Count down

“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.” ~Pema Chodron

At the moment I am going through a bit of a rough patch, which makes this all feel so much more overwhelming. I have so much left to do, and unfortunately it doesn’t feel like the program I am going through is very supportive while we are still here in the states. Luckily, I have found that one of the girls in the same program is actually friends with a good friend of mine, so it has been great connecting with her, and we are helping each other prepare for this adventure.

So, there is 27 days left of work, 30 days until I catch my flight, and 32 days until I am finally in Cambodia. I am so excited/nervous/restless to finally get there. I have all of my shots taken care of (my arms are so sore!), I’ll be purchasing my plane ticket this week, and this Saturday is my big fundraising party. Although I just want to skip all of this and get there already, I know that it will all pass by in a blur.

Almost there!
