“Not all who wander are lost”
I am not lost. I’m quite the opposite actually, for the first time in a long time I am living my life with intention. I may not have a firm plan, and that scares a lot of people, but what I do have is the ability to learn and grow and create a life that is beautifully my own.
I could not have asked for a better program or place to be at this point in my life. When signing up for GlobeKick I knew it offered yoga classes, personal and professional development opportunities and a community that was all choosing to say yes to a brand new experience (even more so that this is GlobeKick’s first program). That was enough for me. I knew I needed a change and if I stayed in Southern California the chance of me taking the time I needed to rediscover who I am and what I want was slim to none. I would be in the same routine, with the same job offers tempting me to continue down that path.
Traveling overseas was intended to take me out of my comfort zone, but a funny thing happened. I’m in a new city, with a new language, with new food of course, but within this community, I am more comfortable than I’ve been in quite some time.
I’m surrounded by authentic, motivated, intelligent, adventurous souls all here to learn and grow. We are in an environment that is allowing us to unapologetically be our true selves.
The program is designed to intentionally foster this type of community. We’re asked the tough questions about ourselves, our intentions, our hopes and our dreams and challenged to give authentic answers. These conversations have traveled out of our co-work space and yoga dojo to restaurants and bars, living rooms and river walks. We’re challenging ourselves and each other personally and professionally and it’s a beautiful thing.
I’ve been here just over two weeks and I’ve had more meaningful conversations than I can count. I’ve been held accountable to honestly think and speak about who I am and what I want my future to look like. Oh, and I just happen to be living in a beautiful country experiencing new adventures daily.
Many have asked me why I chose to travel with GlobeKick rather than travel on my own. At first, I didn’t have an answer other than it was way easier - they set up housing, co-work space, yoga classes, some sightseeing etc. I saw it as a soft-launch to solo travel.
What I now know is that I came here for the community, both the wonderful community of GlobeKick founders and staff that have intentionally formed a program to help others become the best versions of themselves and the community of GlobeKickers who said yes to this wonderful adventure and have reignited positivity and light to my journey.
Thank you all for the love and the continued support to follow my shine.
