Finding Your People

In this week’s blog post, I’d like to say a few words about finding your people. Because no matter how much of an alien you might feel right now, there are countless people out there who will appreciate you for exactly who you are. For the first 24 years of my life, I felt likeContinue reading “Finding Your People”

Setting Healthy Boundaries With Social Media

It’s far too easy to get addicted to social media. That’s why I haven’t posted anything on the blog for the past couple of weeks. I realised that social media was sucking up far too much of my time and energy and held an emergency intervention of forest walks and ignoring my phone. I don’tContinue reading “Setting Healthy Boundaries With Social Media”

The Beauty of the Micro-Adventure

This last year has been traumatic and painful for so many people, in so many ways. But among the fear, instability, and loss that has been unfolding, there has also been some significant shifts in perception. After a lifetime being told to work harder, live faster, consume more, and travel further, many people have hadContinue reading “The Beauty of the Micro-Adventure”

How to Know if You Are Being Abused in a Relationship

Four years ago, I  lay in bed and googled: ‘am I being abused?’ The first article that I stumbled upon said this: ‘If you are googling this question, then the answer is probably yes.’  I wouldn’t be able to find that same article again now.

It’s certainly not what I had planned for myself thisContinue reading “Cultivating Something Alright Out of Another Bloody Confinement”

A Note On Climate Grief

I haven’t been coping very well with climate grief this week. I have curled up in front of the fire for the past three days, crying about things that I don’t have the power to change.  I want to cast a spell on all the people cutting down the rainforest, freezing them into cold hardContinue reading “A Note On Climate Grief”

Putting Yourself First Is A Truly Selfless Act

Putting yourself first is a truly selfless act. Don’t worry if that sounds a bit strange right now. I used to think that taking care of other people was far more important than looking after my own needs. Luckily, my life on the road has taught me a lot about emotional resilience and healthy relationships…Continue reading “Putting Yourself First Is A Truly Selfless Act”

Making Deeper Connection When You Live On The Road

Traveling long term can get pretty lonely. It can be hard to talk about that sometimes because everyone tells you that you’ll be constantly surrounded by people and make friends everywhere you go.  Whilst it is true that you meet many amazing people when you live a transient lifestyle, it doesn’t replace the human needContinue reading “Making Deeper Connection When You Live On The Road”

The Inseparable Health Of People And The Earth

The health of the earth and the health of human beings is inseparable. This is brilliant news, but I didn’t always see things that way!
