I don’t want to bore you with my achievements or lack thereof from the last 20 years, because frankly that’s just being vain. But if my 20 years of living have taught me anything, it’s that life is fickle… and if I have any true fears (a part from fruit), it’s that I will wake up one day in the future with regrets of not living my life to the fullest.
This doesn’t mean that I am a full fledged supporter of treat yo’ self (arguable), because I understand that bills need to be paid and work is inevitable. And no, I’m not going to preach the need for ‘balance’ between work and play because honestly… do as you please and live how you want. But as you’re reading my blog, this is what I believe has made my life full for the last two decades.
I’m not sure what my true passion is yet however I like to travel and take photos, and never turn down the opportunity to do so. The world is too pretty and interesting.
Life’s too short. Eat the god damn cake, or in my case, gelato. Indulge yourself, just not at someone else’s expense.
Take the time to reflect and treasure passing moments. You don’t know what you’ve got til it’s no longer there.
These were two of my favourite days last year…
The First in Cortona, Italy
The second, with my family in Fafleralp, Switzerland
Every now and then, step out of your comfort zone
I’ve always been a huge advocate for change, how can you grow if things stay the same?
Enjoy your own company
I think it’s important to shut off from people every now and then… and travelling alone can be a good way to do this! It requires you to take a step back and think for yourself. You become aware of your strengths and weaknesses as well.
Surround yourself with those you love…
This one is important for obvious reasons! Don’t waste your time, spend it with the people you cherish and who cherish you.
And to all my other family and friends,
