I Am In a Time Warp.

Time is a funny thing. Sometimes it flies by and other times it crawls. The fact is, is that time is relative. It really all depends on how you decide to spend it. If you decide to spend your time dwelling on the future or moping about where you are in the present, the time is going to crawl by. Not only that, but you will look back on the time spent looking into the future in regret. That is probably one of the biggest lessons that I have learned on this trip so far. The first few weeks of this trip all I could think about was how much I missed America and how much I couldn’t wait to get home. Looking back now, I see that that time could have been put to so much more use. I could have been using that time to get to know my teammates better, or pouring love into the locals, but instead I kind of wasted it. Not to say that thinking about the future sometimes is a bad thing, in fact sometimes it’s necessary and even beneficial. The problem lies when you start to dwell on it. I realized this about a month in and I wish I had learned it sooner, although I am grateful that I still have 2 more months to go. Now, I have made up my mind to live in the present and to be content with where I am placed at the moment, and I thank God for that. Now, I can sincerely pour all that I have to give to the people and absorb all that they have to teach me as well. I thank God for this opportunity as well as the many people that helped me get here. I thank you for your prayers as I will be praying for all of you as well. I love you all! 🙂
