Go where you want. Do what you want.

It doesn’t matter where you come from, what you’ve gone through, or who your parents are, your future is not fated to be the same as theirs. We all have the free will choice to choose a different life. You can move to a new town. The world is full of places to explore. You can overcome your past. What happened does not define who you are. You can have a different career. You don’t have to work the family business. The Universe is abundant. The only limits that exist are the ones we place on ourselves. Allow yourself the fun of dreaming. Allow yourself the freedom to make those dreams a reality. Tune out the naysayers, and get busy creating an amazing life! Don’t settle for less than a life that sets your soul on fire. Celebrate your success. Celebrate your failures too. It’s moving you in the direction you are meant to go. And no matter what, find joy in the journey.      ...

I hope you have the time of your life

“Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road. Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go. So make the best of this test, and don’t ask why. It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time. It’s something unpredictable, but in the end is right. I hope you had the time of your life.”  –Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) (Green Day) This song was released in 1997 – I was 23 years old at the time. I had graduated from university just the year before. I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life, and I certainly had no plan. I worked in a retail sales job where often a whole day would go by without any customers coming in. I was bored and unmotivated. I think I even fell asleep at work a few times. It was beyond brutal. I knew there was something more to life than what I was doing, but I didn’t know what it was or how to find it. But I had an idea – one I could not believe I was even thinking. Against everything that might have seemed logical, I followed my heart and moved from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Hay River, Northwest Territories – approximately 6300 kms (3900 miles) away from everything and almost everyone I knew. I had been to Hay River 2 years prior to the move – to visit my Mom and my uncle who were living there at the time. I didn’t love it at first. It was isolated and didn’t have a lot in the way...
