I just came across a list of "things to do before I die": swimming in Greece, giving aid in Lebanon, etc. When I think of doing these things, I always picture myself "there" and forget what it takes to get there. But I've wanted to travel/missions/aid work for a long time and I really just need to do it. I talked to my brother about how I always put things off: "I don't have enough money/ I have a good job/ someone expects such and such of me..." LAME EXCUSES!!!
I've wanted to travel forever, and been putting it off for various dumb reasons for 6 years, so I'm going to do it. But it is just a tad scary.
