October 2020 Homeward Bound
October is absolutely one of my favourite times of the year and it is really beautiful everywhere you look around – golden leaves colours and foliage, nature hikes, Thanksgiving holiday and Halloween – a month full of treats for everyone!
Whether you enjoy nature walks or the spooky Halloween costumes and treats, or Thanksgiving gathering, I wish you and your loved ones will enjoy this time of the year.
With the unprecedented times we are witnessing globally during the past few months in 2020 that have literally changed the course of our life and the way we live. Like everyone, I found myself and my family going through a stressful and demanding period of time. There’s a real emotional impact on our life and mental health, and I’ve personally went through it myself and with those around us. Keeping our family healthy and safe has become everyone’s biggest priority.
I’ve found the only way for myself to turn around and stay away from living with anxiety or fear, is to give thanks and feel a daily appreciation for every aspect of my life. Despite the challenge of being a solo parent and a business owner, I feel incredibly blessed that Justin and I are healthy, and we have family & friends, school, tennis lessons and nature walks. I also feel empowered when I see my entire Team’s tremendous dedication and hard work as we help more than 50 families move to their new homes while navigating through the pandemic! I am grateful for the trust and support of our clients. Meeting warm and caring people is truly what makes our work so rewarding. Focusing on my commitment to impact the lives of families for our clients and team members is what truly lifts my spirits and motivates me every day to get up and move forward with strong purpose. Thank you for your continuous support and your relationship means so much to me and our team and families!
