It must be in our human nature to always be thinking ahead to the next thing... even if it means we aren't fully present where we are.
While i find many moments to enjoy here, i also find myself thinking about what type of car i'll be able to afford when i get back home, whether i can really pull off buying a home, and what sort of projects i'll be able to do on my own when i buy said home.
Meanwhile i take chicken buses and taxis and live in someone else's home -- which is full of dust from the construction, but still comes with a pool and a housekeeper. Looking ahead... living in the now...
When i do buy said house, i am definitely going to need to be much more of the do-it-yourselfer than i am now -- when i have a housekeeper to do even little chores like taking out the trash. Check out DIY Site UK, where i -- and you -- can get some ideas for DIY projects around the house. I am going to need it!
