grainy selfie in the hotel in Accra before catching my flight home
I don’t have much to say right now but a huge HELLO. Ghana was wild by the way. The people, the community, the way of life… Everything was so foreign and yet everything I expected it to be. I’m only now beginning to process it all. Maybe I’ll have more thoughts to share soon. Just know that travel changes you in unexpected ways. My heart will never be the same. Confronting personal fears and straight up poverty left a mark on my soul. I’m glad that it did. I needed to be checked. I needed to be humbled. Life is more then fancy careers, nice clothes, social lives, coffee shops, fancy meals, etc. Ghana taught me that a good life involves good people, that all people, no matter the circumstance, can love, and that love is the best gift we can ever give or receive.
Just straight up, plain old love. It’s good for the soul.
