Dear Wellness Seekers,
1. I move at a lively pace as I prepare to take a humanitarian vacation. How freeing it is to decide how, when, and where I will spend my time to enjoy each moment to the fullest while planning how I will accomplish my building projects and relationships. The 30 minute mototaxi rides from the village along a winding dirt road to the lake where we are building the AbodShelters was a real adventure.
3. I open up to learn about a different region and culture, and take in the stunning beauty of nature. I am stopping periodically to take in the moments and breathe, to enjoy the local flavors like these fruits – to burn the images in my brain as a positive memory.
Friday Wellness Tip: Humanitarian Vacation’s Rock offers a new way to look at how a humanitarian trip can be really rich with discovery and joy that enhances the rewards of giving back no matter what type of mission trip you might be on. My Ghana trip was life changing as a result.
Congratulations to anyone who took personal time to make a difference in the world. A personal thank you for your devotion to humanity.
