"Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not that one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one's ideas, to take a calculated risk- and to act"
- Andre Malraux
I got that quote from one of my favorite blogs.
Husband and I are now in Utah.... a place I said I would NEVER live. We're trying it out here not because I want to but because my husband wants to. Everyday I think of home and wish I were back on my island.
So often my homesick-ness stops me dead in my tracks....
stops me from moving forward....
stops me from doing EVERYTHING...
Sometimes sending me into complete depressed mode.
Sometimes making me utterly bitter;
Longing for HOME.
Even though there are some days that are really good, I still only think of getting home; especially when the high temp here is expected to be 54 degrees today.
We left Alabama in a hurry. I'm glad to have done so. My husband is happy as well. Our journey here has been quite an event. As a couple, we have drawn closer because all we have is each other and a few choice friends along the way. We have made great strides together in terms of personal growth. That has been the upside of this adventure.
It's only been 8-months since I left Hawai'i. The longest I've ever gone without returning to the islands has been 13 and a half months. May the Lord see fit that I return home for good... sometime soon!
Reverting back to the quote that I opened this post with, I am involved in several different projects.... all of which require a huge amount of courage to begin and see through to fruition. God willing... I will be able to successfully pull them off.
