be friends with girls that keep reminding me of how I used to be.

People need to learn how to let go and move on. I feel like I went back in time and a few people forgot to mature.

This is a really harsh post... I know. I just get a little fired up when the 10 year old I nanny acts more mature than a 20 year old young adult.

I knew Cincinnati was gonna bring something out of me. It's really just a desire to see change.

How can I make this happen?

by choosing it everyday.

but that is what home is like. often times it's easier and more safe to stay the way you've always been. with the people you've always been with. a bit of a comfort zone.

i seen it when i go home during the holidays, and drop in on a high school reunion-ish party. the funny thing, is that many people have changed individually, but when you get them all together, they revert to the old ways of interacting.

we miss you here too dear! SEE YOU FRIDAY. :-)
