About me – Passion and purpose

“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.” 

~ Roald Dahl, My Uncle Oswald

A couple of years ago I had lost all passion in life. I truly believed my life was ‘all grown up’ – work, rest, holiday, repeat was the cycle and I had become lost.

My Spirit was low and I had forgotten all sense of joy.

Life had a different plan for me and I was diagnosed with a chronic disease.

Although at the time it was awful, when I stopped to listen to my body and mind again I realised something was missing. But what?

I began walking – every day. . . to find it I suppose.

Something else happened though.

I began to see the delicate shifts and changes in the seasons and saw a new beauty in the place I lived.

I stopped. Took a breath. Listened to my inner voice.


During my walks I allowed myself to daydream again and lose myself in the sights, sounds and smells.

I thought I had lost my ability to be creative and explore but I took the the opportunity to change my life  and find my true joy and purpose.

To expand.

Sometimes we get lost in life. We forget to nurture our inner child and have fun -daydream and play.

My heart now soars everyday at the little things that I used to miss. I allowed the good stuff to come in.

So this is me. Happy again and living a more fulfilled life – simply.

Not all of the journey –  the important bit and I am looking forward to sharing the rest of of it and loads of tips and ideas on living a more slow and mindful way of life with you.

Yours authentically

    1. Many thanks Sirena Herre . I’m so pleased you are enjoying my work. There are lots of on line journals and articles. Have alook at Medium or Elephant Journal. There is lots out there.

  3. One more thing. It’s my opinion that there are a lot of travel insurance web pages of reputable companies that allow you to enter holiday details and find you the rates. You can also purchase this international travel cover policy on internet by using the credit card. All you need to do is to enter your current travel information and you can view the plans side-by-side. Merely find the system that suits your financial allowance and needs then use your credit card to buy it. Travel insurance on the web is a good way to take a look for a trustworthy company for international travel insurance. Thanks for discussing your ideas.
