Waiting To Board

Updated: Sep 23, 2021

This is when the fun begins!

I'm finding this is also when my fears and anxieties are the hardest to tame! Waiting at the gate with an hour till boarding and I keep telling myself that this is exciting. God will carry me through my fears. When I imagined this moment 9 months ago I thought it would be pure excitement. Truth is there are loads of emotions but it's hard to sort through them all.

This past week my mom brought up a quote from the movie Armageddon and it is EXACTLY what I'm feeling right now.

"I'm great, I got that "excited/scared" feeling. Like 98% excited, 2% scared. Or maybe it's more. It could be, it could be 98% scared, 2% excited but that's what makes it so intense, it's so - confused. I can't really figure it out."

I'm not going to an asteroid on a life or death mission but it still feels like this applies to me. My world is being flipped upside down and I am removing myself from everything that I know and makes me comfortable. I really am 98% excited/scared.

The best thing that I could ask for right now is prayer. I really need some of that heavenly support right now. It'll be easier for me once I get to Amsterdam but for now these nerves are eating away at me.

What if something goes wrong! It probably won't but my head is peppering my thoughts with 'what-if' scenarios like that! Honestly, please just take a minute right now and send an encouraging thought my way (only if you want too, of course!). It would help me a ton!

On a different note, the plane just rolled into the gate! The action is about to start! I'll be posting an update about the journey tomorrow when I arrive in Amsterdam!

The plane arrives around 2:00 am MST so there may be a couple of updates ready by the time North America wakes up!
