Great post steve, it really hit the spot.
A while back I applied for an amazing workshop with which will really help my career, including meeting the worlds top people in my feild of work. Ive been accepted, but since I applied Ive been abroad twice, I was looking forward to staying in one place for a while. As the trip is coming up, I became sick- I kept saying to myself I really dont want to go, because its so much stress to leave the country again and again. (its happened almost monthly since Janurary2006.) but this morning I awoke with appreatiation, especially after reading your blog.
What I desired so much manifested, and now I better appreciate it! And I do. Thanks.
