Adventure is Out There.

27 Days!

         In twenty-seven days I will beginning an adventure of a lifetime. On November 5th at six in the morning I will be on my way to D.C for a two day staging event. I'm not entirely sure what the staging event entails. All I know is that it's an intense orientation into the Peace Corps. However, this isn't what I want to talk about. I want to talk about how real it feels now that this adventure is so close I can taste. 

         I am so excited, in just four weeks I am going to be on an adventure of a life time. My five year dream of living in Uganda is finally coming true. I look up Peace Corps videos and blogs to see what people's lives are like while in country and I get so giddy about my upcoming move. I get so excited when people ask me what I am up to and I get to tell them about the Peace Corps. You better believe that I bring up the Peace Corps in almost all conversations with people I know and with strangers I can't keep this next adventure to myself and I'm not even sorry about it. 

         With my excitement I am also very nervous. Since getting my ticket the fear of moving is becoming so real that I cannot help but become more and more anxious. I know that the Peace Corps is the right decision for me but I also have to leave my friends and family for two years and that's hard. I have been struggling with the thought a lot. So afraid of loosing friendships because of the distance. Although, I know the most meaningful ones will last. Communication will be hard and not veery often but the friends who care will push. I have a team beside me encouraging me through the fear and I know this is happening. No amount of fear can get in the way because I know that God is going to do big things, teach me amazing things, and fall in love with His creation. God is bigger than my fear and I can't wait to see what He does with me in Uganda. 

         I know I keep talking about my fear and excitement but that is what's real. That is how I feel on a daily basis about this grand adventure and I'm not afraid to share my feelings with all of you. If you want to know more, have any questions, or want me to spend time talking about certain things in my blog please comment.

Goodbye for Now
XOXO, Chantelle
