Megan te Boekhorst, Toronto

Hi. I'm Megan.

I brought my West Coast soul to the city of Toronto in order to build the creative empire of my dreams. Never one to take the traditional route, I've lived life on my own terms since 1991. Currently working in Public Relations while rocking the side hustle lifestyle that brings me unstoppable passion. 

In A Sequoia is for those who own being a bad ass, vulnerable bitch. A source of inspiration for creating intention. Be unapologetically true to yourself. Live #thesequoialife.

You may have noticed it's been almost a month since I last posted. Let's say the past four weeks have turned my world topsy-turvy. You know the saying 'when life gives you lemons'? Yeah, life pelted me with lemons. But I'm finally starting to make lemonade. 

First, let's catch you up. I messed up, big time, for a couple of clients. Had a mini panic attack. Worked hard to try to make up for my mistakes all while realizing something I wasn't ready to admit. Feeling overwhelmed with stress, I messed up with my anti-depressant and suddenly found myself in withdrawal which, if you must know, is terrible and terrifying. Finally admitted what I was scared of: I don't like freelancing. Accepted this didn't mean I was a failure. All client contracts wrapped up. Went into work the next day still in withdrawal and received notice I would be laid off in two weeks. 

I would officially be completely unemployed. 

Then I had a major panic attack. Thanks to my wonderful parents and some great friends, I got through it rather quickly. I got in to see my doctor. I started breathing again. I wrapped up my last two weeks at the day job. I began the unemployed life with a world of possibility before me. 

It's a really scary time, and I did bury my head in the sand for a while. But I snapped myself out of it and have started to pick up the pieces. And I have a plan that will turn these lemons into some of the best lemonade ever. 

Promise I'll keep you in the loop!
