Countdown to a Normal Life

There is a file on my laptop desktop named “Countdown to a Normal Life.” It’s been ticking off the days during my current tour in Iraq. I know I should just ignore the calendar and let time go… but I can’t. I look at that stupid file every day.

Why is it so hard for me to just be content with my current situation? Why can I not decide to let the past go, refrain from worrying about the future, and focus on the present?
