As I was not planning any travelling this year, I decided to set other goals for myself, including doing public speaking (done!) and having an article published by the end of year. Well that second one is coming true!!
I had originally sent in an article to a Canadian publication called “Our Canada” back in October 2016 (when I was in China) and had not thought it had actually gone through due to the difficulties with the VPN and internet in China. Well in fact, it DID get sent and I guess it had been in a pile of other articles submitted. I received an email about a week ago from one of the editors asking if I’d still be interested in having it published and could I provide more information? Of course I said YES!
After many emails, searching and sending in pictures, it has been confirmed that in the December issue my article will be published in a NATIONAL magazine! To say I am slightly excited about this is an understatement. I cannot believe that I am actually going to have something I wrote in print for others to read.
It’s been such an unbelievable journey from 4 short years ago, when I was still working as a legal assistant in Calgary Alberta to where I am today. I am so grateful and humbled and just so happy for my life and the way it’s turned out for me.
If I can do this, ANYONE can!!!
