Kicking back in the hot tub, walking the valley trail, people-watching in the village, and enjoying the scenery. Until then, the job was my all-consuming focus Email Database and energy-sucker. June arrives, along with my last week of work, and I'm unexpectedly offered a free ride to British Columbia. How delightful! I didn't hesitate a micro-second to accept the Email Database offer and eagerly prepared for a 3-week vacation. I happily snapped pictures of the trip across the still-dry prairies and through the mountains to the northernmost tip of the Thompson-Okanagan wine-growing region. Somewhere between the wheat fields and the vineyards, the idea was planted in my head to look for work in Kelowna. Didn't seem such a bad idea -- I'd grown up in Email Database BC and had been missing the mountains and alpine scenery -- so I started talking about the idea and getting feedback. The reviews were mixed. "It's hard to get work." "Nice place to live." "You won't get a job Email Database in the wine industry."Isn't the economy better in Saskatchewan?" And, with my background in technical editing, the prospects for similar work weren't exactly stellar. So I steeled myself for the Email Database reality of a slow summer on the hiring front and accepted the reality of accepting temp or part-time work. But behind it all was the desire for FUN! I'd sat at a desk for Email Database years, doing the admin thing, presenting the professional image and subduing my own sparkling personality for the greater corporate good. After the stress of a 7-month endurance test at a Email Database complex job, I was ready to follow my heart into wine country to explore the possibilities. For the moment, I needed some relaxation, so I visited friends in Kelowna and around Vancouver, and told them my idea for moving and transitioning into something different. But was I really ready for that big of a move?
