MEET UNSETTLER JOSHUA SHERLAND
What do you do for work?
I currently work as a Personal Trainer and Bootcamp Instructor. I also do freelance photography in my spare time
What are you most passionate about?
I am really passionate about: Art (specifically photography), physical activity / sports, having new experiences, connecting and learning from different people.
Reason for joining Unsettled?
I joined Unsettled because I was looking to shake up my routine, meet more like minded individuals and put myself out there for new experiences. I only learned about unsettled a couple weeks before the actually start date from a friend who had done it. I had no idea what to expect, but I trusted her and signed up that day. I had never been outside of North American and have never traveled longer than 3 weeks. I was a bit nervous but more excited. For me this entire year has been dedicated to stepping out of my comfort zone, pushing my limits and development as a human being. Unsettled was the cherry on top to my “Year of New” and I would have never dreamed that I would meet such an amazing group of people. They truly made the experience for me greater than I could ever imagine!
What does being Unsettled mean to you?
Being Unsettled to me means "Embracing Uncertainty" (funny enough I actually have those words tattooed on me). You never know what life is going to bring your way and you might not always be ready for it. By having the confidence within yourself to handle any situation that comes your way you leave room for opportunity. Over this year I’ve learned that I want to live in a moment to moment experience and not pre-judge or predetermine what or how my life is going to end up. I have goals and things I want to accomplish but I don’t want to let the idea of “my future” to overshadow my present or any opportunities that might be possible. I believe that your present circumstance will ultimately prepare you for you’re future; by embracing all the good and not so favourable moments that life brings, you start to develop into the person you were meant to be. I have a saying i tell myself every morning and that is to always Express Love, Receive Love and BE LOVE. By living Unsettled I am able to be that every single day!
