Month 12 of my adventure was a time for reflection and planning for the future. One of the things that rolled through my mind was – how do I want to show up in my community when I return?   I’ve lived in Kelowna for 10+ years and have lots of friends and business contacts I’m looking forward to reconnecting with.
