Well, my week in Honduras has come to end, and I’m back in America. It was one of the best weeks of my life, and I’m sad that it’s over. Adjusting back to the first world lifestyle has been pretty tough thus far. And, honestly, I’m not sure I’ll ever go back to the way I was before. I feel like a completely different person. I’ve learned more about God’s love this past week, than I have my whole life, and I’m so thankful to have been blessed enough to experience it.
Now that I’m back in America, I’m finding it difficult to go back to speaking English, and eating American food. My appetite is almost nonexistent now. And, it almost hurts to see so much stuff. Just stuff. Businesses, roads, highways, tall buildings, things, things, and more things. Materialism and consumerism seems so different to me now than it did before. Comfort isn’t important to me anymore. It bugs me almost.
Overall, the experience has given me a better appreciation for life, people and the beauty of this earth. I am eager to explore it even more in the years to come.
