doing the right thing.... - Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing...
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
doing the right thing....
Every once in a while, something happens that reminds you that you are on the right path.

Tonight, I was standing guard on the bases main gate with 3 other people. standing there, i periodically caught sight of helicopters lifting off and heading out (presumably on practice missions). And i was reminded of a similar sight at my last residence in san juan capistrano. I used to watch helicopters heading to and from camp pendleton and wonder why i was not on one of them. I used to wonder how i would like the marines. Wonder why i was sitting in a useless IT job being unhappy. wonder if i would end up a 50 year old bitter man still wondering.

fast forward to today when i looked up at similar helicopters. And a smile crossed my face. a knowing smile, knowing that i had done the right thing. Peace. knowing that this is where i belong.

Knowing that this is where I belong.

Finding inner peace in one of the worlds roughest, toughest military forces.

Glad you've found your place. That isn't an easy thing to do in the world. :)

agreed, it was incredibly hard, a task that almost ended in the ultimate failure. but then it is a moving target isnt it ? the world changes and as a result we must also change in some way.

who are you ?

that you inspire such deep though...
