Have you ever stepped away for a few days?

Have you ever given yourself a chance to quiet your soul, ambitions, and the constant chatter in your brain?

Last week I escaped to the Jervis Inlet in British Columbia for a retreat with some fellow writers, musicians, entrepreneurs, etc. I had no idea what to expect, but what I found was…an intervention!!!

Since retiring from the Canadian Women’s Water Polo Team, I’ve been moving pretty fast, attempting to solidify who I am now that I’m not a full-time athlete. I’ve been chasing goal after goal after goal, which has made it difficult to hear the quiet whisper of my soul. I haven’t made the time to consider what I really, really want for my life.

And it was pretty tough, perhaps even scary, to realize I haven’t been totally listening.

But it’s also life-giving and freeing. It allows you to let go of who you used to be to become who you are right now. I saw things I didn’t see, which has caused me to have conversations I would have never had, and make changes I didn’t anticipate making.

Some of the key questions we asked ourselves:

  1. Who am I?
  2. Where am I?
  3. What do I want?

This summer, will you take a few days to ask yourself these questions? Remember, the #1 regret of the dying is they lived a life to meet someone else’s expectations rather than their own.
