My Journey In The Arctic

July 21, 2023

Journey in the Arctic, landscape, mountains

Last month, I promised I would share more about my recent journey in the Arctic! It was not only the adventure of a lifetime, but also an eye-opening experience that reinforced some very important life lessons. 

This travel opportunity came to me with relatively little notice! When I first considered making the trek, I briefly experienced some hesitation and “what ifs.” But then I remembered, life is short! And I’m so glad I decided to take the plunge (metaphorically and literally – a polar plunge!)

When I took in the gorgeous landscape and the larger-than-life glaciers of the Arctic, I knew I had made the right decision. My hesitation seemed trivial in comparison to the sense of wonder and inner peace that I felt from the scenery all around me. And in that moment, I was reminded that it’s important to say yes to adventure in life. You never know when a “yes” will lead to the best memories of your life or open up amazing opportunities for you! 

Lewis Carroll said it best: “In the end we will only regret the chances we didn’t take.” 

This trip also reminded me of the importance of family and relationships in my life. My sister and I embarked on this adventure together, and I am so glad we did. When we’re caught up in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, we don’t often have time to be together and cherish each other’s company. It was wonderful to spend some quality time with each other again on this trip. Experiences are always so much richer when you can share them with a loved one!

Trip Highlights

Now, let’s get to the part you’ve all been waiting for! My sister and I saw lots of beautiful glaciers and graceful wildlife on our trip. The peaceful nature of the Arctic was a great reminder that every now and then, it’s good for the soul to stop, take a breath, and soak in the beauty of the world around us. Check out some of my favorite memories below!

An igloo might not be the most practical place to sleep in a destination where the sun never sets. But it was gorgeous.

My journey in the arctic taught me some important life lessons.


Whether it’s a business endeavor or a vacation, it can be scary to venture into the unknown. But that’s all the more reason to do it! Pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone can lead to amazing experiences that enrich your life, bringing you peace, happiness, and a full heart. 

My goal is to bring that same sense of calm to your life through organization. If you’re on the fence about hiring a professional organizer, my best advice is to say “yes” and schedule a free no-obligation consultation with us to try something new! My team and I will help you streamline your household systems, so that you can focus on the aspects of your life that matter most instead!
