Whenever I travel overseas something happens.
Maybe it's the long haul air travel, and the fact we have no phone calls, emails, messages, notification or texts coming in.
I get inspired.
Lately I've been thinking and learning on so many topics.
Mastering mindset, the power of the universe and how we fit in, living in the moment, and lots more.
It's a meander down Development Lane - a daily practice - I'm indulging a new interest in getting to know oneself better, getting comfortable and confident with what's on the inside and the out.
At the same time, here's an idea floating around in my brainbox, around wanting to make a more conscious contribution to my blog, creative and fulfilling and of use to others.
On the way to the airport, I casually remarked to one of my fave bloggers and people and biz partners about another blog I had liked, which was of the lifestyle variety, except that of course my life was "impossibly imperfect."
This week, taking flight above Sydney's silken harbour, there was a moment, probably evoked by the sight of the waves woven together into one tapestry, where it seemed like the individual drop of water and the greater mass had all become one.
And so an idea was born. A new blog direction in the hope of sharing some topics that inspire me and hopefully you.
I thought, why not document some of those individual moments of enlightenment and learning, or even if it turns into a hot mess?
So, as with many things I've done - from running a publishing venture to having my own wellness business - it's going to start with one small step.
The vision is to riff on the topics, themes and issues - triggered by real-life experience - and showcasing a bit of our fun, zany, big-dreaming, and often crazy lives in the process.
I hope you manage a look-in occasionally - that it inspires you to dream and imagine where life can take you, push yourself outside the comfort zone, be creative, laugh, practice what makes you happy. Maybe even to learn or try something new, or to look at the possibilities within life in a different light.
I'm off in America for a week, and while it will be busy, it might present an opportunity for more moments like these, captured in the air, on the phone, literally on the fly.
Love and light,
