Perhaps immodest

I’ve had a bit of writers block lately. My key problem is that as I think of what to write about, my mind is drawn to how incredibly awesome my life is. I don’t want to blog about that because when I write it in my head, it just sounds boastful and silly. Since I haven’t been able to figure out a way to avoid that, I’ll just go for it and you can all roll your eyes if you want =)

Reasons my life is awesome:
  1. Family: My wife and kids are great. Wonderful people, and we are happy together. I’m happy to go home to them and I’m so glad my life is all wrapped up with such amazing people.
  2. This country: Lebanon is a wonderful place to be. It’s beautiful, full of life and an elegant churning chaos that can smack you one minute and bring a smile the next. It has flaws to be sure, but what a place!
  3. Time: I get personal language tutoring, a talented cello teacher, a nice gym, more fascinating things than I know what to do with. What’s not to love?
  4. Setting: The Mediterranean Sea is 200 meters from my living room. I love that!
  5. My Job: My job is wonderful. I have a chance to make a difference for the world and financial security for me. That is rare and valuable.
 Anyway, I’ll cut my enthusiasm off here.

I have an awesome life and I am very grateful for it!

  2. Gag. you sound Mormon.

  3. Shhhh!! Have you no respect for the evil eye? We are all deliriously happy we just keep quiet about it! Glad it is all coming together for you.

  4. I think that many people are blessed, but it takes a certain stregth to recognize your abundance and be gratful for it, good job:)
