Ladies, it's your time. Time to explore, transform, recharge and focus on your interests.
As president of Learning Journeys, I would like to share my own story. My life was harried and hectic. I was chasing a wheel that was never ending, taking care of everyone but me. The stress began to take its toll. One day I decided to design a women’s journey to Costa Rica for myself and my friends to get away from everything. We spent time together but also had ample time to ourselves to explore the interests we put aside in our busy lives. Sitting with my journal under a quiet tree, I began to feel myself again. This was a turning point. My life became much happier and more productive because I was able to find my way back to myself. I have since been committed to taking one “me” journey per year. Sometimes I travel solo, sometimes with my daughters, friends and groups which share my interests.
