Being Blessed – Gina Thompson

October 17, 2013

I realized that the things I
thought were important before I left home…I find myself not even
missing nor caring about. Things such as social networking or texting,
as well as always having my phone on me, afraid I will miss something.
Truth is that once
I get to wifi and I sit here catching up on twitter or Instagram, I have
missed nothing. And the fact that I have not been on my phone here
allowed me to realize that I can indeed live without it.

What people here in Greece as well as in many other countries go through
on a day to day basis does not even compare to the stresses or thoughts
I have in my head that I worry about. My worries are minuscule, and
being on this trip has allowed me to understand
how truly blessed I am.
