Life always gives us exactly what we need. If you would have asked me a couple years ago if I would pack up my dream life in Hawaii and head to the mainland again, I would have thought you were nuts! Well, maybe having a second home on the West Coast one day, but selling everything and re-starting up a life there – no way. Then again, if you would have asked me 18 years ago if I would have personal experiences with wild whales and dolphins and have started up my own company I also would have thought that was inconceivable! Even a few years later after saying, “no” to a management position in the life of society’s norm, with a home, car and steady paycheck flying to Hawaii with a backpack, bikini, surfboard and zero master plan – I still had no idea what was in store. All I knew at that time was that my heart wanted more. I wanted more than a job and a car and a paycheck – I’d been around a few blocks & had all those things but wasn’t fulfilled. I spent most of my teen years looking for happiness in all the wrong places, the material world, and crashed and burned time and again.
So I took a chance on my heart and eventually settled into a life better than I could ever dream! I think of Hawaii a little like Never Never Land, a playground type of place where dreams can come true. Sure, it’s not for everyone, but it was for me and opened up some massive heart opening transformation and lessons I’ve learned from the real masters of living – dolphins and whales.
A few years went by and I settled into that dream island life, thinking I would never leave. Fast forward to a year ago, when I had the intuitional download to pack it up and leave (again, without a master plan). Let me tell you, leaving Hawaii and my dolphin family to go to the land of corporate concrete jungles is a lot harder than the other way around. Nonetheless, although I still have fears and loads of ideas, I know one thing for sure and that is that my intuition never lies. So why on earth would I do this, you may be wondering and in fact recently got asked this again the other day. Well, most likely a lot of reasons still to be seen, however what I do know is that my heart wanted more. I wanted to be able to share in a bigger way what I’ve experienced and learned with more women who are stuck and struggling in stressful lives. Some pretty rad experiences have already come out of leaving that I never would have expected. The landlords of the home I had rented for over a decade sold it to the perfect people, I was able to be present for family situations that needed attention, and I had an opportunity to take time to recover from some pretty big life decisions and really be ready to open up and expand into more newness. Life and it’s many left turns!
