"there is a problem when we only focus on the past and the future- The present is all we got. We can never go back. We will never actually "be" in the future. We will only be in the now, in the present."
Sometimes we just have to choose to believe that God actually wants us to do something we love, and that he gave us the things we love for a reason, not just as a break from our "real jobs". There are some bible verses in Ecclesiastes that really remind us of the gravity of work and how it's actually really tragic to not enjoy what you do.
I feel that we need to be wary of hardening ourselves to the feelings that are inside of us for a reason. It is important to not allow ourselves to become so jaded to the point where we have to whistle a happy tune to ourselves that everything is going to be okay and that it must be our fault that we aren't okay with where we are.
Ever think about teaching English as a secondary language? This post is all about our experience in being thrust into a teaching job that we were not at all prepared for, but that was hilarious and enjoyable!

We have all fallen into judgmental attitudes to some degree, knowingly and unknowingly. The pointing of the finger happens to all of us, and often, we don't even realize it.

Even when we just feel hurt by another person, we can unknowingly make a judgment about them in our hearts.
Life was quite the rush when we arrived in Thailand with just 100-150usd to our names. Incredibly we were able to find work to sustain us. This adventure looked different as for the first time in our relationship we learned how to be bored together.
