During the last several weeks I spent quite a bit of time reflecting on who I am as a human being. I thought about my personal goals and so on. At the end of the day I found happiness. Being surrounded by loved ones and...chocolate really made my trip an amazing experience. I worry too much about tomorrow without really thinking about the present day that I am living. As individuals we make choices on how to react to what affects us. Sometimes we lose control and sometimes we take things easy. Personally, I feel that I let those outside effects affect me in a manner that takes too much of my time. I need to just live day by day and enjoy the wonders of life itself. It's easier said than done, but for me, this is something I am going to work on to put in practice. Brazil was a wonderful host. My heart hurts for leaving my family behind as I move on to my "real life" in the U.S. Thank you to everyone who made my visit to Brazil so memorable and enjoyable. Saudades de tudos em casa.....
