2 years is a long time away from home, lets be honest even one month is a long time away from home. You will run into challenges, things will happen. Staying strong and positive might seem impossible, but DO NOT forget that you have your support system in the Peace Corps, but you also have amazing family and friends at home. I am on my one month here in Indonesia, well almost and I have had to call on my friends at home to help keep me strong. For that I want to say THANK YOU, for being so amazing and helping give me strength when I could not find it, and reminding me that I am not one to give up. It has been tough for me to find my place here so far, I actually haven't found it yet. I took a moment today and stepped back to look at how I am living my life, and I know that I am not being myself just yet. I've gone through a tough week, but I know that I can count on these smiling faces to help get me through the day. I am thankful for each and every one of the people that I have met along the way and have had the honor of calling my friend. I love you all and miss you! I know I am not down the street or even in the States, but I am a facetime, phone call, or message away!
Just some of the amazing people that I get to call my friends :) I love you all though, even if you are not in this picture! ♥
