Surreal to find myself in America, just days after its celebration from British independence, as I arrive from a very different Britain, soon to gain it’s own independence from the European Union (a.k.a. Brexit). Sure every country has its pros and cons with issues that people can potentially stand divided. Today, I look to my birthplace America to find three simple values for a happier life.
"Where we love is home - home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts." ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
On the cusp of selling our London home, I’m deeply reminded that home truly is where the heart is. But what does that mean? Well before I answer that, first may I ask you, Do you ever feel like you want a change? Do you want to move city, career, or out of a relationship – to experience life in a whole new way? I get it – I’ve been there and I’m here to tell you it’s never too late to change the trajectory of your life. Gain clarity on your life now with this simple exercise.
"At the centre of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” – Lao Tzu
It wasn't always about Om-ing, buying organic and being a vegetarian in my life. Twelve years ago, in Los Angeles B.C. (Before Children), on the outside I definitely looked as if I had it all - and in many ways I did. I had the financial freedom as a Real Estate entrepreneur, following a budding Entertainment career, owned a condo in one of the top Westside cities by the beach, drove a European convertible and was mother to two adorable Yorkshire puppies. So I was happy right? No. That could not have been further from the truth. It took time, dedication and investing in myself to learn how to steer a better course and live more mindfully.
