"Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn."
In May last year, I took the holiday of a lifetime and went on a Trek America tour to parts of Canada and America (The Canadian Pioneer.) I had booked the holiday on the back of a really hard time in my life. Knowing that I needed to do something major to give me some perspective, I booked a holiday as epic and as far away as I could manage!
It was honestly the best thing I could have ever done!
Being out there gave me so much clarity and time to think about my life; where I wanted it to go and how I needed it to change. I grew stronger as a person and came back refreshed and ready to take on the world.
I met some lovely people, did some crazy things, and laughed so hard that my stomach ached! We toasted marshmallows, drank wine, played stupid games, and survived a night in the wilderness with a pesky raccoon sneaking around.
It was definitely the best decision I ever made to go on that holiday, and I don't think I'd be where I am today if I hadn't have gone. I am in such a good, positive and happy place just over a year on, and so much has changed, that it's hard to imagine I was ever the same person I was before I went away!
