Shifting Perspectives

  One of my good friends, Cathy Yost, has been an amazing support to me through this project by helping me to work through  things I have struggled with along the way.  I knew I needed to have a Skype date with her after the cockroach incident in Rwanda.

I heard it scuttling and immediately freaked out jumping on top of my bed, barricading myself inside my bug net while swinging my only weapon, a welcome mat!  I knew in that moment that my reaction was ridiculous but how could I get over my fear of spiders, cockroaches and all creepy crawlies?

Cathy helped me to realize that it wasn’t about the bugs it was about looking for what I wanted to see.  That if I chose to look for the good I wouldn’t see as much of the bad.  So that has been my challenge over the last coupe of months – to not look for the creepy crawlies, to keep going one step at a time forward in this journey of becoming more courageous in small ways.
