11 months still standing :)

I didn't get a chance to blog yesterday partly because I was just too lazy to, and the other part was a reaction to the first, I was too tired from being lazy :)  But it's been 11 months now since I've been in Hawaii, and it has been a good experience to say the least.  I've learned to just make the most of what I have, focus on what I can change and to stay positive in every circumstance.

My job has been fulfilling.  I enjoy the people I work with, and that, in itself, has been a huge blessing.  I'm still working on getting spiritually where I need to be.  Needless to say, however, I'm a decent person so that should count for something. lol.  I absolutely love my life and the people that I have met in the process.  I've still had my share of misfortunes, but everyone has.  And, I think I've gotten past the stage in my life where I cry about my problems.  They will always be there and there's really nothing I can do but solve them, in order to overcome.

Family is doing well.  Ironically, I hardly ever see them.  My mom will be celebrating another birthday this year, which I'm immensely grateful for.  I have watched my mom endure a lot, and I hope I develop that strength of character in years to come.  Each person I've met since I've been home, even those I may not necessarily "click" with, has taught me something.  And, that has made every day a valuable experience.
