a look inside the life of Whitney

1 Week to Go!


I’m starting to have those “slight” panic moments where reality hits me like a ton of bricks with the realization of how close my trip is now, and how I’m actually FINALLY going out of the country somewhere. Those moments go something like this:

-sudden gasp- “holy crap! Ok. Breath. It’s so soon!”

Shortly after, my mind would buzz into a string of thoughts about what else needs to be done and what else I need to do to prepare. Am I ready? Have I got everything I need? The first time this happened, this moment of panic, I realized I needed to write down everything I needed to do, then plan it out day by day until the day I leave. So far it has been a huge relief. Those moments quickly pass when I simply remember what I planned for the day, and focused on that only.

Since I have so far been working off that list, preparing has gone rather smoothly. So smoothly, that I’m not used to it and wonder if I am forgetting things. Surely I am. But that’s ok, I’ll be ready to go one way or the other and the hours are quickly passing by. I’m so excited!

Tomorrow I’ll be spending my morning doing a test run of packing. I’m going to locate and gather everything that I want to take, then try to cut back so I don’t take too much. I want to pack light and have room for souvenirs for the trip back šŸ™‚

In this last week, I would like to ask that everyone who reads this would take a moment to post a word of encouragement or prayer, whether it be on this post or future posts in these days leading up to when I leave. I’m really excited but still nervous and would love to know that people are praying for me! Thank you so much and have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Good morning sweetie, I don’t know who is more nervous, me or you. The closer it gets to blast off, the more I worry about you being out of the country. I know you will be safe because I have placed you in God’s hands. I still wont sleep good until you tell me you are back home, and safe. I remind God every day to watch over you, and bring you back safely to us. I love you.

  2. Love you, Dad

  3. You are in my daily prayers even more so as you go on this trip. No mom could be more proud.

  4. You are always on my mind & in my prayers!!!!

Tell me what you think :)
