A magical trip to the Netherlands - Project Me post 1026

15 July 2014

You know that nagging feeling that you have just forgotten to do something ... or mention something. Sometimes it's a small that didn't really make a difference, but other times it's pretty huge ... Like I leave for the Netherlands on tomorrow.

Minor detail!
Major excitement!

Greggie has a dear friend, Eddie, who I took half of and made him my dear friend too. Now we share him really nicely and we're off to celebrate his 40th birthday with him. Yes, we're dashing to Delft, Rotterdam and Amsterdam for 6 days.

Our base for most of the trip is Delft, living with our treasure friend, Eddie!

The Project Me adventure in this is that I haven't left Lifeology and traveled beyond the borders since the business began. The lighter side is that I haven't ever traveled with financial peace of mind and having a great relationship with money. The opposing emotions are worlds apart and I fluctuate between butterflies of excitement and absolute fear.

It's been amazing to reflect back on the last time I was with Eddie in another country. Italy, September 2009 and our business was but a great idea.

I have come so far since that insecure, aimless girl roamed the streets of Italy, tagging behind my well traveled friends.

I'm boarding that plane with such a different energy and I can't wait to explore how the much happier, confident and trusting part of me explores a new country.

I am going to genuinely accredit some of my calm excitement to the amazing team who support me. I do have a bestie/business partner who is my voice of reason and reminds me that I'm not so powerful that the whole world will fall apart while I'm away. Well, the main reason why it won't is because I have two incredible people helping me hold it up. In a short few months, we have taken on two incredible members of the team and an additional part timer. A big part of this trip is celebrating all that we have dreamed of and brought to reality.

So my gorgeous and very brightly pink Samsonite bags are slowly being packed with dress up accessories as we head to a 1920's party on the SS Rotterdam.

I'm leaving on Wednesday and will definitely be sharing pics thanks to Microsoft SA and my brand new Nokia Lumia! All you have to do is keep your eye on #ProjectMe.

Who knows, I am even blog on a rainy day in Delft 🙂

  1. This trip sounds like more than just a holiday, it's given you the opportunity to reflect and realise how far you've come. That's wonderful! Have a blast, can't wait to see the pics 🙂

    1. You have said exactly how I have felt all day. It really has been an incredible journey and now I can't wait for the adventures of another one. I will be posting lots of #projectme pics along the way 🙂

  2. It's been an inspiration to me to see you and Greg have blossomed in these five short years. How you have dealt with the trials, tribulations and stress of starting for yourself. All in all amazing to witness. Words can not describe how happy I am that you two will be with me on my birthday. Looking forward to crazy times!

    1. Oh my gosh, I'm in a heap, sobbing happy tears!! I'm also in amazement at how far we have traveled since the last time we were over the seas together and I'm beyond excited to share this incredibly special birthday with you. One more sleep 🙂
