This MOVED ME.
Spoke DEEPLY TO ME.
One of my top favorite 5 books, mango elephants in the sun—-
This young, divorced, lost soul- spends two years in northern Cameroon as a Peace Corps teacher in a remote African village.
For ALL. In thousands of ways.
By the end, she truly truly finds her soul.
‘Jam bah doo nah?’ (‘Are you in your skin?’) her neighbors ask her as a way of greeting, and it means,
‘Yes, I am alive, fully present and experiencing the moment.’
No matter what you are experiencing each day in your journey.
Especially when you are going 100mph + rushed.
When you are hurt + suffering.
When you feel lost.
When you’re brushing your teeth, for gosh sakes!!
Jam bah doo nah???
Are you alive in your skin?
Are you fully present in the moment and truly feeling?
Ahhhhhhh. Life changing.
Being present. Truly soaking in LIFE, feeling, and being.
Living life instead of rushing or bypassing THE Moments.
All. The. Millions. Of. Moments. In. Our. Day.
