As I walk out the back sliding glass doors of my room I notice many gardeners trimming back the plants and neatening the garden beds.
This place is exquisite.
I meander around the gardens, pool and beach, emotionally struck by its splendour and peace. I appear to be the only guest up; all I notice around me are the workers preparing for the new day.
Whoever created this place had an insight of heaven. Tears well up within me as I am transported to a place I have never experienced here on earth.
Wow… How does one express such amazing balance? Birds are chirping and I hear the water flowing from the pool. It’s quietly breathtaking. I want to cry at its beauty. I feel joy well up within my chest.
No wonder my senses brought me here in a random act of bravery and leap of faith. I have left earth, responsibilities, what I had become so accustomed to, and gone on a vacation to heaven.
With all that I have left behind and all that I have cleared from my soul, I get to journey to the final parts of self, gathering my new ways of existence along the way.

This year has certainly been a whirlwind adventure for me. Turning 50 gifted me with not only a few more wrinkles, but also some new adventures and travel. Exploring new places, countries and destinations is my absolute passion.
Interestingly I have made some 'new friends' this year. Some ‘tree folk’ planted across the globe and they have shifted my awareness....
I never set out for these connections and ignored this ability for some time. Then I realised it was the very thing that made me, 'me'. Perhaps this is why I ‘show up’. It’s something that has enabled my own past pain to be set free and replaced with a feeling of peace and love.
Over the weekend I held a stand at the Mind Body Spirit Festival in Melbourne. Each year I set a different intention when I do this. This year I set the intent of holding space for another. This was great practice for my trip to Senegal, Africa in February next year with Business Chicks and The Hunger Project
