I still can’t believe that I’m in Iraq. It’s crazy.
Today we’re changing hotels. The one we’re in now is more expensive than others in the area, but nothing special for the money. The heater in our room still doesn’t work, so I’ll move anywhere that has a working heater
Update: New room, new heater!
I found this (lengthy) quote in a book I’m reading. It’s called the E-Myth by Michael Gerber. You may have heard of it. This quote is pretty awesome
“…your comfort zone has been the false mask you put on when you were [little], because it was safe when your spirit was not. Your comfort zone has been the curtain you have placed in front of your face and through which you view the world. Your comfort zone has been the tight cozy planet on which you have lived, knowing all the placed to hide because it’s so small. Your comfort zone has seized you before … and it can seize you again, when you’re least prepared for it, because it knows what it means to you. Because it knows how much you want to be comfortable. Because it knows what price you are willing to pay for the comfort of being in control. The ultimate price, your life.
“So…if this new path, if living with your spirit, means anything to you at all, if you truly care about it, then guard it with your life. Because comfort overtakes us all when we’re least prepared for it. Comfort makes cowards of us all.”
