The future *is* exciting.

We watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty last night, it’s a beautiful movie and it stirred everything in me that likes to travel, take ground and seek adventure. The world is stunning and there is so much more to see.

And maybe the most beautiful thing is to get into the place where all you see are possibilities and opportunities, not the barriers and obstacles that stand in the way. I love to think this way, planning where and when and how- worrying about the details later on. But also to take a step back from the day to day of working with the poor in Romania, which often feels like hitting your head against a brick wall. Stepping away from the canvas and remembering again that I’m already in this story, that I made the choice to be here and I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be living. Gaining the perspective to see the progress made in the last six or seven months. to see past the daily frustrations. The future is exciting, but so is the now.
