A month I wrote a very positive blog post. It was full of high hopes and motivation. It was just a month ago. Now, as I reread the post, I can't help but laugh. I am in a completely different mindset today. Things that I thought were going to work out, haven't. Money that I thought was there, isn't. And support that I once had is gone.
I feel my projects have been abandoned not only by the community, but by Peace Corps as well.
But I think this is a good thing. Plunging forward into things that I consider important only supports my forever growing ego. Instead, I think this is God's, Allah's, Jah's, the Universe's or whatever you want to call it's way of telling me to slow down, look around. Realize that this isn't about me. What works out, will work out. The rest I have no control over.
So here's to drinking a cold beer, enjoying my house on the Atlantic and letting the exterior worries go. Cheers.
Sure, you can come live with me. But I think that where ever you go, you will always miss your mom.--Mitzie Lindsey
