New beginnings & Endings…
I fall in love with every country I visit… Nepal, India, Bali, and currently Australia…I realise I have not just fallen in love with the country, I have fallen in love with life, and in doing so I have fallen in love with my own life!
The month of May brings a month of many birthdays around me and this year it has been more significant as I turned 50! For the last six months I have been traveling in Nepal, India, Bali and now I am in Sydney, Australia. It wasn’t planned that I would be here for my birthday but I found myself here house sitting in the Northern Beaches. It is a truly beautiful spot, full of sandy beaches, coffee shops and a laid back atmosphere, so all my needs are catered, only one thing I am alone, having left all my friends and family in the UK. I couldn’t wish for a better view though, sunrise and sunset, sunshine or rain it is a great spot to be.
I love the number One: the beginning, the leading number, being number One has such positive connotations. This month will be a month of many firsts for me besides turning 50. I am setting up my first blog www.travelwithalice.com and therefore writing my very first blog post. I have joined an online course to assist me and making the step out of my comfort zone into the world of blogging. Let’s hope I don’t live to regret it!
Lately, I have come to celebrate the 1st of every month, as it reminds me to start the month on a positive note and set my intentions for the month, a stepping stone towards creating my new life.
The number one reminds me of universal oneness and inter-connectedness. On this first blog I want to celebrate one special person in my life – who happened to be instrumental in my birth too, my Dad. He would have been 85 years old today the 18th May but died aged 66 back in 1999. I am offering a free e-book to my all my new subscribers. I created the book from the story my sister Christine Readman wrote about our dad’s passing to help the then young members of our family to come to terms with the loss of their granddad, you might find it helpful for yourself or someone you know who has lost a loved one.

I have recently joined a 30DC creative clinic with the author John Williams it’s been on my to do list since June 2016 when I posted the cover on my Instagram account to remind me. So on the 1st of May 2017 to coinside with my turning 50 i started the course. I was inspired to read his book Screw Work Lets Play and Screw Work Break Free when I found myself yet again needing to reinvent myself and do something new.
I was so enthused by the book I told lots of people about it especially those in jobs or situations that was slowly draining them of their enthusiasm for life. Well, here I am not only doing his online course and feeling totally inspired by the community he creates around it but working on creating a new life and freedom for myself.
The free e-book Once upon a time.. will be emailed to you after you have subscribed to the mailing list below.
Love and magical new beginnings,
