Homecoming. There’s really nothing quite like it. Particularly when you’ve worked so hard to get there. The simplicity of familiarity. Of Family. Of Belonging. A cultural connection to something bigger than one’s self.
The moment I saw land, saw Australia, after sailing 4000Nm is one I’ll never forget. After 37 days at sea I had not only made it home safely, I was given the chance to start again. To look within and shine a light on the pain, the truth, the mistakes and the potential that’s inside us all. Out there on the open ocean I found forgiveness, love and acceptance of all that I am.
An inner peace I’d forgotten existed.
But while I thought what I needed was to be alone, I realised its human connections that make us whole, that bring us happiness and let our hearts soar. A simple truth I’d forgotten in my quest to become a successful entrepreneur.
