As an avid global traveller, I’m all for experiencing life to the fullest. But I realise (and appreciate) that sometimes leaving may not always be an option. We have responsibilities, commitments and maybe not a lot of holiday (a.k.a. vacation). In today’s blog I share how you can start to live more fully right where you are, without the need for a plane and your passport. It’s about shifting your perspective and letting go of limiting beliefs– even right in your hometown.
In a growing world of multiculturalism and a melting pot of cultures, being comfortable in your own skin can sometimes be difficult to do. I myself, as a patchwork of Filipino-Caucasian American and just recently becoming British, have authentically learned how to come to grips with the multiplicity of psychological, social and emotional challenges. What I’ve seen and experience, day in and day out, as a world traveller and expat of nearly ten years, is that although connected as human beings, we each have our own unique expression that brings such authentic beauty to share in this world. And it’s up to us, as individuals, to discover, embrace and embody our uniqueness. But growing up, this realisation did not come easy for me. I struggled to get comfortable in my own skin.
