I have these words written on a piece of paper placed directly in front of me taped to the bottom of my vision board. The words kind of scream at me, in a paradoxical way, hanging there with big stars on either side of the text followed by a smiley face. On this piece of paper, I also wrote my intention:
While I love my work and the direction my life has taken over this last year, I have to admit there were some challenges along the way that many people can identify with or at least imagine: living abroad and not speaking the language, starting your own business, getting divorced...
However, through these challenges I have tried to share with you through my writing the lessons and goodness and beauty and humanity that I have witnessed and been blessed by from taking this journey.
In less than one week, I will be returning to Canada for two and a half months for Christmas and to promote and run the Follow Your Heart Goals workshops in Windsor and Leamington and another one online.
I am also going to visit local elementary schools to coordinate a Pen Pal letter program between these children and my Dominican students!
I talked with a dear friend about my thoughts and feelings and she shared with me a piece of wisdom that deeply resonated with me and I wanted to pass it along.
"Just know that whatever lies in front of you is within your capacity to cope."
Wishing you peace, compassion and lightness today!
