There I was sitting at my administrative desk job on the edge of downtown Calgary; my husband working in Fort McMurray, 21 year-old son at university down in Florida, and a 19 year-old daughter in second year at Mount Royal University, and I was asking myself , “Is this the way life is supposed to be?” This right-brained girl, living a left-brained life, started to squirm in her chair. Life was feeling out of whack.
Acknowledging the thought started the flow of nervous excitement and anxiousness that I recognized to mean only one thing…. change was imminent! I was craving adventure – something more.
I realized I would soon become an empty nester and I had to decide how life would be for me. The natural progression of life would be to spend more time reconnecting with my spouse. But he was in Fort McMurray.
So, what if I quit my job, embark on a new adventure and reconnect with my husband up north?
That was it! I took the leap. After all, what is the worst thing that could happen?
