I am certain of one thing about next week–my uncertainty.
I do look forward to meeting faces of the people we are studying for and to hearing the stories we read about lived. And I am still excited, because I know that this once-in-a-lifetime experience will mean so much more to me than a cruise ever would. But my uncertainty is what’s constantly rolling around the back of my mind.
I am uncertain about what the days will bring, what my role will be, if I’ll know the right things to say, who I will connect with, what will resinate with me, and what I will leave with. It makes me nervous, because if I am anything, it’s a planner.
But I also believe that by taking risks, you get even more in return. I believe that when you walk to the edge, you see a beautiful view. And I know that there is joy in the journey. I have faith that my questions will be answered, and that the answers will be worth the wait.
So I am giving in to the uncertainty and letting it take me where it will. Just imagine what I will find when I have such amazing people to walk the journey with, some that I have yet to meet.
“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you, to leave this world better than when you found it.”
