I think I’ve been here before

Last night I was where my mum was 30 years ago. My mum was filled with excitement as she watched her me go through the big sliding doors at Melbourne international airport. Excited for whatever path her only daughter went on, as she set off to travel the world. At that time I didn’t think about how my mum felt then as she watched the back of me disappear and those doors closed for she was not sure how long. I never thought about how she felt as she went home that night. My head was in the clouds, excited beyond words for what was to come. Tonight I have just watched my son this disappear through those very same doors that I went through 30 years ago. He’s excited to say the least. I am excited, over the moon for him. Having had the same experience. I know what magic he is in for. I feel so much love & happiness for him. I am fighting back the tears as I give him one last cuddle before he goes through the doors. I turn to leave, I am reveling in his happiness, but feeling, mmmm, I won’t say sad, maybe a little wistful. So, this is how my mum felt. 🙂 But with all of that i wish to say to you Kade, there is no better classroom in life then travel. Embrace every moment, learn, appreciate and take enormous pleasure in all your adventures, make magic, drink beer, eat different foods, experience new cultures, chat with people you don’t know, laugh with people you have nothing in common with, take in all the sites, relish in the worlds history, find yourself in the world. Listen to people’s stories. One of life’s most pleasureable things for me is traveling and meeting people, I love meeting & talking to people, hearing their stories. From the bottom of my heart I hope your travel experience is more wonderful, more memorable and more special than mine was and that believe me, is saying something. You take with you a piece of my heart with all the love and beautiful wishes I have to give. I love you to the moon and back. Be safe and travel happy and look out for each other. You will be missed muchly ❤️❤️❤️
My motto travel as much as you can, travel as far as you can and travel as long as you can. Life is not meant to be lived in one place. Go be fabulous both of you!

I have reached my fabulous 50s. Guess what, it’s okay. 20 years in the health and wellness industry. Educating men and women on the importance of nourishing their bodies with good food, moving with integrity, recharging their energy levels and empowering their minds. I love my job. A mother of two boys who are now men and my greatest achievement. A lover of words, an aspiring author with a book written and no idea where to go next, a poet who writes from the heart and her vulnerability. A foodie who loves to experiment, a salad lover , But not just your Every day salad, I throw in anything you can think of it ends up in my salad. I have a reputation for making the greatest weirdest salads around. As a total contradiction, I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I rescue abandoned souls in the bodies of dogs, an animal lover, Who sometimes likes animals more than humans. My teacher in life, my mother never ceases to amaze me. I am one fortunate human being who is filled with gratitude for the life she lives.
