Brian & Deya met in Vancouver Canada. After a few years together we were married and made choices. One was not to have children the other was not to take life for granted. The rest is yet to come.

Highlights September-October 2015.

I did not share with you anything in September as I had promised, so please forgive me ;) We have been extremely busy and trying to catch every minute of sunshine before we welcome Winter.

The highlights of the past 1.5 months are summarized as follows:
Once we decided to stay in this area we had to change our plan around our professional development and in many other areas that I won’t go into. Before, we had planned and arranged to consult and contract in the North of British Columbia but the situation for consulting and contracting is slightly different here so we adapted. Now, I have a great opportunity as a Project Manager with a local company, a caring and smart boss, a promising team and lots of room to learn, create and succeed. Brian will continue with his studies and he is also searching for the right opportunity.
We are not interested in jobs but we are interested in opportunity and let me tell you, there is a huge difference. A job simply pays a salary; an opportunity provides with growth in many directions, an opportunity provides a mutual commitment between the employee and the employer or partner, an opportunity involves a greater vision. I will keep my philosophical thoughts for when we are able to converse face to face with you but for now I just want to share with you that we are happy.

Why are we happy? Because in less than two months we accomplished a lot. Once we decided to move to Sooke we began the quest of making a home, re-aligning our future plans based on the recent changes, creating community (by the way people here are fantastic), preparing for some professional examinations, writing my book (I finished and now in the phase of revising), riding lots in the area, exploring the housing market, looking for opportunity and having fun with friends. I am also happy because pretty soon I will be able to collaborate with many more professionals and that is exciting, I like to be challenged and be useful, I like to be a part of a team and create with them, I like to have a mentor who can influence my path positively, I like to simply work hard and smart… and I will.

I will not post anymore until the end of the year because for the next few months I will dedicate all my energy to professional development and adapting to my new environment. Looking forward to making the difference and having a family at work, therefore I must focus and dedicate a lot of time to the process of winning!!!

And tomorrow morning the love of my life will be celebrating his Birthday and look at what I got for a husband (below): a handsome and wonderful man.
