To help. To inspire, motivate and support people. To show them that they are far more capable than they think they are.
Sometimes we do things because they’re expected of us or behave in a certain way because we don’t know any other way.
We are always learning about the world as much we are learning about ourselves.
We are something to discover. We are each a journey; a pilgrimage. There are profound destinations and valuable treasures inside all of us, waiting to be uncovered. And we are worthy of self-discovery.
We are limited only by our beliefs.
Where you are now doesn’t determine who you are. Neither does your past. The roles you play, titles you carry and adjectives you use to describe yourself are only a reflection of the limited beliefs you hang onto.
For all of us, it is what we do next that determines who we are. We are powerful beyond belief. We are stories waiting to be written.
In 2016, I had a deep sense of need. A need to get away. To step outside life as I knew it. That need is what drove me to embark on the pilgrimage that is the Camino de Santiago. It was challenging on every level; physically, psychologically and spiritually. As I was running away from one thing, I discovered something else, something that changed the way I will forever look at all things.
The Camino is a trifecta of challenges that awaken the body, the mind and the spirit, so that who we were at the start of the journey is left in the dust as we become who we truly are and are truly meant to be at journey’s end.
By sharing my Camino journey with you, how it helped me grow, the lessons and the revelations I had while biking from St-Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela, I hope that you will begin to see the awesome expanse of what’s possible for yourself.
I have been lucky enough to do this journey three times, each time opening myself up to different experiences and learning something new. I want people to know that it’s not impossible to have the life they want. It is so wonderfully, excitingly possible.
