I didn't consume for a week and a half. No phone, no internet, no worries about bills or work or coworkers – non of that. For a week and a half.
Recently I went on a missions trip to Haiti and I was privileged to go and see the area in which my mom grew up.
Many people asked if I was culture shocked – but I didn't go with much expectations. I heard stories from not having access to any water or food, I've heard stories about how crazy the heat is, and how the natives are. I was able to live amounts the people for a week and a day but knowing that I would go back home played a part in the missions service trip.
The enjoyed not having to think of bills, work, or getting requests from people. I was in Haiti serving others full time but let's not make things all peachy. There were moments of frustration and annoyance but they passed daily quickly.
The heat got to me and had me drained and dehydrated so through the rest of the week I was checking my blood pressure. Turns out that it was significantly high majority of the week.
I have to make a doctors appointment and take my health much more seriously if I don't want any permanent issues.
