Welcome to Switch into Drive. My name is Rachel and I’m so glad you’re here.  I’d like to give you a little insight as to why I created this website, and I hope you enjoy navigating through and get inspired to make the most out of life like I am!


Have you ever noticed the world around you just seems to be getting more and more negative?  Everywhere I look people continuously put others down, often think they are better and cannot seem to be genuinely happy for other people’s success.  We have become a very selfish society, and an over-entitled bunch, really.  Now, of course, I don’t mean you, in particular, (please tell me you don’t fit in that category!) but in general it seems life has become full of anxiety, negativity and in some instances, just plain hate.


I’ve also come to realize that when you’re around negativity, it is very easy to become caught up in it. I bet you can agree. For some reason, negativity breeds like wildfire, and when you allow it to consume you, you become stuck, like a car in neutral. No matter how hard you press the accelerator on your life, if you’re so wrapped up in the problems around you (whether they are your problems or not) they consume your focus and you simply can’t move forward. Sound familiar?


Well, that’s why positivity is the main focus of my site. On here, I have no time for negativity. But, please understand, this doesn’t mean you don’t get to have bad days, or feel self-pity because we’ve all been there, done that and moved on! But, some of us don’t do the most important part of that phrase: Move on!


Switch into Drive is dedicated to inspiring you to be a happier you. By sharing the things that make me happy, and the tools I’ve used or the activities I do in order to increase happiness in my life, it is my hope that those will be the things you allow to influence how you go about your own daily activities. Negativity is so easy to identify with because it is everywhere! But wouldn’t you rather a positive flow to focus on?


Of course, as a committed mom, many of my posts will revolve around that aspect of my life, but even if you’re not a parent I’m sure you’ll still find them engaging entertaining, and hopefully inspiring. As you follow me through my own journey of travel, family life, laughter and everything in between, I hope you can get inspired to Switch into Drive if you’ve been finding yourself stuck-in-neutral. Welcome to the journey, where your only destination is happy!
