My Sweet Escape
My reasons for going on this life-changing adventure are simple and complex. I want to get to know myself and learn from others in the world. I want to expand my cultural perspective and deepen my capacity to be human. I want to live in the moment and change for the future. I know it will not be easy, but I am ready. Building up to the trip, I haven't been overly thinking about it. I am nervous, excited, anxious, and everything else right now. My heart feels flooded with emotions, good and not so good. So to avoid over analyzing like I usually do...I am just going with it. I don't want to be pre-occupied with thoughts of what it is going to be like. What it IS like while I am there is what is important to me. I hope that all of my reasons for going are fulfilled. I believe they will be plus many more. I hope to make new friends, connections, and memories that last a life time. I hope to cherish every second while I am there. I hope to be challenged but to take the challenges as opportunities to learn. This trip will be my sweet escape. An escape from my mind into a place of new perspective, growth, and valuable tools for my future.
