In January 2014 I quit my job, sacked my clients, shut down my digital marketing business and spent every cent I had volunteering in the Philippines Visayan region following Typhoon Yolanda.
I returned home obsessed, changed, uplifted and depressed all at the same time.
I sold stuff, played music in the streets (you may call this busking), borrowed money and received donations from family, friends and even complete strangers.
Somehow I did three trips to the Philippines in 2014; what a year!
how does my life look now?
Having rid myself of all but a few material possessions, I travel this earth playing music in the street and writing the stories of the people and the places I see.
I am here to love the people I meet, play music, learn, help as many people as I can, tell their stories and, take my time.
It’s late January and I am headed to Mission Beach via Byron Bay via Gold Coast Hinterland. It’s my annual catch up with my BFF Jac and then onto my beloved FNQ. Catching up with a few long but never lost friends along the way.
It’s nice to finally be who I always was.
I was reading today that the opposite of courage is not cowardliness, it is actually conformity.
I don’t know that any of this is courageous I just want it to be real.
