hopefully the newbies don’t think I’m crazy

I love that I get to talk with people from all over the world. Meeting people, hearing their stories and their passion gets me excited.

I just got off a Skype call with one part of a couple that is coming to serve for six months. I can’t wait to meet them, and to have new friends just down the street.

I needed that conversation this week, when I was starting to feel like a shell of a person. Where anxiety and stress were beginning to fill and settle in my soul. Each moment of happiness is moving that darkness further from taking root.

 I am dwelling on the happy. Do you hear that anxiety? I AM NOT DWELLING ON YOU.

 (You just caught a glimpse of the crazy. Sorry about that.)

And something else this week that made me breathe, take a moment to evaluate, and push that darkness even further. Click on what you are reading right now. Be prepared, because Shanley of Voye’m just gets me and she might just get you too.

Finding beauty in the desert; don’t sunflowers just scream ‘SMILE AND BE HAPPY” or is that just me?

    you know, i’m pretty sure that glimpse of crazy, is also a glimpse of humanity. and nothing i love more than looking on humanity. keep on keeping on with your joy, my friend.
