Hello you, how are things?
It’s been so long I don’t even remember the last time I sat down to write. I must say I really miss it.
As you can probably tell from the first line, I’ve taken some time off from the blog to think about my life right now and where I want to be in the next 5 years. Believe me, it was a lot of thinking. LOL🙂
But first, let me tell you that so much has happened since last summer, here are a few highlights;
  • I moved to a newly renovated house in June of 2019. Between packing and organizing the new place, I was exhausted at the end of each day, there was no chance to write a blog post.
  • I took a 6-month leave of absence from my 7-3 corporate job as I was so unhappy with the work, the company and the lack of support. I had been thinking about leaving for quite some time and knew I had to stop thinking and start doing. After 19 years of service, I had to finally get out of my comfort zone, cut the cord and move on.
  • During my leave, I worked hard on another personal project, this time to become an online marketer. I took some courses, joined marketing groups, watched tons of videos and started a new site, an affiliate marketing site. More on that another day as I’m still working on it. 😉
  • I did find another job (before quitting the other one) and the transition was smooth. I’m now part of an awesome team, I can work from home occasionally and I feel validated and supported. It was a great change for me, I’ve learned a lot of new things and I continue to look forward to new challenges.



During the transition between jobs, I took some time to get clear on what I really want to do for the next 45 years.
I made a list of the things I want to do and accomplish and started working towards those things.
Since I started practicing meditation (to relieve stress), I feel like I’m more in touch with my inner being, more aware of my thoughts and paying more attention to what makes me happy. I started exploring my spiritual side a bit more and I love it. There is so much to learn in this lifetime! I’m so excited for what is yet to come.🙂
My plan is to get back in the flow and write more for the blog. I’ve come across some amazing tools and resources that I want to share on future posts.
I think you are going to like it.
Thanks for reading and remember:
You can never get real progress if you don’t take action.
Take care,
