Leaving on a Jet plane & Bringing Back Some Introspection

Hello my fellow blog lovers,

I’M BACK!!  Did you miss me?  I know I missed sharing with all of you these past couple of weeks.  Feels good to be back and ready to let you all in just that little bit more into my crazy little life. So here we go.


As many of you already know, I recently had a trip out to Vancouver to attend a women’s conference, meet with clients and try to fit in some fun while I was at it.  As I was there I came to a moment, a moment where I came to the realization that all of what was happening in these moments in Vancouver could not have happened if I had played it safe and just looked for another J.O.B when my contract ended at Airbus Helicopters Canada back in March.  Choosing to become a full time entrepreneur and really committing to it has been one of the scariest, most frustrating, tiring but exhilarating experiences I have ever had in my life thus far and I wouldn’t change it for the world.  With each new day I am learning new things about running a business and more importantly I am learning new things about myself; what I can achieve, my hidden skills and the rise in my own self confidence to boot.  Being an entrepreneur is not for everyone.  There are days where I feel like I am out on a tight rope and with that rush of wind I could fall off, but in that very moment with that same rush of wind I could just as easily fly.  It really is all in your own mindset and belief that you can achieve what your heart is set on.

Now don’t get me wrong I am not freaking perfect or a superwoman by any means, just a women who has finally taken the time to listen to her own intuition and gut.  My gut knows that I will fail, and I will fail hard again and again but she also knows that each time I will get up, brush myself off, maybe lick my wounds for a little bit, but in the end I will always keep going.

However, what makes this time a bit different is that instead of just jumping into the next situation, I will instead take a moment to sit back, feel, come to terms with my feelings, and then let go of these failures and hopefully learn from each each and every one of them and not repeat them again in the future.

As I was sitting in the Arbutus Club on Oct 13th with other like minded women entrepreneurs of eWomen Network Vancouver Metro listening to the enchanting and memorizing speakers, I knew that I was just where I am supposed to be, right now in my life.  As Isabelle Mercier Turcotte of Leapzone Strategies explained to all of us  “40% of what we worry about will never happen and 30% of what we worry about has already happened”  So what the fuck are we worried or scared of ‘what if’ or ‘what might’ happen if we take a leap of faith on ourselves?? She went on to explain that essentially worrying is what keeps us from living our lives by desire instead of just by default like most of us do when we take the safe way out and do what we ‘think’ everyone is expecting of us instead of doing what we really desire for our lives.  Mind officially blown!

Not to mention Sharla Jacobs of Thrive Academy who went on to reveal her secret to ‘heart’ selling who you are to prospective clients when meeting new people, I  won’t get into this here, but if we ever meet in person, let’s grab a coffee and we can discuss it 🙂

But,what really resounded with me was her simple but compelling statement of “the key to personal success in anything you do in life is to know and accept your why”  Why do YOU do what you do?  What is your own personal definition of success?  What does it look like?  Are you living it now?  What do you need to do to start yourself on that road to personal success? Whoaaaaaaaaaa Blown people!

Well it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t capture this moment in some way. While at the conference I did a Facebook Live Vid, check it out for live epiphany moments!

These moments I just explained to all of you, getting time in new surroundings to reflect, getting together with old and new friends to reconnect and sitting in awe of the beauty which is Vancouver, I have returned a new women, entrepreneur and person.  I truly am excited about how I can now apply these revelations to my life and take myself that one step even closer to not only picturing but manifesting the life and my own personal why into reality!  The future is sure looking bright and I have just the right amount of sunblock on hand so I don’t get burned. 🙂

Thank you all again for stopping by and taking the time to read my ramblings and goings on every week, it really does not go unnoticed or unappreciated.  But before I go I would like to know, have you ever experienced an ‘Aha’ moment in your life which allowed you to finally know for certain what you were supposed to be doing in your life?  If so what was it and did you start the process to make it happen for yourself?  I can not wait to hear your answers!

Until we meet again,

Love & Light I send to you always,

Dina xxoo
