IMG_2894Are You Present To What Is Happening Around You?

Isn’t it amazing how small the world is getting and how easy it is for us to communicate almost as if we were right next door?

I am sitting looking out our window from our suite here in Barcelona as I am writing this post. Brian and Hanalei are still snoozing and the city around me is starting to wake up.

I am in Spain!

and to think just 5 days ago I was in Germany then 5 days before that Bend, Oregon, and 3 weeks before that Tahoe, then Denver, then Michigan, then San Diego, then Panama, then Brasil, then PEru, then Mexico, then Nicaragua, then, Costa Rica, Then Fiji, then Bali, then Hawaii then…

Where this whole idea came to thought in San Diego.

That was only a short 4 years and 9 months ago that we made the decision to start traveling after coming out of a horrible financial downfall of bad investments after another and look where we are now.

One of my mentors Mark Hoverson says ” We are just seconds away from a quantum leap in our lives” but we have to “BE PRESENT” to experience it.

I want to repeat that..

“Present to experience it”.

You see, we will all go through some heart ache or difficult times in our life…thats just life.. But it is up to us on whether we use it as a step stone to grow from or allow the difficult times to anchor us down.


When we allow the difficult times to anchor us, we remove ourselves from that “Present Moment” and all the learning and growing that should come from that time is overlooked because we are too focused on “WHY ME” instead of “WHY NOT ME”?

It’s in that moment that you ask yourself “WHY NOT ME” is when your awareness of the lessons that come from each experience present themselves to you. This is that present moment where you welcome the “quantum leap” of growth and success into your life.

So as I reflect on the last 4 yrs and 9 months of ups, down’s and all arounds I am present to the lessons, the experience and the guidance I have gotten from them.

I believe in a higher source ( God, Universe, Spirit) and know that everything is put in front of us to make us who we are supposed to be in this world, and that we are to take those experiences and lessons and be our best version of ourself that we can possibly be.

So as some of you are going to bed, some rising I want to leave you with this thought today…

“Go Out And Be Your BEST You To This World,
Take The Lessons That Are Laid In Front Of You
And Be Present To the Quantum Leap That About To Happen”
