Are you Ready?

Are you ready?

         I honestly think I have been asked this questions in the past two weeks five times... A day. So I figured its the perfect topic for a blog post. As you can imagine there is a lot going through my mind right now. So many emotions I can't fully process them all, which if I am honest I'm not at a point to be ready to process them. So I am doing my best to process them all. 

         To be real, it's weird to think that in so few days I'm going to be on a plane heading toward this new adventure, my next season in life. Although, every time I think about it, REALLY think about it, I'm on the verge of tears trying to process everything that is happening, trying to wrap my head around the overwhelming feelings of nerves, excitement, fear, and the beginning of sorrow thinking about all the people I'm going to miss. 

         So let's get back to the question at hand. Am I ready? Probably not. I mean I am so jazzed about this journey. I can't wait to live in Uganda for the next two years, being able to do what I love in a place that I love, with people, and a culture that I love. In this part I am beyond ready. Am I packed? No. I have thought about packing but I haven't actually done anything in order for me to get packed. That is what gives me the most anxiety. Thinking about forgetting something important. So in this part I am not ready. I'm also not ready to leave my amazing family and friends for the next two years. 

         So am I ready? No. No I am not. But in 4 days I will be packed. In 4 days I will get on that plane and fly to D.C ready or not. This is the path that Jesus has paved for me so I know it's right, just praying that I will be ready when the time comes.

         Ready or not Uganda here I come. I know it's not going to be easy, but it will be worth it. I'm joining the Peace Corps and coming to teach you. 


  1. Good luck, Chantelle! You will do awesome things and they are blessed to have you join them for the next two years.
