I always enjoy a little reflection! This time last year after a mix up with my annual leave I found myself with a spontaneous week off. I chose to pack up the little smart car with my camping gear and head off from Essex to the Lake District for a week on my own. It was the first time I’d ever adventured alone.
Family members and friends thought I was crazy, “What will you do all week alone? Won’t you get lost? Aren’t you scared sleeping in a tent alone? Isn’t it dangerous”
It was the start of a week that has changed my whole life. I never felt more at home than sat in my little tent on a field in the north lakes, days spent exploring the hills, quarries and caverns. Eating alone in pubs or cafes or cooking on the stove. This day last year I climbed my first fell alone, Clough head. I felt so proud that I had the courage to do it, and it was apparent that it was inspiring to others. The sense of achievement I got sitting at the trig looking at glorious Blencathra, the contentment is unreal. .
I met some amazing people, but more about that to come at the end of the week ☺️. It was a 350 mile journey, which changed the journey of my life and I’m so grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given and the choices I have made. I set off back to Essex knowing I would be back, but not just to visit. I was going back to Essex to apply for a job transfer and was ready to upsticks to move my life alone to wonderful Cumbria. .
Life has a funny way of showing you the right paths of you are willing to walk them. My journey began a year ago and it’s forever providing me with ever more blissful memories. ⛰😊

Are you living your dharma? Is the path you are walking aligned with your heart, your dreams and your values?
Other's expectations, and sometimes their fears, can often so often override our own preferences and desires. As a result we can end up going down a path that makes us unhappy or unfulfilled.
