It is funny how much having a goal that you are working towards helps to focus you; then again it may just be me. I guess I am just a goal oriented person, or at least I am now.
I don’t mind the cold that much anymore, I do know how to handle it. It is interesting that we humans can suffer and put up with a great deal, but we seek meaning in everything.
If we are suffering and going through hardships, we want to know that there is a reason behind it . . . that we are suffering for a reason. I am not claiming to be a martyr or anything like that.
It is just that I at least have a reason why I am freezing, not only this winter but upcoming winters as well. I am freezing my butt off for freedom, you may chuckle at that, but it is the truth, at least for me.
I still may meet that special lady and we may settle down on a nice piece of land somewhere. It is true that that may happen soon (*stifles laughter*) but for now, I am working towards owning nothing to anyone.
It has been a long time since I could say that, and I look forward to the time when I can say that again. With that in mind, these nights don’t seem all that cold, in fact they’re getting that much warmer each day.
