The whirlwind of emotions I’m feeling at my upcoming trip.
A while ago I was accepted into the Explore Quebec program. This program is government-funded with the mission to educate more Canadians to become more fluent or at least more comfortable with French.
I am so excited to be able to partake in this program, I am so thankful for this opportunity! At the same time I’m nearly nauseated with a nervous anxiety. I’m going to be staying with a local family rather than living in a university residence. It will be even more of an immersion into a french-fuelled lifestyle. Which is fantastic, I hope they will like me.
Did I mention that English is prohibited? Its a good thing to restrict use of English to release the reliance of it and push for an intense development in French. I just hope I can get by. I’ve got a sinking suspicion that I’m not going to be speaking a lot (like I the chatterbox that I normally am).
All that said. I am nearly in nirvana. I am so content with life. I’m always a pretty happy person but often I get bursts of happiness and a sense of such thankfulness for my life. Right now, as I am typing these words, I am smiling… truly smiling from within. I can feel the beginning of an adventure emerging and I am ready to tackle it head-on. It is going to be a little scary, a lot of stumbling is going to happen, but it will be fantastic.
Life. I’m ready for you.
