In 20 months in Stellenbosch, I have had three addresses. Four, if you count yesterday’s move.
I still have very little, materially speaking. But it is enough. Maybe a couch or a dining table would be nice, but I have enough, to enjoy a simple life.
What I DO have, that was lacking 20 months ago, is peace and serenity – not all the time, not by a long shot – but I do have it more often. And I have the tools to disarm the noise and disquiet that erupt in my head and soul from time to time.
Mostly, what I have now, that I lacked before, is a deep appreciation for the grace that bore out a realization that I DO have a future, and it is wholly defined by my actions and beliefs.
For THAT I am eternally grateful.
