I don't think I'd ever live my life this far out of my comfort zone. When I was a kid I went on road trips with my family and dreamed of seeing ever state and province, then my dreams grew to seeing every continent... even though I was (and am) a total home body. I was more excited by the idea of staying in the town I grew up in and having 5 kids than I was traveling the world... But slowly things changed, I moved away from my small town and learned about the sad and amazing things the world had to offer. I heard about genocides and apartheid and wars going on in countries I knew little about. Something grew in my heart and I knew that there was no way I could ignore what I had learned about. I went on to get my degree in International Development and the more I learned the more I felt helpless to do much, there was so much poverty and violence and here I was a privilege white woman knowing only what I had read in books. Fast forward a few years and here I am in Uganda working with a maternal health NGO bringing my love of babies and birth together with my social media addiction and heart to help others. I've wanted to travel and possibly live overseas for years, yet I was too afraid to... So here I am way out of my comfort zone and yet exactly where I need to be.
