Current Season

Current Season.
             My birthday is coming up, and I’m blessed in the sense that my birthday is the last month of the year because it allows me to have a new outlook on the upcoming year. New year, new me type of energy. I’ve been thinking of my current season. As you know reader, I’ve been home in FL for the past two years, getting the certifications needed to move back overseas. I’ve had plenty of time to reflect on the past years and anticipate the years coming forward.
             It’s very easy for me to get caught up in all the things I don’t have. I’m not living overseas anymore. I’m not married, I’m not even in a relationship, I have friends, but most of them live away… just could always use more than what I currently have. I don’t like this feeling, and I had been in this slump for well over three weeks. I shouldn’t be feeling this way when I’m blessed with so much! I hate when I’m not able to see all the love, blessings, and gifts that are right in my face. I took around my home to get a close look at my life, I always find walking around and admiring the small things around me allow me to see the bigger pictures.
 

Walking around, I caught this photo of the American flag. I get this question all the time: “How could you NOT want to live in the greatest country in the world?!” Usually by fellow American’s and every once in a while, from someone from my current home country. I ask myself all the time how could I not? My family is there, after all, I do love and miss them…. Hmm, I don’t know.

 
I bet my problems are nothing compared to his. 
See the gator? Florida life.
 
The corner of my neighborhood. It was at this moment before I headed home, it hit me. THIS is my current season. Why should I not enjoy it? Who knows when I will be in America again? When will I be able to have quiet moments to myself again? My next seasons could be full of babies, disturbances, interruptions, grief, anything. I need to appreciate where I am now, and how good I have it. I thank God for these moments of realization, and not allow myself to wallow in self-pity.
 
Do better moving into my next year.
