For 5 years and 5 months I have been a resident of Ottawa (Canada) but as of tomorrow and for the next 4 days I will be travelling throughout Canada until my final destination. Vancouver. I have been in love of this city since 2013, I visited in a road trip and part of my heart was left there. Now, is time for me to go a meet that other part of it and start the biggest adventure of my life -up to now.
Vancouver has been in my mind since then and I can not tell you how many scenarios I have pictured and day dreamt about. However, there were plenty of things I needed to do in Ottawa before my cycle was finished here and when a friend asked me to give him the reasons why I was still in Ottawa. Well, I couldn’t. I was in silence. I did not have any, with a little bit of persuasion in that conversation. I decided to pack my belongings and go. Of course, I am selling more than 80% of my life, because believe it or not a girl can have lots of sh*&! with her.
I managed to put 5 years of things and only keep with me 6 suitcases, a bike, a paddleboard and 7 boxes. Yes, I know its still a bit much but as a side and background note: I was married and I used to live in a big house. I moved from my hometown Ecuador to Canada with plenty of gifts and so on from family and friends and there was a period in my life that my cope mechanism was buying things. Plenty of things belonged to Yoga, now they are almost gone.
How am I feeling? Well, it’s mixed feelings I managed to create a business in Yoga & Energy Healing, a community fill with amazing students that will always be in my heart (I am back next spring to visit everyone ?), an unbelievable trust-worthy clan of friends who are now my chosen family, memories that will never be forgotten, I have had several broken hearts and plenty of pain but Ottawa has been the backstage that prepared me for whatever is coming next. So, join me as I load my car and go.
Today, I am sharing the pics of the storm before the bright sunshine, -my friend Bekka calls it “organized chaos”- and the links of the things that are still up for grabs.
More to come but for now is that.
Good night my pretties… Ta-ta
