my unplanned life
I love being Australian, travelling, cooking and taking photos, but most of all, I love being creative. You can read more of my backstory here.
Being creative is not a choice. It's a calling. I was off track, and for me, it was like parts of my soul were missing.
Then one day, the setting was perfect, and my mind and heart were open, a catalyst put a fire in my belly. My daughter Georgia was in India and I went to join her for a five week adventure. Early one morning at dawn, I was sitting on a veranda of an old palace converted into the hotel Devi Garh. It was a misty and the sun was rising over the village below. I was lying on an old iron daybed, and a tray of chai tea had just been brought to me.
I watched a bird land on the balcony, and it was as if it had a message for me. 'Things were about to change".
As delusional as the idea seemed, my curiosity pulled me forward, when I got home and started to play around with a project idea I'd had for a while, but I was so far out of my comfort zone; it was really scary. I didn't care, I was going to keep going anyway. After all a little birdy told me, I could do it.
My big ideas, it seem so much easier in my head than real life. I wanted to start 'something online' I knew I was clueless and had so much to learn. So I rolled up my sleeves and started, like many other people with crazy ideas, I had to teach myself. After a huge time investment, online courses and trial and error, I eventually became capable of making a site and how to do content creation.
Now it's years later, I'm not so far 'out of my comfort zone' and apart from random flashes of imposter syndrome that seem to plague all creatives, I feel I'm making good progress. I share the best lessons I've learned, and what I'm still learning.
My choice of using curation is an interesting method of sharing awesome people I've discovered, tips and tools that inspire me. Plus the courses I create is my way to help creatives value their gift and take care of themselves, plus it is filling up my soul!
