In a world full of lists and achievements, limited time and lots of responsibilities, how often do you do something JUST BECAUSE?
With only 8 days left on my visa and no new visa in place, I could choose to be stressed. But that’s not a choice I am making.
Having defined myself for years with the norms of London – Busyness, Action, Purpose – I’m now having to find myself in a new environment. And I ask myself, is living a content life enough?
I didn’t quite realise how prophetic my last blog would be! After three months of quiet, I’m back, designing my life in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Canada.
It will be quiet around here for the next few months as I get on my bike and join my partner for cycle-touring adventures.
The opposite of productive doesn’t have to be lazy. What if instead we decided it was content or present or aware or connected. In a world of BIGGER, BETTER, FASTER, HIGHER I’m looking for something different.
As I’ve been sorting through all we own to decide what comes with us on the next phase of our adventures to a new life in Canada I’m reflecting on who am I without my possessions and realising the power I am giving to inanimate objects.
How often do we have a phone attached to our ear or in our hand? What is so important that we need to be connected to technology seemingly at all times?
If you were to die tomorrow would you have any regrets? We’re not on this earth for a long time and no-one really knows when it will be time for us to leave it, so why not enjoy the journey.
