I credit my frustration with corporate life and my beloved Boston Terrier, Percy, with naming my blog. For years, I had been tired of my corporate job. One day, about two years ago, I’d had a particularly rough day at the office. So, when I got home, Percy and I harnessed up and headed out for a walk. As we sauntered along in our usual way, it began to rain (totally par for the course for that day). While the rain fell and we walked on, I thought about my life. I was pretty miserable. I’d been miserable for a while. I needed to get away. Perhaps a vacation would help?
As the rain came down, it began to pool on the sidewalk. At some point, I glanced up and noticed that Percy, oblivious to my internal strife, seemed to just skip through the puddles without a care in the world. He was happy. Truly happy. And with each bouncy step, he left his precious little happy tracks behind him. That was my moment. In an instant, I made a mental shift. It was time to move forward and make new tracks- happy ones- full of life, gratitude, grand adventures, and heart-happy memories! I immediately took this precious photo of my inspiration, and when we returned home, I bought the domain www.happytrackstravel.com.
Here we are and here we go! I hope you'll continue on this journey with us!
