Something that has become one of the mantras of my life is learn to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations. I have come to understand and appreciate that the most growth and learning happens when I push myself to get out of my comfort zone and to step into experiences that may scare me. When I push myself, challenge myself, allow myself to step to up to higher standards, I begin to see that I am capable of so much more than my fearful mind sometimes allows me to see. Thankfully, my adventurous soul has grabbed ahold of this discovery, and I find my comfort zone growing quickly and significantly. Experiences and ideas that would have made me completely uncomfortable just a couple of years ago are now things that I embrace. I am learning to be comfortable in the midst of discomfort, through knowing that discomfort will probably inspire and grow me more than I could ever imagine.
These are the stories of my adventures of growing, learning and serving in Peru!
