27 days and counting. Lots of emotions going through my mind. Am I truly ready – physically, mentally, to leave Gary, Anthony and my family and friends, ready to leave my job for about 24 days? Yes, yes and yes. I feel physically ready. Mentally I am still unsure. The unknown is mostly what has my mind racing in different directions. I will be with my cousin Nilda, Angelica and Mark and I feel totally comfortable that we can get through this. I recently watched a You Tube video that was very interesting. An Australian taped his journey and he shared some of his emotions. I am sure we will all go through some of the emotions that he shared with us. I will miss Gary and Anthony the most and the rest of my family as well. I will communicate by email or Facebook but not to be able to hear their voices will be strange. I will come to appreciate all the things that I probably take for granted. Looking forward to some life lessons. I have no expectations and hope to be open to whatever comes my way.
