I live life with intention when I can connect to a purpose greater than myself, it helps me become more mindful of my decisions and how they impact the world and those around me. The pandemic has had a profound effect on all of us to be more responsible in our treatment of each other and by default, the earth we inhabit. My intention for each day is to spend as much time connecting with nature as I can, as well as trying to be more mindful of my consumption habits, their wider impact on the environment and whether or not they are ethical and sustainable purchases.
On this trip home to Australia, I had planned to visit the beautiful and endangered Great Barrier Reef on an expedition with marine biologists to see damaged, recovering and pristine reefs. Unfortunately due to covid lockdowns and border closures we had to cancel, but my intention is to educate myself as much as possible on how we can better help the planet around us, starting with the most important ecosystem on our planet, the ocean.
Setting intentions every day to be grateful and kind is how I feel purposeful and confident about what I intend to create in my life and for the health of the planet.
Synchronicity to me is when all the elements fall into place effortlessly. It’s that feeling you get when you are aligned in the right place at the right time, and good things just seem to happen, like a little kiss from the universe that you are on the right track. Synchronicity is hard to create and impossible to force, but is undeniably the magical element that makes those spontaneous random days so memorable, the force that makes you ask “did that really just happen?” with a smile on your face. Being able to come home and see my family was a beautiful gift of synchronicity, there were so many elements working against the possibility of me being able to come home, and somehow with positive thinking and setting the intention to make it happen, synchronicity found me.
