Moving to Ecuador is a Big Step

Feelings and Emotions

I’m feeling a little nervous today. I guess the reality is hitting me that I only have one more day before I leave. What will I encounter? Am I doing the right thing? Am I out of my mind?

I just have to trust that everything is going to be alright because there really isn’t any turning back now. I just want you all to know that moving to a foreign country alone for three months has an emotional commitment attached to it.

I am looking forward to this next stage in my life. After all, I love travelling and I love the beach, so what more could I ask for? Plus, I am doing what I feel is the right thing to do to secure my future.

So, ok Jan, buck up and move on. It’s going to be great. You are very fortunate to be able to do this and on top of it all, you get to share this adventure with others.

Good for you for seizing this opportunity! You are doing what most people wish they had the guts to do. You will have a great time and a great adventure. I hope it is all you want it to be, beach, siestas and exploring. You will be greatly missed but thank goodness for blogs and Skype. It is only natural to be a bit apprehensive when taking a big step like this so don't beat yourself up about a case of nerves. This ia just a dress rehearsal for the Peace Corp. Be safe and have a great adventure. Hope to come down in December to visit. Jan P.

Miz Jan,
I am thinking of you today as you begin your journey. I will look forward to our Skype appointments and seeing all your pictures. God is with you and we are all in your heart. I will ask God to send a special angel to be at your side.
Love You!!

It is normal to be a little nervous. I was certainly nervous when I moved to Italy, only 23 and didn't know I was "just a kid". BUT it was one of the best things that happened in my life. Getting to know and appreciate another culture firsthand was such a gift. I know I am better for it, and I grew so much. The one comment was so true...it is a good "practice" for the peace corps adventure. We can all live "through you" on this adventure. If you don't like the exact location where you're at, you can always explore and find another place. We anxiously await all the news. Take care, be safe, EAT, PRAY and even LOVE!! :) sher
