"The reason people get homesick is because they are constantly comparing what they could have to what they do have. I was the poster man-child for this for a long time. I had a tendency to remove myself from the present and set back down again in a situation more favorable…Then, when I was forced to attend to current matters, they were never as ideal as the ones I invented. It made me resent what I had and where I was. That’s not a good way to live. Certainly I miss a lot about what I leave behind but stewing in my britches isn’t going to bring it to me. I think its important to appreciate where you are and if your surroundings are too overwhelming, reach out to those select few who make you truly happy or try going inward. Focus on yourself."
