Since moving to Bawah a few people commented “Wow you’re living the dream?”...
How do they know what my dream is? And why is living and working on a remote island a dream anyway?
This is not to say AT ALL that living on Bawah isn’t amazing in so many ways. It is truly stunning here, the green is green, the sea is a myriad of blues, the corals are coming back to life and I can watch the fish play amongst them everyday. A plane arrives almost daily bringing guests who get their first glimpse of Bawah from the sky and it is breath taking. They land to be greeted by smiling faces, Indonesians are the loveliest of people. To see guests enjoy themselves is a joy, to train them especially when they are "into" training and learning is my bliss for movement, just because all the above are in my life - it doesn’t necessarily mean I’m living my dream.
Now if I just lived here, taught a bit, got to be more like a guest, sunbathe and not have to wear a uniform or make up daily - well that’s a little bit closer!!! But that’s not reality and after a while I know deep down in my heart that it wouldn't be 'enough' and fulfill me !!
What is my dream ?? I am going to be so very honest as I belive the more I put this out into the universe, the more the right things will come my way...
To own a home that is a home to all. Be part of a community, live and work together to make change not only to the community but to inspire othes. To live as sustainably as possible and be kind to this big old planet that is my ultimate home. To educate in many ways and spread the word of how we all affect each other.
Distance is irrelevant.
A home for visitors to stay, to be greeted by warm smiling faces and become part of the community for the time with us. A home where you relax, chat, discuss those subjects that you sometimes can’t while living in your normal life and maybe, just maybe get closer to some answers. A home where movement is embraced, smiles are necessary and where all take part in day to day life.
To make a difference, build something that inspires, to work as a team, and stay true to myself encouraging others to do the same.
That’s my dream.....
Feel free to share yours with me and the universe, she's listening.
