The Wonderful Gift of Time

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!


Published author, worldschooling mother of four, and frequent traveler, Domini Hedderman is the author of the book, Exit Normal: How We Escaped With Our Family and Changed Our Life, which tells the story of her family's six-month sabbatical in Belize in 2012-13. Since that first trip, she and her family started worldschooling, took a second trip traveling across the U.S. in a 32-foot travel trailer, and then spent an awesome three months learning Spanish (and making friends) in Costa Rica. They spent two months in Mexico last winter, practicing Spanish and just returned from five weeks in France and Italy, where they enjoyed the magic of the home exchange. Her soul mission is to teach her kids about the beautiful diversity of the world and to inspire them--and others--to live the life of their dreams.
