As part of the session on motivation, the existing volunteers shared that in aiming for high impact, we very often forget our smal achievements and dont congratulate ourselves! To help us do so, we were asked to write a letter to ourselves...here is what I wrote...
You are truly fantastic. I want to congratulate you for taking this leap; for finally doing what you have been thinking about for a long time; for leaving your comfort zone and loved ones to find comfort in and give comfort to some others who are in a similar journey as you; for wanting to understand and live in a new culture and the joys, the pain, the excitement, the passion in
their lives; and finally for venturing from the planned into the unknown!
