How to re-ignite old friendships after a long time abroad.

How to re-ignite old friendships after a long time abroad.

One of the hardest things, I found when returning home from long term travel was re-establishing my friendship circles. There was a mixture of old friends, plus new ones and other friends I was meeting along the way.

Tune back in to YOUR life.

Tune back in to YOUR life.

A friend of mine looked me dead in the eyes and said: "You have the most amazing life." I froze as my eyes glassed over with tears and my face started to burn. "Every time I see what you're doing your adventuring somewhere new, climbing mountains, jumping off waterfalls or hanging out at the beach." Still frozen as the lump in my throat almost blocked off my airways. I had no response....she was absolutely right.

Whenever you have an important date set in your calendar it seems that the world will throw everything it's got at you, just to really see how bad you want it. I knew life was a bit of a rollercoaster but these last few weeks, a crazy patch, made me wonder if I was going to fly off the rails.

Do you find communicating in some relationships hard?

Do you find communicating in some relationships hard?

There are a few relationships I have where I feel like I can tell my friend absolutely anything and there reaction will be honest and open and nothing else matters. These people, hold space for me to be who I am with no judgement and unconditional love. Do you have these people in your life? On the other hand I feel struggle with many relationships and wonder how to build a deeper connection with someone I want to feel closer to and have a deeper more meaningful friendship or relationship with. Can you relate?

The jump didn't look that high, I've certainly jumped off higher things before in my life and done things 100 times more crazy than this. Yet for whatever reason it still gave me incredible nerves. You have to do these things quick, I thought to myself as I barefootedly hopped my way to the rocky overhanging ledge next to the top section of Kundalilla Falls.

Complete yourself, find yourself, love yourself.

Complete yourself, find yourself, love yourself.

For the first time in my life, I remember feeling so utterly empowered, I did not desire a man or a romantic relationship to feel loved. This had come after a string of interesting interactions with men during my time in Canada. If I remember this time in my life, I'd also started to turn inwards. To start looking for the answers their, to start creating the things I wanted. After all that's what everyone was telling me. Create a life you love for yourself, focus on yourself and the right people will show up.

Comparison - the great confidence crusher.

Comparison - the great confidence crusher.

Social media creates a warped perception of reality. Everyone chooses what they want to put out into the world. If we are not careful we easily fall into the comparison trap by seeing what someone chooses to post as their real life. If we engage in this activity too often we start to turn our focus outwards on the others and not our self.
