Life can change in an instant. Without change, individuals would never understand themselves, the world around them, or grow as citizens of the world.
As a friend told me tonight, "you cannot appreciate a good day without a few bad ones." Another thing that popped into my mind today was something Dr. Bob Ditter told us during our orientation, "There is only a limited amount of happiness in the world, and it shifts from person to person."
Today was my shift. For the past week I have been consumed with an extremely homesick and sad 9 year old girl in my bunk. I felt terribly for her, but as in many cases, there was really nothing I could say or do to make her feel better. Her sadness and homesickness had to run its own course. Today, on my day off from camp, the sadness shifted. She was cheered up and something had upset me.
I am not one to dwell on negative things, and I am not trying to sound corny, but this situation is not negative. Albeit, it is not the most ideal, I know that God has a plan for me and that whatever happens will happen for a reason and will take me down the path God has for me.
I am truly blessed to be where I am now and working with such amazing co-couselors who are supportive and kind and above all to be working with such amazing and adorable kids. Life can only be lived one day at a time.
Live and Love,
Actor. Dancer. Leader.
