A Tourist In My City

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

Sometimes we don’t always have the resources to fly, drive or buy tickets,
And that’s okay
For, there is so much that can be explored right outside of your door

With a little perspective and change of attitude, you can be a tourist in your own city
Try going somewhere you’ve never been before
Try re-exploring one of your old stomping grounds
to either marvel at its changes or find comfort in the known.
Maybe you’ve driven past a familiar building many times but,
have you ever walked up to or went inside of it?
What does it feel like when you graze your hand against the walls? What cracks can you find? Every blemish on any beauty comes with a story.
Has the water always been this beautiful?
Have you tried walking a few miles South, is it the same color or a little different?
Try something new,
Or something you haven’t done in a while.
It’ll help keep your mind free and
change your perspective if even just the slightest.
And isn’t that what life’s all about anyway?
