So I’m just about to head off to Squamish to work at Live at Squamish, I’m pretty stoked not gonna lie. It’s actually on my Summer bucket list to check out an outdoor concert – do I get bonus checkmarks if I’m getting paid for it?! I think I just get a bigger perma-grin. Even better that I get to work it with Laura, a good friend of mine from Nursing school. Life is good! I’m actually pretty curious as to what we’re going to have to do for medical help. Drunk people and overdoses? Or is it just going to be a bunch of people chilling out calmly, enjoying the sun? I’m guessing not. I’m sure this is going to be interesting!!
We are leaving tomorrow morning, before it’s acceptable for normal people to wake up, (meaning VERY early) to head out on an adventure of bliss. I cannot wait to have my life on my back, great people around me and taking in as much of the ocean and trees as I can. The North Coast Trail. We’re hiking it in 5 days. I wish I could stay out there longer. This has been a goal of mine for years – and it’s finally happening. There was a small chunk of time for a moment where it wasn’t going to happen this year, but thanks to one of my faovurite sayings, “Everything falls into place when the timing is right”, it’s happening! And we are pretty stacked if you ask me: 3 nurses and a paramedic. No need to worry about us! Plus we have plenty of wine and chocolate, so phewww, we are going to be alright!
I’m really needing this trip. I’m starting to feel super burnt out. It hit me on Friday. I’m just tired. I even had a ridiculous stomach pain that lasted for about 6 hours yesterday, maybe just telling me to chill OUT! It’s hard being ‘go-go-go’ all the time, especially when so many things are new. No complaints are coming from me, I couldn’t ask for anything more. I’m just a little tired, and in need of some tree-hugging. So this trip couldn’t have come at a better time. Work hard, play harder. That’s definitely what I’m striving for. See you on Day 1 of the next 40 day Challenge, August 28th! I’m excited for this break and then to be able to share everything I’m inspired by. 5 days in the trees beside the ocean – a completely re-charged and re-energized soul. I can’t wait. Have a great week! :)
Smile with your heart!
