At a crossroads in my life…

“When life hangs you at a cross-roads choose to follow love. Let the light in your heart guide you” 

There are times in our lives when we come to a crossroad, and we have to choose what path we want to go down without necessarily knowing where the path will end up. This decision will usually always be a major decision that will define the rest of our lives for us. This can often be a very confusing and tough time for us because we don’t want to choose to go down the wrong path, yet at the same time you can never make the wrong decision, it always works out in the end…

Life Update: One month in Revelstoke!

It has now marked officially 30 days that I have been here in Revelstoke. As I write this I look outside my window at a beautiful mountain scene. It sure has been an incredible experience so far. I have been keeping a diary of my day to day adventures, and it blows me away when I look at how much I have already done in such a short period of time! It seems like every three days I am embarking on a brand new adventure. From road trips to camping to crazy adrenaline pumping activities, the opportunities here are endless.

Life Update: My first few days in Revelstoke B.C

So I have officially made it to Revelstoke and settled in, and like holy crow has is ever been an amazing adventure so far!! As I write this, I am sitting outside on my little patio enjoying the sun while I stare at a gorgeous mountain view. It is breathtaking to say the least…

Here’s the view from the apartment I live: Isn’t it absolutely gorgeous!?!?

The first day was kinda strange, and I was pretty tempted to leave and go back home on the very first night… I had arrived around 7 pm and was told to go to the place I am working so that the manager could bring me to my new home. As part of the employment agreement, we are given free housing as a very positive perk in order to encourage us to pack our bags and travel across the country, but it is the employers choice where they want to house us, and for the most part we are stuck for 6 months with whatever they want to give us, which can be pretty nerve-racking when you first arrive…

Life update: I am moving to the Canadian Rockies in 10 days!!

The previous post was written on: Monday, May 8th- Life update: The universe is so incredible! 

I go on a bit of a rant about how awesome life is, and how excited I am for this amazing opportunity that I had just discovered!   



Written on: Friday, May 12th, 2017

So in 10 days, I am moving to the beautiful mountain town of Revelstoke British Columbia! Mainly known for an amazing winter ski resort, it is also a summer destination surrounded by several lakes, rivers, and countless hiking trails. I will be moving and be living there for the next 6 months, which is mind-boggling since I have no money in my bank right now. Moving away like this should be impossible for me to do, but yet again I have found a way.  I never in my wildest dreams could have even imagined this up, which is why I am pinching myself to make sure this isn’t a dream…

5 things I learned living in a new city

Moving to Vancouver was one of the craziest, scariest, and most rewarding experiences I have had to date. It pushed me so far out of my comfort zone that I was on the verge of a mental breakdown upon arriving back home two months later.

You can read the whole story here: The time I moved to Downtown Vancouver

But long story short, in Summer of 2015 I sold all my stuff and moved from Calgary to Vancouver and it ended up being one of the best growing experiences to date, teaching me so much about myself. And even though it didn’t turn out quite the way I had hoped it would, I learned so much about myself that I never would have learned if I never went.

I don’t regret for one minute my decision to go, and it will always be a very fond memory, but here are some of the main things I learned while living somewhere else.
