Welcome to Going4Ward!
We’re so glad you stopped in.
This website started as a family blog with the purpose of documenting a big adventure we were embarking on. In 2015 we sold our home, put our belongings into storage, pulled the kids out of school and took off to Costa Rica! We settled in to beach life, then moved up to the mountains, then left the country to babysit a farm in Nicaragua, then returned to do some more exploring in Costa Rica.
It was 6 months of fun, adventure, stress, exploration & great family memories that will last a lifetime. We managed to share most of it here on this site and on our Going4Ward Facebook Page. If you want to check out our Costa Rican travel stories, just click on the Costa Rica tab in the main menu.
Maybe you’re ready for an adventure yourself, or maybe you’d like to gather some ideas on where to go in Costa Rica with your family. Have a look around, and don’t forget to check out our YouTube channel.
Going4Ward can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. Continuously moving, improving, getting unstuck, leaving bad situations, and otherwise evolving as a human being. We can improve our financial situation, make a career move, better our relationships and reach personal goals.
When we embarked on our Costa Rican Adventure we had a lot of personal expectations and hopes: to leave the mundane behind, to grow closer as a family, to open up the world to our children by immersing ourselves in another culture. We met all of these goals and more but also realized that once the adventure is over it is very easy to fall back into old habits once we are back in our comfort zone.
That is when we realized the ‘big adventure’ wasn’t over at all. Life is an adventure and Going4Ward is ALWAYS the goal.
Are there areas in your life where you feel stuck and would love to improve? Do you have unmet goals? I think most of us do but we are uncomfortable talking about them. Did you think your life was heading in one direction but suddenly realized you’ve actually taken the wrong path and you’re heading in another direction? I found myself explaining that a lot when we were asked why we would drop everything and take off for 6 months.
How about that baby weight you put on with your first pregnancy? Years ago. I have that too. And I actually found myself thinking I would leave that behind in Costa Rica but guess what? I didn’t. So I made a public declaration to lose 30 pounds and *gasp* started blogging about it here. Just click on Weight Loss in the Main Menu to see the weekly updates.
So we’d love for you to follow our new adventures and keep coming back to the blog for more inspiration and stories. We are going to talk about things that matter, moving forward, getting unstuck, and living your best life. I’m an inspirational/motivational personal development junkie and would love to share great ideas, not just my own but from some of my favourite mentors. We only get one shot at this life thing, so let’s face our fears, get out of our comfort zones and say YES to life!
