Wanderlust | Badger Bait | The SwimmerSep 09, 2022
I went to (well, Zoomed to) a talk organised by The DO Book Club last week, featuring Libby DeLana and Maggie Doyne.
Libby wrote Do Walk in which she shares the transformative power of a simple walk. By repeating her morning walk every single day, she's now walked the equivalent of the earth's circumference.
For Libby, walking gives her the time and space to reconnect with the world, to process thoughts and unlock creativity. This is a short book with a huge message. (Before you ask, I'm working on the circumference of my garden at the moment)
Maggie Doyne's intimite memoire, Between the Mountain and the Sky, shares her story of how she founded a children's home in Nepal, aged just 19... yep... 19!
Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild, describes her as 'a heart warrior of the first order'.
These women are shining, no, blinding, examples of the power love and hope have in creating change.
Armchair Explorer with Aaron Millar is a fim favourite podcast of mine, and episode 51 might just be my favourite ever episode!
I couldn't multi task while I listened to this episode - I had to fully focus on Nick's incredible storytelling.
Warning: Likely to ignite wanderlust in the laziest of homebodies...
As part of my commitment to invite more adventure into my life, I'm attending my first event organised by the Yes Tribe this weekend - camping in the Yes Woods.
So last night I put my tent up in my sitting room to make sure I can still do it!
Yep... I can - winning at life.
[Please note: if there's no newsletter next week, it will mean I've been eaten by badgers...]
A final treat - I wonder if you'll find this short documentary as moving as I do. I can honestly watch this over and over!
This is the Blog edition of the ReWild Your Inbox newsletter...
Im not inventing a clever pseudonym for it, because I know you're not stupid!
I also know that a newsletter in which I extoll the virtues of my incredily fantastic business coaching would be boring for you to read, and torturous for me to write.
So, I thought to myself, what would I actually enjoy writing to you about each week, and I realised it's this: a curated list of stuff I find interesting, and hope you will too, with links for you to spiderweb off and explore.
Subscribe below to receive this dollop of goodness straight to your inbox every week.
Now, of course, what I find interesting might not captivate you whatsoever (thank god for individuality) - if it doesn't then I want you to take swift action (THIS IS PART OF REWILDING YOUR INBOX) and unsubscribe.
You won't hurt my feelings - I do it all the time to make sure my inbox only serves me up deliciousness... bland is banned.
But assuming you do want to stick around, then I promise I'll do my best to make this a great sign off to your week each Friday.
