I recently took a trip back out to California and it dawned on me that folks there seem to be consistently in overdrive.
Don’t get me wrong, I Love California. Born, raised, wed and raised my own child there, but it has been nice to live away from the hustle and bustle. Everyone is always tapped in to something and always in such a rush.
Cars zoom in and out of traffic lanes, people push past you to get in line for coffee, airport terminals are crammed with people, it has become a constantly moving and sensory overload environment if you are not in it everyday.
Small bites nowadays. I can take small bites. I love my home state but I also like being less rushed.
