“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
What I love about the summer is the light and how nature is so alive. One thing that has come from pushing myself with some of the treks I have done on some of my travels is being able to appreciate the diversity of nature and the beauty of the world. We live on such a beautiful planet with some incredible landscapes. There have been times I have been in such awe of the beauty it has brought tears to my eyes. I have been incredibly blessed with some of the sights I have seen whilst I was on some of my tougher treks and seen things that I never thought I would in this lifetime. It got me thinking that life is too short to be thinking about doing something and sometimes you have to just do it. There will always be something that will get in the way but when you remain true to your dreams then miracles do happen.
Trekking and my new love for walking as a result of it has showed me what is possible when you keep taking the steps you need to take (this was literal at times) and how over time it can build into something so awesome. It builds your resolve and you find strength you didn’t know you had to keep going. When hills get steep, it’s a metaphor for life and at some point you will get over that hill and celebrate yourself and what you have achieved. As well as creative goals, there is something powerful that comes from having physical goals to work towards too. They work well together. Plus, it honours the body you are living in and the living breathing miracle that you are. It brings you back to love and love consciousness.
Strength comes from knowing who you are
This year I will be approaching a very special anniversary where I will be celebrating 7 years of amazing vibrant health after experiencing an incredible healing journey and I am excited for the times ahead. There are more journeys on the horizon I’m sure and creatively I am in the best place I have been for a very long time. There is a lot happening offline to make my dreams happen and I am deeply committed to my creativity and what my soul is calling me to.
I always get asked what will I be doing next or rather where I will be trekking or travelling to next. I think I have gained some sort of reputation with my adventures since my health improved nearly 7 years. I am laughing about it as I am writing now because it is so true. I am always up to something but I don’t always share it until I am ready to share it. Despite my adventurous streak it takes a lot of energy to manifest and stay in that energy so I like to quietly do what I need to do and see where life takes me. Also, I don’t always feel like I need validation from anywhere because I have such a big trust in the Universe and that wherever I end up I will always be supported by life’s magic.
It has been a few years since I have done a big trek and I haven’t planned anything like that recently (not yet) but I’m sure that will happen when it’s meant to. When a mountain calls me I will be there for sure. In the last year 7 years I have trekked the Sahara Desert, mountains of Iceland and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, travelling to America, South America and India for fun, food and personal development, defying anything that doctors told me over a decade ago about my health and taking life into my own hands. It was the best decision and allowed me to follow my bliss and visit such amazing places. I see much more travel in my future but I find the best adventure right now is within myself and does not require any travel, only an open heart and new eyes to see possibilities and the goodness of life.
We are always travelling in some way and being able to look at your glass half full makes all the difference in the world. It’s a game changer.
“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Have a blissful week,
Following on from last week, I am focused on my projects in this moment and it’s been a great place to be. It has been good to focus on what I love in between the madness and busyness that comes from daily life. Daily life can even take over at times but I think if you really want something you will always find time for it no matter what it takes.
This week has brought us the energy of the Full Moon in Capricorn. Full moons have historically been quite unsettling for me and usually my emotions can feel quite out of balance but this week has been dare I say relatively calm compared to other full moons. That’s not to say stuff doesn’t come up but I believe when we have clear goals in mind then somehow doorways open up and pave way for opportunities. It’s about remembering to look at what is in front of us and working with what we have. During full moons and most days I always try to look for something to be grateful for. As they say, what you appreciate appreciates and this is so true.
Since we have reached more than the halfway mark for the year it is a super time to think about what we would like to achieve for the rest of the year and build our mindset around it in a fulfilling way. Here are some affirmations to get you started:
I am the author of my life.
I have the capacity to take committed action towards the life of my dreams.
I am filled with empowered thoughts to create my best reality.
This year is the best year of my life.
Today, I follow my bliss in every way.
