Head Up Heart Out

As a busy Whistler Woman, it is always difficult to make time to attend events in all honesty, but when the guest speaker promises to advise how to find personal sustainability it seems counter-productive to not check it out. The result of carving out the two hours for February's WOW event was simply inspiration. From the stunning mountain vista supplied through the Squamish Lil'Wat Centre's windows as a backdrop, to the regional canapés of house made smoked salmon and bannock paired with heart-warming First Nations drumming and singing the scene. Was set for enlightenment when guest speaker Sara Wegwitz of Tailor Made Health took the stage. I admit that with iPhone in hand I continued to deal with my beehive of responsibilities while listening, but a friend's reminder that I needed this got me to focus and alter my emailing to note taking. She asked us to surrender and start choosing our priorities. With your head up and heart out it is difficult to feel down and you present yourself with confidence to shape the world you want. Always keep your eyes on your own road and don't get distracted by the "Facebook version" of other people's lives. She left us with a visual exercise and advice that the first step towards getting somewhere is to decide you're not going to stay where you are. I for one left with new energy to take the next steps in my personal sustainability. Tara Colpitts Committee Member of Women of Whistler
