For the past several years I have made a point of choosing a word as my focus for the entire year. One year was Simplify, last year was more of a declaration with Year of Me and this year is
This is the word that came to me late last year as I reflected on my time focusing on me, things I wanted to accomplish and plan for. It seemed the most fitting follow up and is something at the core of who I am. I want to spend this year discovering people and places and having new experiences and trying new things. Few things excite me more than the opportunity to discover. I’ve made no secret that travelling is one of my favourite things to do – it’s something I need and something I was made for. Even simply the planning stages of a getaway fill me with excitement. There are so many places I want to see and experience and so many people I’ve yet to meet.
I dream of province and state wide getaways, spending the time discovering all the little gems within the cities like Seattle, San Francisco, and Raleigh. And of course bigger and longer getaways to farther away places like Fiji, Italy, and Australia. Here’s hoping I live to be over a hundred so I have time to see even a fraction of the places on my list.
I’ve been lucky enough to travel a fair amount already throughout my life and already this year have spent time in Los Cabos, Lake Louise, and Santa Barbara, plus a one night staycation here in Lethbridge! It’s amazing what can happen when you put it out into the universe. Isn’t that the Secret? Well, I’m a believer and I can’t wait to see what the rest of this year holds.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey to discover!
