Worth it

20 May

My thoughts on leaving for the Mt. Everest Basecamp in two weeks time:

1. Was I on something when I sent in the official papers to subject myself to this cruel and unusual punishment of trekking for 20 days after living in India for 3 months?

2. What if I fall behind and can’t keep up with everyone else?

3. I could meet a monk there…

4. Will anyone my own age be on this trek with me?

5. Will I react with a good sense of humor or like a disgruntled old man when placed under extreme physical and mental duress?

6. I better put a lot of books on my Kindle before I go…

7. How am I going to write 50 postcards to send to everyone back home?

And even though I have all these thoughts running around in my head and I feel nervous, cautious, crazy and insane for deciding to do this, I know that it will be one of the best, most challenging things I have ever done in my life. It will be worth it.
