We leave in a couple of hours and the question that’s been stuck in my head is – why me? Why am I the one who has this opportunity, and a rare one at that? Through this journey to the other side of the world, I hope to find an answer to that question. But for now, at this moment, I have such an open mind as to what this trip will behold. I have no reservations and no expectations that need to be fulfilled for this trip to be a success. The mere fact that I even have the chance to go is…beyond words. I feel so incredibly lucky. So lucky.
My grandparents called me this morning to wish me well and all I could think about was what my grandma used to say to me, “We’re so lucky.”
