Release of Personal Rights and Embrace of New Opportunities

(I wrote this on the plane from Lima to Pucallpa)

I release my right to control a situation I have no control over.

I release my right to constant communication via technology.

I release my right to know what is happening and what will happen.

I release my right to understand and be an active participant in every conversation.

I release my right to personal comfort- temperature, bed, hot showers, etc.

I embrace the opportunity to allow someone else to have control.

I embrace the opportunity to be in constant communication with Jesus.

I embrace the opportunity to “hang loose,” “go with the flow,” “live in the moment,” and any other applicable cliches.

I embrace the opportunity to practice and learn both Spanish and the art of listening.

I embrace the opportunity to be fully immersed in culture and language, and become an honorary “Pucallpena.”
