You may remember that I recently purchased advertising space at Whatever blog from a woman named Meg. The fee helped her pay for a trip to Sierra Leone in West Africa. She returned from her trip safely and wrote a blog post about her immediate impressions upon return. You can read about her experience here.
I bought ad space from her because I believe that it’s important to support people as they push the boundaries of our comfort zones. Whatever their boundary may be; however, tightly enforced.
Because I hope that if I am open to the lessons of a new understanding something in my life will improve. Or at the very least I will have a unique appreciation for another story.
It may not always happen that way.
But it has happened for me twice. Probably more, but two times were really impactful. Both gave me a wider world view. Ones that I probably wouldn’t have if had not been for the decision to challenge what I knew of life.
I think it’s worth the risk.
