I learned so much. My eyes were opened and I am renewed, which is the best feeling. Not only is is a good feeling (because those come and go), but it is good. It is good for me, and for the people around me.
That gives me the joy kind of happiness.
the best part about leaving is just that. The leaving. Sure to be followed by hard work, adventure, and of course the coming home.
And after all is said and done that is the best part. :)
