I have returned but still learning

Post by Still Searching » Wed Sep 04, 2013 9:33 pm

Hello all,

I have been away for quite some time, getting to know my true self and studying the Five Precepts.
Recently, I have had some very unfortunate events.. I have lost a very close friend, I am having financial trouble and had a fall out with a relative of mine.
I was in and out of hospital due to personal issues with my mental health.

All in all, I am trying to see the positive sides of everything that has happened. I realized that I have survived through all of the misfortune so in some aspect, I must be strong and can walk on whatever the outcome of my situations are.

Hopefully soon someday I will reach Nirvana.

It's lovely to see you all again! :group:

I forgot to mention, I lost my home, too! :cry:
But I am currently in a temporary accommodation and looking for a new flat so I have a place to stay and am safe and sound. :bow:

I hope you all had a lovely, wonderful summer! :D
Winter is soon upon us so let's hear what's happened and changed so for, what has everyone been upto? :smile:
