Hello lovely friends! It has been a while since I posted as I disappeared into my magical happy place Bali for two weeks. It has been a year of intense and confronting circumstances, coming face to face with a fellow human being who represents the opposite of my own life values in every, single, way. It is human nature to default into a state of fight or flight in this instance, being able to practice compassion and extract the lessons is the hard part. It is a work in progress, a very draining and at times heart breaking work in progress!
Also in breaking news this week, upon my return from Bali, I have admitted to myself that I cannot have it all. I know that this flies in the face of the modern woman’s mantra however it is always essential to make decisions based on our own individual hopes, circumstances and wellbeing. There are so many personal factors, challenges and ongoing uncertainty that prevent me from continuing the way that I am in my career outside of the home. It has been a terribly intense decision to leave the amazing new role that I had just taken on, and one of the most inspiring leaders I have had the chance to meet and work with in my career. However, after many tears, much soul searching and heart break I am focused on family and the collective wellbeing of my spirited little tribe at home.
My creative heart rejoices as this blog and my writing will now also be able to flourish a little more and be of more service to the world. So for now I have a few of my favourite Bali photos to share, and a more in depth reflection of the trip taking shape!
