- reset -

My recent trip to Thailand was an amazing escape. A chance to press pause on the frantic hamster wheel of my daily schedule. To refresh, renew, replenish and essentially, reset.
Travel can be a wonderful opportunity to explore the world around us with a fresh set of eyes. It can elevate even the most everyday objects and experiences into something novel or even remarkable. Yet it can also be a poignant reminder of the old phrase 'wherever you go, there you are'. While a break from our everyday physical surroundings can give us a mental break and an opportunity to literally see things from a whole new perspective, inevitably the majority of any experience stems from what we carry around inside of ourselves. 

Now back at home, I've just started a new job in a new neighbourhood. I'm looking forward to bringing a fresh set eyes and a open minded perspective with my as I venture off into a new challenge. Ready to discover, learn, grow and contribute. That fresh feeling of travel need never end if you choose to see everyday, and every opportunity as an adventure.

Beautiful words and a beautiful picture. That's the way ilife is or it should be. Keep that holiday feeling inside you and look to every new day with the eyes from a child. This way you will always find something that will make you wonder... Lia
