Journey to Peru
Have you ever had the experience of fulfilling a lifelong dream?
I recently checked a big one off my bucket list, and as expected, it was even more profound than I could imagine. After almost 24 hours of travel, I arrived at my destination in Cusco, Peru.
I wanted to know the people, the culture, the land, and the spirit of the place, but most of all, something about Peru's energy had always called to me, and I had to experience it for myself. One of the many highlights was when we woke up at 1 am to climb a mountain under the stars. Just before dawn, clouds filled the entire valley below us, and as the sun rose, we were on our own island in the sky. It was a level of beauty and inspiration like I have never experienced. It was so euphoric, and I felt myself settling into my heart in a new way.
But when it came to the cherry on top. The very thing I had been looking forward to my entire life, visiting Machu Picchu. I hit a roadblock. Due to a railroad strike, and despite our best efforts, we would not be able to make it happen on this trip. I just had to let it go. My heart wasn't just breaking; it was breaking open. Going to a place where people appear seemingly worse off than you and yet are so happy, at peace, and fulfilled. It gave me a sense of how much we really do have and how grateful I can be for my experiences, not what I didn't have. And that's where the shift in perspective happens. Where do I over complicate my life? Where do I hold myself back? Where do I succumb to my limited views on what's really possible for me?
If you want a shift, you could go to Peru and have the experience I did, or we could have a conversation where I show you how your choices and actions really can guide your career, your relationships, and your ability to be the architect of your life.
