Gratitude Linkup - Week of 6/29/14

One of the best ways to have perspective, for me, is to remember the things I'm grateful for.

Making the Most of My Time Overseas

On the bus today, I looked out the windows and thought about my last decade. What can I say, it was a long bus ride. So, there I was, thinking about my twenties. We moved to Indonesia when I was 23. I thought about how I'm 29 now, and 23 feels like a short and long time ago. In six short/long years, I feel like I'm finally learning how to be a friend. How to reach out.
