About

The 2 years leading up to 2010 has been traumatic, I lost people who were very dear to me and decided from that moment to live with integrity, in a nutshell do what you say you will do. After giving up on all the excuses as to why I couldn’t do certain things eg. “I don’t have money” or “I don’t have time” I discovered that anything is possible. Life’s too short anyway.

50 facts about me:

  18. I own an acoustic guitar and I am teaching myself to play
  19. Surfing is a great workout especially because it does not feel like one
  20. Music is like balm for my soul
  21. Nothing beats dancing like nobody’s watching

  49. Love the smell of freshly cut grass, the ocean, rain, sun-kissed skin, freshly washed linen, lemongrass and cinnamon

    Hey there 🙂 Just stumbled across your blog. Sorry you’ve had a rough time, but you’re list sounds very positive – I definitely agree with no. 21, and (when I’m in a good mood) the rest of that poem:

    “You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
    Love like you’ll never be hurt,
    Sing like there’s nobody listening,
    And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

  2. The Human spirit is really amazing..we gt hurt and then we find a way to pick ourselves up , dust it off and learn 🙂 I share a lot of your passions and agree with a lot of your list:) Keep at it ! Nothing like living life on the edge 🙂
