Love Of The Journey with Wente Vineyards


I know it’s been quiet in this space for the past few weeks. But as you all know from my last post, I recently got a new job. Although I was prepared for the new challenges and responsibilities I have in this new role, it has still a huge change from my previous company. It hasn’t been the easiest transition, but I know that I these new experiences and skills I’ve already gained are invaluable.

With the new job and adjusting to my new routine, it has given me a lot of time to reflect on my journey. To think about where I am now, and where I hope to be in the future. So when Wente Vinyards asked me to partner with them for this campaign, and talk about my own journey and how I stay happy and inspired, it seemed to align exactly with where I am right now.

We all have different journeys in life, and paths that lead us to where we are meant to be. I believe it’s important to look at every opportunity objectively, and try to find the lesson in everything. The past few weeks, this has been something especially important for me to remember. On the challenging days with my new job, when I’m faced with an obstacle or working much later than I’d like, I try to think about what I’m gaining from this experience. It has really helped me change my perspective.

I know that I am so lucky for the opportunity I have with my new company. It’s an exciting time of growth, and I’m right in the midst of it. I also appreciate that I’ve been given the responsibility of supporting two different, and very important teams within the company. I remind myself on days when it feels especially challenging, that they hired me for a reason. That they recognized my abilities and that I can do a good job. Instead of getting blinded by stress or a lengthy to do list, I try to focus on the positives. I have already learned so much, or added “tools to my toolbox” as my old coworker would say. I know that what I learn in this role will stay with me for many years, and help advance my career wherever it may lead next.

I believe that a part of staying happy and inspired along the journey is to make time for yourself and do what you love to do. This allows us to stay true to the things that bring us joy and fulfillment. I decided after a stressful week, the perfect thing to do was plan a night at home to relax with Andrew. We made a little cheese plate, poured ourselves a glass of wine and sat down to enjoy each other’s company. It’s amazing what a glass of wine and good conversation can do for you after a stressful week!


Like the Wente family, I have learned that it’s important to enjoy the journey. Rather than rush the process, try to recognize that it’s part of a bigger story. Even when the journey can be challenging or difficult, try to remember to stop and appreciate the lessons along the way. All the twists and turns are leading us right where we’re meant to be. 

So have a glass of wine with me, and celebrate the journey!

  3. Wishing you the best of luck at your new job. Starting a new journey (new job in your case) is always challenging but also exciting and hopefully rewarding! I love taking the time to enjoy a glass of wine and if I were not dairy free right now I'd be drooling over that cheese board! Cheers!
