So often in our daily lives we find ourselves saying “someday I will do that” or “someday I will do this” or anything really that we find ourselves putting off to that unknown day when we think we will get to it.
That famous day called Someday.
Without even fully knowing I was looking for it, I found my someday last year on this very day, January 9, 2018.
It looked like this…
Our family was on a two week adventure driving the border of the United States and Mexico, from Florida to California. We were in the Anza-Borrego dessert in very Southern California. I had woken up just moments before I had experienced this epiphany! I gazed at the ceiling of our rooftop tent and felt so much clarity in that moment in time, that the only choice was to smile. I smiled so deeply I cried.
At that point in our trip, I had almost finished reading the book “You Are a Badass” by Jen Sincero (definitely read it if you haven’t already) and my mind and heart were very open to listening to my life. As well as feeling like a badass, I had also decided that the 2018 theme for the year was letting go. So really I had cleared a lot of space within to notice this moment.
This day, 365 days ago, I decided that, by profession, I was going to become an encourager of others. What this looked like in all it’s vagueness I had no idea, but I was surely determined to see it through. A life coach, a therapist, a quest, an advisory team, a business coach, a business class, a soft launch, a certification, a conference and oodles of networking and support later, I now find myself the proud founder, owner, and principal of a business you know today as Your Caregiver Journey.
Happy Anniversary to Someday. And I’m still smiling!
