“And when I see people coming here from overseas who just do what they already know, you get stuck doing only one thing. You learn by saying I’m going to try this thing I don’t know.”~Jalene, Chapter 1, Middlevale High
Since getting back from holiday, my eyes have been reopened to a sense of possibility.
Being on holiday was a brain bender and head clearer, but what I noticed most – other than the pretty buildings of London and how sunshine really does improve any city – was how great it felt to try new experiences and meet new people.
I landed back with twenty four hours to get over my jetlag and maybe this was the fuel for spontaneously booking a coffee roastery tour and a dance workshop for my first week back in Melbourne .
This week I’m saying yes to: putting my hand up to share at a storytelling night, beginning a collaborative music project (with someone I met last week at the dance workshop!) and taking a tour to see three potential opportunities for the new year.
