You never achieve success unless you like what you are doing. -Dale Carnegie
I consider myself VERY blessed (too many reasons to list)! Some people find their passions early in life, some find them in the “middle”, and some never do (that is the saddest one for me). I love hearing the stories of the 70 year olds living their dreams. I would say I have found my passion in 2nd grade! I wanted to be a teacher (history to be exact!). I may not be the “typical” teacher, but I have become a teacher of life and finding your passion to college age students. I love teaching them skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. In college I started working for Vector Marketing. Yes, I work for the knife company…..and just celebrated 20 years with Vector Marketing! During the past 10 years, I have been in the recruiting area and am currently the National Campus Relations manager.
During my time as campus relations manager I have discovered a few new passions…..travel and photography! That is how this blog started. As I have stated in my ABOUT ME page, I travel differently and with a sense of adventure. As you look over my blogs, you can tell that they are not filled with words. They are mainly filled with pictures. For me, pictures move my soul and I can stare at them for HOURS! I am surrounded by pics at home and the office. When I travel now, my eye’s view things as if they were a camera. It can take me longer to get to places because I keep stopping to snap pictures.
The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams. -Oprah
The above quote is how I live my life. I surround myself with people who LIVE life and look on the positive side of things. Yes, I know that we are all thrown curve balls and sometimes we ask ourselves why this is happening! A few years ago, I had a life coach come into my life…..Fi Mazenke. She helped me see my potential and live life. Thank you Fi!
Here are Helen’s tips for living life:
- Enjoy the Moment- you will never have it back! (easy to say, but hard to do sometimes)
- Listen to your intuition
- Do what makes you smile
- Do things because YOU want to do them!
- Enjoy the people around you!
I look forward to sharing with you more travels and adventures while living life!
