This week I was intending to recycle one from the archives. You see I’m working on an exciting new program – which I’m soft launching TODAY! – and wanted to give myself permission to work on the copy, as well as my book (Fridays are now my writing days!)
At least, that was the plan.
You know what happened instead?
I ended up getting sucked into the ‘Happy Friday’ vortex ~ and spent way too much time re-reading these emails that I’ve been writing for – get this – almost 5 years! Holy geez! Just WHERE does the time go?!?
And the biggest ah-ha I had? I don’t really think I’ve changed very much in all that time.
I’m writing about much the same things, and in much the same way.
It’s funny. I would’ve thought I’d be in such a different place by now ~ however I guess it just means I’m still me. Which is a good thing, no?
I mean, a lot has changed – I started by writing about my time living in Germany and then Wales to keep my friends and family in the loop – and now I have a blog, a business, and I’m writing from back home in Toronto (at least this week!), to my extended community about my journeys and my learnings, sprinkled with dashes of inspiration and ideas of how to live just a little bit bigger.
I’ve grown, I’ve done different things, I’ve achieved a few new things, however I’m still me.
And no matter where I go or how I grow, let’s hope I will always, at the core, still be me.
We’re growing every day, changing every day, and hopefully also enjoying the journey every day. I’m learning to quiet the noise ~ to look less at what everyone else is trying to do, and instead focus more on what is right for me.
BE more you and DO more you. You’re the only one in the world who has all you have. And it deserves to be shared. (click to tweet it out!)
Seeing as how I ended up doing some self-reflection this week, I’d like to offer you the same thing.
Read the following questions, and choose to answer at least 10. (And if you REALLY want to go crazy ~ answer them all! Go on, DO IT! I dare you.) And then let me know how you get on. Doing so will help you to BE more and DO more you.

AND, seeing as how I’m soft launching my exciting new offer today – I won’t let you down, and will give you a little preview. It’s called: ‘My BIG Breakthrough Day’ ~ and it entails you, me, some intense work busting through your biggest fears, and creating a custom-tailored experience (Skydiving? Race car driving? Ziplining?) that will have you achieve something you NEVER thought possible. It’s that day that will mark the first day of the rest of your life. And it will be a day that you will no doubt remember for the rest of your life. Wanna learn more? See if it’s a fit? Book a call with me! Let’s DO this!
Have a FAB week!
