The struggle, as they say, is real. Thank you for sharing this Mitch.
I have to laugh when I remember how glamorous I thought everything was in my early 20’s. A Hotel room all to myself! An expense account! Room Service! The hustle and bustle of the airport and a new city!
Ugh. Don’t get me wrong there were some great moments, and I learned some valuable lessons.

In the end we have to find meaning I whatever path we are rolling down. Comparison is a trap. Get your gold from your expedition and make sure you take interest in what is around you. Glad you made it home.
