 This realization of mine feels like it came at the perfect timeā€¦ just as I am about to embark on a life changing opportunity, interning in Thailand. 

I leave in less than ten hours for my internship in Thailand. (deep breath!) To say that I am excited wouldn’t exactly cover all of my emotions about this trip. I am excited, anxious, happy, nervous, sad, hopeful and cautious. This is my first trip completely on my own so like I stated previous, I’m a little emotionally jumbled. 

I am truly looking forward to all that I will experience while in Thailand. The journey to get to this moment has already been an experience I will never forget. The past few days have been both the most difficult and yet the most enjoyable so far in this journey. I have come to see more clearly what great friends and family I have surrounding and supporting me. To say that I will miss them while I’m away would be an understatement. 

This evening my Dad and I went to a theater performance, called The Meaning of Almost Everything, that put what I wanted out of this trip into light. What I walked away with was the calm understanding that to actually live life is to experience and FEEL everything it has to offer. Both the good and the bad, because truly happiness is nothing without sadness, and love to hate, pain to bliss, calmness to anxiety, etc. Living on one end of the spectrum and trying to avoid the other, is what I have been doing…. And tonight I realized that I cannot and do not want to live like that anymore. I want to experience and feel all this world has to offer, both the positive and the negative.

This realization of mine feels like it came at the perfect time… just as I am about to embark on a life changing opportunity, interning in Thailand. Though I have many emotions about this journey, I now believe I am ready to experience and feel everything that is about to come my way. Wish me luck and I’ll try my best to keep you posted. Love you all, see you in three months.
