We are finally in our provinces. Some say it feels like prison, how they control us. Moments into orientation I began to think such, but began to view the beauty surrounding us.
Although it is dead and quiet at our location, we have rolling hills of green behind the campus and much better air than the city. Our situation may not be ideal, but we cannot control it, only grasp the opportunity to grow and appreciate what we do have. It's not that bad.
For now, I'm learning a lesson in patience and peace. I felt ready weeks ago.
Until then, may our hearts and minds be open to the new experiences and opportunies.
THIS IS WHY I CAME, to love people and to extend my reach beyond the city borders. Is it how I am living? Sitting in church again woke me up to this realization, yet I still need to fully wake up to my surroundings and learn to love where I am. I hear the same message. It either a psychological reinforcement or the repetition of individuals when lacking subject material to speak about. Only possibly it is one of the fundamental ideas which we should base our life. The latter is much more praiseworthy.
I'm sure I can justify it now, this journey I take. It was clear then and it becomes more clear now.
Challenge me to wake up even more and to remember why I am here.
I do apologize for those that have not seen my true heart and motivations. However, apologies are useless.
It is only the change of heart and actions that reflect our inner souls.
