A time when all I did was say YES!

September 21, 2017

A true story: worth the read:

 

A time when All I did was say YES!

It was a Tuesday morning and I was sitting at my desk doing my usual “busy work”, break time, I popped open Facebook and the most incredible photo of Mother Nature that I've ever seen appeared before me. I clicked on the link which lead me to an invitation to the Xanadu Life….whats that?

------

Well the definition of Xanadu is “an idealized place of magnificent beauty” and this photo was definitely what I'd imagine when connected to the word magnificent! I knew in my gut I was ready to step away from my life which at the time felt very empty, toxic & unfulfilling, but I had NO IDEA what was about to happen. I've traveled to over 40 countries & this was the first journey I was about to embark on “truly alone”.

------

Full of FEAR… ugh, Step one, bought my ticket. A journey alongside 30 complete strangers, my gut telling me YES, my brain telling me “WTF” are you thinking?….

Step two, packed my bags. Time to arrange the 8 hour road trip to get the Grand Canyon. I thought, well, I can do the easy comfortable thing, drive solo, or I can really commit to stepping out of my comfort zone & car pool with complete strangers… “go big or go home” right? So I joined two strangers Melissa & Bogdan for the drive from LA to AZ (newly dating then, married now)!

--------

The first night all 30 of us (this is where I met Heidi & Ryan, founders of The Xanadu Life) this is when I realized many in the group already new each other, friends and couples......we joined in a potluck dinner. We sat on the edge of one of the 7 wonders of the World to witness an incredible sun set over the epic Grand Canyon. Later we laid under the vast expansion of stars
