1 week ago, I took a big step out of my comfort zone towards a lifelong dream, to live on a tiny island in the South Pacific.
This has been my forever dream & now that it’s come to fruition, I’m amazed, ecstatic, grateful, & terrified, all at the same time. Descending upon an airstrip not much bigger than my driveway, washing up on a tiny island far away from home, where I am a total stranger & the size of the ocean surrounding makes the world feel utterly enormous, is a truly humbling experiment. The feeling of isolation / “what have I done” was the most intense I’ve ever felt in my life. But within just days of being here, reality feels like a dream straight from my imagination & I reckon this is what is meant to happen when we choose love over fear.
I am so grateful to everyone who helped me reach where I am, & will be writing regularly about the implications of this wild decision here. I hope that my thoughts can inspire greater thinking about our collective role in this world, our connections to each other & our planet, and our commitment to ourselves, to confront life’s fears & live fully from the heart. I have no idea where the next 4 1/2 months will take me, but this week brought the discovery of what I think must be heaven, & the view is looking pretty good from here. 🙂
