We all have that "one". That one place, song, smell, photograph, blanket, memory. That one thing that sets us completely in our element, our happy place, our comfort zone where we are

Too often we get swept away in the rush of it all that we forget about those "one" things because we are too busy with a million others. 

Cars are driving by and people are walking past. There is a cup of coffee on the table, headphones in my ears, and words swirling around my head too fast to keep up with my fingers on the keyboard. This is my form of being content and at peace. This is my "one". This is me

Writing. John Mayer. An oversized sweater. Leaves rustling around outside. Feeling like time is frozen as the city rush sits just on the other side of the window. It's quite refreshing and rebellious to turn your head at what needs to be done and turn your head towards what you want to do. 

Listen to that song that takes you back to your first crush and eat that chocolate chip cookie because it reminds you of baking with your grandma. Snuggle with that one blanket you've had since you were a baby and pull out that photograph of you dancing on the toes of your dad when you were 5 years old. 

Go ahead. Get back to you.
