Adventure is not knowing. Adventure is being satisfied with the little that’s familiar. Adventure means you let go. As I get ready to participate in an expedition to Rwanda with 13 other counsellors for two weeks the only word is adventure. We have been encouraged to let go of expectations. Expecting to make a big difference. The attitude is to anticipate. Come what may.
As helpers, its easy to place immense expectation on oneself to provide all the answers.
Going to a land where genocide, rape and betrayal has been serious recent realities brings about great anticipation and expectation. That we would be able to help much.
I plan to anticipate. To hope for adventure. To wait and see. And to go with a mind to be helped as well.
If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time.
However, if you have come because your liberation is tied with mine,
then let us work together.”
