I am content; that is a blessing greater than riches; and he to whom that is given need ask no more.
I’m joining in with a group of writers for Five Minute Friday where we’re given a prompt (this week it’s fly) and write for five minutes about it.
I’ve flown to conferences, classes, other countries and other continents. Flying was once part of my regular Monday morning commute. I’ve flown for business, and taken long flights to vacation destinations. I’ve flown alone (often) and in the company of others.
But I don’t fly much anymore.
Some, at this stage of life, like to travel. They seek new destinations, journeying to see and experience the many wonders this beautiful world has to offer.
Me, I’m an unapologetic homebody.
There’s something to be said for putting down roots and deeply inhabiting a place. There’s something about finding contentment here and now, and letting go of a hunger for new, and better, and different. There’s something about crafting a life you don’t have to take a vacation from.
Right here and right now.
