Tonight is my last night in Columbia for awhile. It feels surreal, exciting and scary all at the same time. It's been a weird day to say the least, and I am looking forward to visiting with my friends this evening. I am reminded to BE PRESENT.
As my hours come to an end here and my journey begins, I cannot help but see all the blessings I have in my life. I almost always focus on the less-than-pleasant aspects of life, but today I am overwhelmingly grateful for the love and support and friendship of so many. I wouldn't be where I am now without each of them. And for that, I thank all of you.
