Love and Acceptance Tour
Since writing the intro below in March, the summer tour and other things I wanted have manifested, but in ways I hadn't imagined at the time I wrote it. I am going to keep the original intro so as to document my experience and the process of creating what I want for my self and my life. I invite you to join me on this adventure, to share this journey of life with me by visiting the Love and Acceptance Tour page to read the journal entries, look at the photos or leave messages as you are inspired to do so.
Peace, love and acceptance,

Original Intro written in March 2004:
Over the past two years I have been going through a major transformation, realigning my lifestyle, core beliefs and values with who I truly am. This lead to a recent trip to Mexico where I had plenty of time to think and grow, stripping away layers to reveal Me, and to begin living the life I was born to live.
Over the course of this time, I made a conscious choice to tune in to and listen to my intuition more acutely, developing trust in My Self and my inner voice. In doing this, I continue to experience new levels of awareness, insights, thoughts and ideas which guide me to make choices for my life and myself. I have discovered that the more true to My Self I am, so is my experience of life - of peace, love, clarity and joy. And most importantly, the closer I am to living my purpose on Earth.
Which brings me to the reason you are reading this.
The personal growth and spiritual work I have been doing has guided me to move my “home” base back to Ottawa after 13 years in Vancouver. During a quiet moment in the car with my roommate two weeks back, I thought about the logistics of moving my belongings across the country. I received a message (from my inner voice) and it became obviously clear that I should ride my bike home - right across the country. I have travelled many countries, but my own less than any! What a perfect way to get to know the people and places of my homeland, spend time outdoors, and to honour the athlete and the adventurer in me. And so, the Love and Acceptance Tour was born.
Why the name Love and Acceptance? In its essence the idea stems from a desire for a more peaceful, loving and accepting world and to spread love and acceptance by Being this. It also references an essay I wrote in grade 9 regarding my thoughts on World Peace. You can read the first entry below for more thoughts about love and acceptance.
The tour is in the early planning stages and with the help and advice of a few angels, I should be ready to begin the journey in early June. Although it could take as little as a month and a half, I have no idea how long it will take me as I am not planning a rigorous schedule, but more a live life moment to moment and see where it takes me attitude. I will share my thoughts, lessons, insights and experiences with you by keeping a journal right here. Hopefully I will have a digital camera by then so that I will easily be able to upload photos to accompany my writing.
Thank you for visiting my page, and for Being a part of my life.
Live your dream.
