I wonder if I can get sponsorship to go on the next M.I.L.E. trip.
The trip was so incredible and they’re planning on doing even more local work within Cerro de Oro, that I’d love to be continue to be a part of it.
I forgot how good it feels to spend a week doing service for other people. I’ve done stuff within my own community and within the States, but this was my first time out of the country. I feel that I’ve learned more from the people in Guatemala than they could have learned from me.
Sadly, I cannot afford to go on this next trip.
I guess anything is possible, right?
Now THIS is a pretty sweet @Indiegogo reward! Thanks, @minna_life!
Our last day in Guatemala for this #MILE trip. Exploring Antigua before the Burning of the Devil.
I have things to think and write about for this trip…
On our way to Antigua for the Burning of the Devil, our bus broke down. Yep. A couple of times actually. On a busy Guatemalan highway.
So while we waited for a new bus to arrive, I found a little more of Guatemala’s beauty.
Lago de Atitlán. Cerro de Oro, Guatemala.
Ahhh… That glorious feeling at the end of the day when you take your contacts out and your bra off.
Wow… he was in one of my dreams last night. Not sure how I feel about the visit.
Ch - Ch - Changes
It’s an adjustment when I’d spent two years of my life focused on work and sacrificed parts of my life for it, only to have things abruptly change.
It’s been nice getting a breather. I’ve been squeezing in two years of stuff into a few weeks.
I see my time as a great experience and stepping stone. It’s nice to know that other companies were already looking at me and that there’s been interest.
I’ve kind of compared this to my first relationship where it ends, there’s sadness, and then something better comes along.
What DO I really want? Am I willing to sacrifice anything for the next position? If so, what?
I want to work with a company that I like with a product line that I truly believe in. If I don’t like something, it shows. I want to get back out on the road because I know that’s where I excel. I’m best with the face to face time with sales staff because I’ve built some great relationships.
Do I even want to stay in the industry?
