My Most Recent Jump into the Abyss, S#!t Scared but so ‘Effin Happy
What a ride!
What a rush.
What a way to live.
I have made the awesome habit of finding things that scare me and I lean into them. It has been the best thing I have begun to regularly do for myself.
It started with turning to a life of simplicity by reducing a five-bedroom house of possessions into only five boxes of essential items to move three thousand kilometers with.
Twelve months ago, I had just reduced all of my possessions to five boxes, two suitcases and a car, I then moved three thousand kilometres, published my first article on this blog and began a new life.
I find I can easily get caught up in the negative—the articles I published that got it wrong, the losses I faced, new struggles, times where I could have done better and how far I still have to go to reach my dreams.
So, in reflection of this huge year of change, I will make particular note of the achievements, key moments and lessons learned for I can grow from the past rather than dwell upon it, and I will pat myself on the back for all the things I got right.
