I’m going to Africa!

It is done! The entry fee is paid in full – no turning back!

I’ve been thinking about/dreaming about/talking about this trip for a few years now. It’s hard to believe that in less than 3 months, I’ll be leaving Cairo, along with my intrepid friend Gizele, and the rest of the group.

The day the entry fee was handed in was a Friday which is day of the Law of Detachment. This means letting go of any attachment to the outcome of choices I make. While I have to take responsibility for my actions, I can’t control the outcome. I really want to keep this in mind. Part of the anxiety of going on this trip is the unknown, and it’s so easy to conjure up scary scenarios, especially with some of the countries in Africa being so volatile right now.

So: in a nutshell, I’ve chosen to do this. I have no idea what may happen, but I’m determined to just take each day as it comes, be in the moment, let the universe take care of the details! Unexpected things can and do happen and I guess that’s part of what this adventure is

One thought on “I’m going to Africa!

  1. Great post Nola!! I will have to keep that “law” front and centre in my head too. What will be, will be…and I trust in God that we will be well looked after.
