So many people put off their happiness “until tomorrow” or “until retirement,” thinking they have all the time in the world to live the life of their dreams. But then… the years fly by and they come face-to-face with the cold hard reality: they’ve lived for everyone else, following along precisely with the expected, “normal” way of living, but never took the time to explore their own dreams. They never took a chance to think about their own priorities, goals, and passions – or what they truly want out of this too-short life.

EXIT NORMAL tells the story of how my husband and I, along with our four kids, broke out of our “regular life” to take the time we needed to define our dreams. Inspired by a great life shake-up (three parents dying prematurely to cancer), we felt the need to take a break from everything we knew to be “normal” and give ourselves and our children the most wonderful gift of all: TIME. We traveled to the lovely and simple Belize, where we spent six months exploring a little of the world and ourselves. During our family escape, we reevaluated and totally transformed our lives – and now we want to inspire you to do the same!
EXIT NORMAL: How We Escaped With Our Family and Changed Our Life is an inspirational yet practical guidebook that encourages you to consider taking a temporary break from your life, your home, and your culture. Read it if you:
- need time to reevaluate your dreams but lack the time to do so in your day-to-day life
- need to be inspired to get out of your comfort zone
- feel that life is too short to put off your dreams for another day
- want to be reminded that YOU are the author of your own story
- think that NORMAL life isn’t giving you the space you need to live fearlessly in the moment or the chance to navigate your own path toward happiness and joy.
If any of these describe you, maybe you need a break from your regular life, just as we did. This book will help you:
- understand how a family escape can redefine your goals and priorities so much that your life will be forever changed
- plan your break from “normal” with ideas on how long to go and location
- gain clarity on how to rethink your finances to achieve your goal of travel
- approach education in a creative and unique way so your kids get the most from the trip.
