After my 30th Birthday I sold all my furniture, gave up my apartment and carefree life.

I was a successful Personal Trainer and lived my days trail running, mountain biking and ocean swimming on the Northern Beaches of Manly in Sydney, Australia.


I had all the things I was told would make me happy, yet I suffered silently in loneliness, self doubt and a hidden sense of not liking who I was.

I had success outside in the world

Yet internally I struggled to love my life, my friends, my Self.

On the turning of my 30th birthday i sat down with myself and wondered what might my older self say to me right now?

The answer was surprisingly simple.


I want to feel a sense of trust with my self, my dreams and desires.

I want to be able to take risks, to take up space in this world, to be the best version of myself.

I want to fall in love with this life again.

I listened to the call.....

I took risks - I failed - I learned

I laughed - I played

- I fell in love -
