Total Bliss in Kisoro, Southwest Uganga

Peace Corps life can be rough. Even when vacationing and hanging out with my best friend, I felt torn about life and what to do with mine. Should I stay in the Peace Corps? Should I go to graduate school? Is it worth it to stay in Ethiopia if I'm unhappy? What about my community? My students? My commitment to stay in here for 27 months? What about my peace of mind?

There are a lot of options, but what do you do when nothing seems right? I've been struggling with these questions and decisions for the greater part of the summer. My mind is always buzzing with questions that have no clear or easy answers, but then Amanda led us on a short hike in Kisoro to watch the sunset and everything flew away.

For a short, golden-light filled time, everything was bliss. It was the most beautiful spot we visited in Uganda and it's moments like these that give me strength. I don't have all the answers to life, in fact right now I feel like I don't have any, but it's OK. It's OK to be struggling and confused. It's OK to try your best and fail every single day. It's OK. No matter what happens, everything is going to be OK.
