Today I went back to the place I was born. This is the first time I’ve visited there since I was two years old when we left to live in a new town. You know that Miranda Lambert song “The house that built me” we were literally in the car outside the house I lived in for the first two years of my life. Creepy I KNOW RIGHT.
It was weird, my mum had recently visited their and had asked us if we would like to go back. So after 19 years we thought why the hell not?!
It was odd.. we walked through the town and we went to the world’s best pub in Suffolk. It got me thinking. The life we could have had there. It is definitely more country life than where we live now, the house is different to where we live, the location is more rural and there is a lot of trees. It was everything I would have wanted. But would we have been happy?
I think about my life now. The town I live in, the people I know and the people I used to know. As well as the School and University I went to. Would it have been different, would things that went wrong/right have been different? I guess I will never know.
I get the song now. “They say you can’t go home again”. Life fell the way it did for a reason. Do I wish some things were different?? Of course, but I know I can change them especially this next year.
This last year has been amazing and looking back hasn’t made me regret one thing.
Fun fact – I can now complete a Rubik’s cube in 3 minutes and 31 seconds what did you do this Christmas break? Haha
