Well, as I sit in my new home office doing work, listening to jazz music (yes, jazz… I feel like I’m in a coffee shop, except that in this coffee shop I don’t have to wear a bra and I can be in my robe), I realize this is all happening and that yes, this is real life (lol). I’m actually working for myself, living in beautiful Victoria, BC, doing what I love, and I’m starting to grow my own business. Holy shit! I am excited, scared, anxious, determined… all of the feelings! But I feel like I am exactly where I am supposed to be and doing what I am meant to be doing.
For those of you that don’t know me or my current situation, here is a quick recap for you. I am from London, Ontario and just moved out to Victoria BC with the love of my life. My man is in the Navy and got a two year contract out here. It was an opportunity we couldn’t turn down, so we decided to pack our things and make the move! Although I would be leaving my job, family, and friends back home, I knew that this was the chance to take a leap, a new beginning, a new life on the west coast with my love, and a chance to start my own business, something I had always thought of doing but really didn’t have the time or commitment to make it happen. My family, close friends, and my boyfriend have been nothing but supportive and encouraging, and that has meant the world to me. I figure if this is scary, it’s good! It forces me out of my comfort zone and pushes me to my limits to make things happen the way I want them to. I am now in charge of my own income, which is pretty exciting… and ya a little scary too, but in the end I will be working for myself, doing my passion with freedom, and no one to tell me I can’t do something. I know it will take some time for my business to grow and get to the level I want it to, but I know I will get there and that I have to start somewhere!
I plan on putting content on my website every 1-2 days to stay connected with you guys and share some of the awesome things happening! Feel free to comment on my posts, email me, and share with your friends. You can also find me on Facebook and Instagram where I will have links to my most recent posts, which provides an easy way to check updates if you are on that social media platform as well.
When I write my posts, I will have spelling mistakes and probably some grammar and formatting issues here and there but I’m not perfect or trying be, and will be typing things just how I am saying them in my head. Although sometimes I feel like a writer, I don’t have a team of proof readers and editors going over everything, so please accept my posts as is because it is simply me and myself editing.
So this completes my first little post – I’m super excited to have this launched and finally out in the world! I will chat with you all again soon!!
Peace, love and just be!
