”There’s no such thing as being completely ready. You’re never going to feel like you’ve got everything sorted and all figured out. If you get to the place where you’re just a little bit more excited than afraid, that’s when you go for it. That’s when you go all in. To hell with playing safe.”
–The Better Man Project

So I’m leaving Sydney in 3 weeks’ time and I can’t believe it. It hit me at work the other day in the midst of blending smoothies and running breakfast toasties, and I realized that I’m not ready for it. I can’t believe it, I don’t want to believe it, and I’m not ready to leave.

Would I ever be, though? I don’t think I would.

21 days and I will leave the world of large soy capps with two sugars (to name a few) and pastries to go experience the wonders of New Zealand for a total of 18 days before flying back to Sydney for a few days to repack, say goodbye and set off.

Why didn’t I do my farm work???

What follows is a deep dive into yoga on the island of Koh Yao Noi in Thailand. A what-the-heck-am-I-doing kind of spontaneous (although not really) decision to sign up for a 200-hour yoga teacher training a few months ago when I was desperate to find something “worthwhile” to do, something to focus on, and well… I bumped into an email from David from Island Yoga subtitled “Early Bird Offer […]” and, well, need I say more? I took it as a sign.

Hence, what follows is four weeks of stretching both my body and mind, reaching new dimensions on so many levels because to be honest I haven’t done a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g in who knows how long.

What have I signed up for?! 

Remains to be seen, but I’m s-l-o-w-l-y starting to get excited. FINALLY!
