“It’s a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same. You realize what’s changed, is you.” – Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button screenplay
I made my way to San Diego this weekend and let me tell you it has been really rough. I mean, leaving 20 to 30 degree bone chilling weather, where I was bundled and snuggled up tight, to sit on a patio in sunny Southern California, drinking coffee and enjoying fresh oranges from a tree only 10 feet from my table, gee, it’s tough to handle. I’ll try though, I’m definitely giving it my best shot. Funny thing when one comes home, the roles of the past sneak back all too easily. I am a competent woman, strong and determined, pushing to succeed in all that I do, but as the youngest of three strong determined women in our family, I begin to blend and start to lose myself a bit.
In past times, this coming home and all it entailed, bothered me. I pushed hard to be seen and heard, constantly competing for every scrap of attention I could muster. But this trip home is different. I guess I have aged and mellowed over time. I realize, I am enjoying the opportunity to sit back and just be. It has finally sunk in, I have nothing to prove. This trip is going to be awesome! Gingered Date Breakfast Bars are gluten free and bring a new level of deliciousness to a quick on the go breakfast or snack at anytime of day.
