My kids and I are taking a little road trip this weekend. We do that a lot – just to change the scenery even if it’s just for a few days. This weekend is Record Store Day so we’re going to the big city to support independent record stores. But – we’re going on a really long one in the summertime. Living Light has graciously allowed me to take five weeks off in July and August and I’m going to drive across the country. The kids will be along, of course, but I will be doing all of the actual driving. We are going to see lots of relatives we normally wouldn’t – some in New Mexico, some in Wisconsin, some in Oregon. My daughter will spend another session at IMA’s rock and roll camp for girls in Massachusetts. It’s going to be quite an adventure – hopefully the good kind.
Living Light directors Cherie Soria and Dan Ladermann and Culinary Programs Manager Martine Lussier are on a road trip right now. They just did a FUNdamentals class in Vancouver and are now in Toronto to do another plus participate in that city’s Total Health Show. Then they’re back to our side of the country to do a FUNdamentals class in Seattle and another in Oregon. It’s not too late to be a part of this particular road trip. You can still sign up for the FUNdamentals classes and check out our website for lots of other cool events that are happening in those areas.
Changing the scenery, even if only for a day or two, always gets me back on track. Sometimes I feel a little overwhelmed by my own life. Silly, really, because it’s pretty dialed in right now as far as work, home and balance are concerned. But still, sometimes I get a little anxious about whether or not I’m on the right track, headed in the right direction. Getting away for a couple of days tends to clear the internal air for me and I can settle back in with contentment. I’m looking forward to this weekend and a fresh perspective when I return.
