Above the old city walls – Dubrovnik, Croatia
You know those moments when you’re in the middle on a conversation and something big, something important, suddenly hits you? That happened to me earlier this year. We’re all different, we know that. The world would be boring if we were all the same, right? But think of it like this: we’re all swimming in water… happily swimming along and life seems completely normal and ordinary. You’re getting by. Your next-door neighbor is getting by. But what you don’t notice is the water (aka your life) is, in fact, extraordinary and that YOU are a rare and exotic fish.
Let me explain.
I did know that I have an extraordinary life, but it wasn’t until I started taking action on my New Year’s Resolution in early January that I started to realize how rare and exotic of a fish I am.
My New Year’s Resolution was to reach out to people who had made a difference to Wasabi Publicity in the 10 years Michelle and I have been in business. These people are near and dear to my heart. It’s not as if we hadn’t been in communication at all, but I hadn’t really connected with them on a personal level. You know how life gets in the way?
Wow! What an eye-opening experience that was. When I called each of them, the first thing they all wanted to know was what’s up with me (which makes sense because I sent everyone a New Year’s greeting from Dubrovnik, Croatia). Most of my conversations started like this:
“So, you were in Croatia for New Year’s Eve?”
“Well, actually, I am still in Croatia…”
