In The Middle of the Ocean

Today I write from the middle of the ocean.

My time on land was far too short, but when the seas call, I cannot help but answer. I am uncertain as to what my future posts will look like, in terms of format, because I will have to post via email.

I would be lying if I said I was excited to be on the waters again. I haven’t been home long, and I have significant medical concerns that have yet to be addressed in the past year. I’m afraid they’ll only get worse the longer I wait.

But…

It is what it is, and this is what I do.

While I may not be thrilled with the current state of affairs, there is still so much I look forward to accomplishing during this time away. I have set for myself unrealistic goals. Understanding their unrealistic nature allows me to be content if they go unfinished by time I return to dry land. They will be for me distractions and therapy to keep occupied any empty space in the journey.

I hope that this new adventure, however brief it may be, will be an opportunity for personal growth and improvement.

Until next we meet, may we continue to write as if our lives depended on it.
