Here I sit on a flight between Sweden and London after teaching four workshops in Helsinki, Finland. It’s only been 2.5 weeks since leaving Australia for the first time since February 2020 and it already feels like a lifetime has passed.
Where has the time gone?
What was I doing these past few years?
Did I make the most out of my time being grounded and still?
All these questions and more circulate in my mind as my day to day home life / routine fades into the background.
Life on the road once more.
I have been dreaming of this moment for so long and now and it’s here, it feels big, surreal and (almost) daunting. It doesn’t take much to re remember life pre pandemic but I believe we can’t go back to the way things were.
As a collective we’ve all been through so much! A majority of the real conversations I’ve had with people in these short few weeks revolve around trying to figure out how they want to exist in the world today. Who are they now after the unpredictability and upheaval of the past. We’ve all experienced death, heightened anxiety, unshakable stress and sat on the precipice of the unknown void.
I’m am right there too.
My time expanding my wings out in the world once more is about reconnection. Reconnecting to my global community, reconnecting to my higher purpose and reconnecting to my joy.
Reconnection can also mean healing. Healing something that broke, healing a disconnect, healing from heartache and healing the self after a traumatic shake up.
Being out in the world again has made me realise how comfortable I was at home. As frustrating as it was at times and feeling like I was barely surviving, I made myself comfortable within the uncomfortabilIty of it all.
The first week here was hard. Even though we had time and space in nature to acclimatise and rest, as the days creeped closer to my workshops I began to be filled with doubt. I began to feel like I was doing myself a disservice by picking up where things were left back in 2020 and continuing on as normal.
This was something I vowed to myself that I’d never do. Hence reconnection.
Reconnection is my purpose for being here and doing what I’m doing. This feels new. It feels exciting. And it feels ripe.
I don’t know the outcome of this journey but until then my purpose keeps me grounded and is the light which keeps guiding the way. I hope to reconnect with you along the way! To view my offerings visit the workshops page here 🙂
