So this beautiful trip I took across Canada in September was truly inspiring in many ways.
As many of you know I picked up a dear friend who has been living in Kelowna for the past 12 years. She made a decision to move back to Ontario for many GREAT reasons. Still, she left behind family, mountains, and beautiful lakes to make a major change in her life. I was so proud to stand by my friend and bring her back to Ontario. The way she embraces change is so motivating. She’s always been a friend that has loved change and craved it and as a result has lead a pretty exciting life.
What a healthy outlook. The trip across the country and our conversations in the car with the music blaring and the windows open made me realize how much of an adventure life is! Sure things can become, mundane, routine and ordinary and often we crave changes but are too afraid to make them because we fear how we will cope with them.
For me the traveling has really become an addiction and way I LOVE to spend my time and generate new business. I do however remember a time that I did not feel that way. I had traveled with friends in my 20’s to Europe and other places and then again with Wayne but the thought of making that extra leap and actually visiting places alone was something that felt a bit scary. I started by making little changes. Visiting small towns in Ontario and staying the night in a hotel on my own. Those one night trips turned into 2 or 3 days and before I knew it I was off to Florida for 2 weeks, British Columbia for a week and Ottawa and Montreal for a week at a time.
As a result of making those little changes I eased into something that is painless and FUN and the way that I prefer to do business!
The BEST part is when I get home and Wayne is at the door so proud of me and eager to hear about all of my adventures!
