I could make Bangkok my home...
I didn’t need to return to the UK. I could teach English and study to be a coach. It was all possible!
It wasn’t long before that that I thought Surbiton (on the outskirts of London) was the only place I could live happily.
The Mastery of Self Expression workshop led me to question the life of safety I’d been living. My subsequent trip to Australia opened up the possibility of independent travel and a year later I’d set off for my ‘gap year’.
Towards the end of that trip I was on a beautiful Island retreat when I made the decision to try living abroad.
Each decision seemed to me to come ‘out of the blue’ but it was actually preceded by a realisation or series of realisations, where I came to think differently. I saw something new, had insights and discovered fresh possibilities.
Everything looks the same and until it doesn’t!
To keep evolving, simplifying and exploring in life, we need to shake up our thinking from time to time. New people, situations and adventures help- from cooking something new for dinner to taking a trip, workshop or retreat.
A great format for this is a Challenge. In case this is a new format for you, they are generally run by coaches and trainers as a free or low-cost taster of their work. A group of like-minded people gather on-line and are taken through a process involving a series of tasks. In this way they get a flavour of learning the coach’s approach whilst also implementing ‘bite sized’ tasks in their lives.
We get new connections and new ideas with minimal disruption to our daily lives.

Having enjoyed others’ challenges, I'm getting ready to do one too!
