I've been binge watching season seven of one of my favorite shows, "Once Upon a Time," an ABC show about our most beloved fairy tales in their most twisted forms. The show plays on the love of our childhood heroes, but in their most "unDisney" forms as they search for their real, happy endings.
As I am coming to a close on my time here in Haiti, I have been considering my future in great detail. Everybody keeps asking me what I want to do next. Where do I want to go next? What will I do? How will I continue on? Sometimes the answers seem simple, and sometimes a bit more complicated. I don't think I know exactly what I want, or where I'll go, but I know that I'm not keen on searching for "home" any longer. My favorite line from "Once Upon a Time," is this: "Home isn't a place. It's where your family is."
Your twenty somethings are really important, despite what they tell us. It is critical time where not only do our brains finish developing, but these are the years when we establish who we are and figure out where we want to go. I wish it was that simple of a task, but nothing in life that’s worth it is ever that easy.
