It has been an interesting experience indeed; being without a residence! Liberating, tiresome, frustrating, exhilarating, and sometimes depressingly lonely. I love my life, I miss my children, and I miss sleeping on a mattress. Simplicity and simplifing your life is fundamental to surviving the vagabond existence. The biggest risk factor I have found in living at a shelter is the influence that others at the shelter can have upon you; if you allow it. I am generally a quiet person and I try to be careful who I associate with. Folks can bring you down even if you are having a great day. My advice for today is to surround yourself with positive influences. Seek out likeminded individuals, those with positive goals and good morals. Your day will go much smoother! Remember that life is a gift, and give goodness to those around you and it will return back to you. God Bless. And thank you for reading.
