A Sign That Led Me to the Country

Living in the country is something I’ve always wanted to experience, so when the opportunity was presented to me I knew I had to take it. However, letting my mind lead over my heart I started to second guess my decision and turned to my guides for a sign, and in this case I literally got a sign!

It was on a Sunday afternoon, driving home from the beach, I went to make a left turn towards my house but last minute was compelled to turn right towards my recently deceased grandfather’s home. It would be the first time I’d been there since his passing and although I was at peace with his death, I certainly wasn’t at peace with loosing my childhood home. But, I knew the time would come where I’d have to let go and say goodbye.

I walked around the yard, slowly making my way down to the lake where we often spent our time. It's no wonder my dreams often take place here! I had remembered a sign that I had painted for my grampy when I was younger and thought I’d go check it out.

Right next to the sign I had painted was another sign that had been hanging there for years, yet I don’t think I've ever read it before. That sign read “a day in the country is worth a month in town.” Typically I wouldn’t be drawn to a sign with such a cliche quote but this time was different because I knew that this sign was for me. It was in that moment that I knew moving to the country was exactly what my mind, body and soul desperately needed.

It’s been a long year of major life transitions but moving to the country has been the least stressful of them all. Life in the country has been relaxing, inspiring, physically demanding, and at times a little spooky! I’ve only been here for a month but it feels like I’ve lived here for many.

Thank you, Grampy, for always watching over us!
