I'm just back from Bali.
One week away from Melbourne's hustle and bustle into the hustle and bustle of Seminyak (think Brunswick, Fitzroy in another country). It was a wonderful first-time solo trip for me and I'm really proud of how I handled myself in another country, especially when you think of how inaccessible it can be. But thanks to my little motor, I was off, pushing around the streets on my first day.
Holidays give you the opportunity to sit back and reflect on your life and I made a concerted effort to have a few days by the pool with my book and sunnies.
The biggest take away I've had from my time away is that my life is so privileged.
I have a roof over my head, a passport, money in the bank. So many people in the world don't have any of that and how wonderful it is that my family is one that can live a life of happiness and opportunity.
This expansive way of thinking made all that gratitude awareness really stick, I feel like I can feel the gratitude in my bones now, even deeper, let's say, right into my soul.
How cool is it that the same universe that created mountains and oceans and galaxies looked at you and thought the world needed you too?
Now that I feel this way, it's as if all of my fears are just sitting at the edge, waiting to be knocked off one after the other. I now feel that it would be a disservice to the world for me to not live the life I have imagined for myself and the reason I'm writing about this today is that I hope that you feel it too, for yourself.
I hope that you can feel that the world needs you to be you and that you know you have so much already, just as you are.
The only person or thing that is stopping you from achieving your goals is you and some beliefs that you've let have too much airtime.
Now it's just about taking action and once you've done that for a while, it gets easier to be who you truly are.
We all do things for the first time. Whether it's speaking up, or healing, or getting a home loan. At some stage in your life, you won't know what you're doing and that can be a little scary, but you're ok, you will get through it.
Now, I deeply know if I don't take risks or really step into my power then I am not being true to myself or the universe.
I'm going deeper, my goals are expanding and stretching. I'm taking more people along for the rise. That's right, the rise of self-actualisation, spiritual power, and love.
I hope that you join me. I want to show you that you are magnificent.
