I haven’t written as much as I used to. I want to reverse that trend. Lately, I have been in my own mind thinking about the last nine months. I look back trying to understand what happenned, and how not to make the same mistakes I made. I also look forward to the future and I see many great things ahead of me. I think about what makes me, us, happy in this world. I think about living a good life. I think about what I need to do today, becasue my goal requires hard work and concentration.
Life here in Athens is good. I am gaining emotional and physical strength. It is slow going, but going nonetheless. What I have learned today is that everyday matters, everyday has something going on. It may be subtle, but it is something. In the short 6 weeks since I got here I have had many ups and downs, but I still am fighting the good fight. I guess that is all we can do…fight for what we believe in.
Thinking back to all all that I have written. What I have experienced, felt, and thought. Some good, some not so good. In the end it is what we learn from life that truly matters. It is not about the big house, great job. It is about who you love and who loves you. Many times I have forgotten that. I was, and am, disappointed about what I lost. I don’t have those, but I have soo many people that care for me and love me. That counts for a lot.
