Life is okay. Not amazing. There still lies an entire week of death (by which I mean finals) ahead of us. But it could be a lot worse. I think I might return to a previous idea.
Now is the winter of our discontent. Now is the end of our unhappiness. Now is the time from which the spring of happiness shall cause the the buds of delight and joy to blossom to their fullest extent. Now we shall cease to feel the inadequacies which we often feel, of ourselves, of our times, of our company and abilities. Now we shall smell the sweetest perfumes of love and of home. Now we shall know what it means to be home.
But it shall not come easy. We will need to be on top of ourselves, and of our company. We will need to understand that there cannot be a single thing without some sacrifice. We will need to keep in mind that winter is cold, and icy, regardless of the winter. We will need to know that life is not life without some suffering. But all is worth risking in the pursuit of going home. And that destination is my goal.
I miss home.
So we march onwards. Thank you. Peace!
…and today’s Daily Gratitude is for my fabulous, amazing mentor Janet, and her husband David, who have been incredibly supportive of everything I’ve done thus far. I know that I wouldn’t be where I am without them. So thank you!
