crafting a life you want to come home to

I had such a great realisation last week.

You see, most times when I’m away exploring the world, I never want to come back home. I want to keep going to the next place, the next sight, the next experience. The allure of endless travel always had such a strong pull, one that up until now I always felt sad to leave behind.

But not this time. I was actually really excited to come home! This surprised me a little to be honest. And it’s probably got a hell of a lot to do with the fact that I feel like I actually have a “home” now for the first time.

I realised I have created and crafted a life that I freaking LOVE!

It’s a life that I wanted to return to, not run away from.

It’s taken time, dedication, and a lot of patience to get here. But I’m HERE! I feel like I have roots down, and I’m living out my values of freedom, connection and love. I love my community, my adorable fur ball Frankie, I’m by the ocean, and one of the biggest factors now is that I LOVE what I do!

I really missed my work – I missed being with my clients, I missed sharing the experience of coaching with them, I missed watching their growth and transformation. I missed writing. I missed sharing and contributing to others.

It was the first time in my whole life I actually missed my work, and oh my lord – what an incredible thing to realise. My gratitude for what I do went through the roof, and I have come home with fresh eyes and a bulging heart for everything I get to experience in this life I’ve created.

I actually don’t want for anything more, I am so happy where I’m at.

I will always be an adventurer at heart, and I also love “home”. I love having a place that’s mine, I love filling it with beautiful things, I love knowing my neighbours, and the local barista, and bumping into people down the street. I have a sense of community that I’ve never experience before, and boy is it special. I have a place that I belong, one that I enjoy returning home to.

And it’s these things that pull me back home when I’m done exploring foreign lands.

Here’s some questions for you to ponder:

  • So what would it take for you to craft a life you freakin LOVE?
  • What do you need to say a big “YES” to?
  • What do you need to say “NO” to?
  • What changes do you need to make?
  • What kind of life would actually excite you and make you come alive?

Dive around in these answers, see what comes up for you. . . they may just be the secret recipe for creating a life that you too want to come home to.

We travel because we need to. Because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity. When we get home, home is still the same, but something in our minds has changed, and that changes everything.

“Julia is a great coach. She is caring, intuitive and helpful. Each session was unique and beneficial. She provided practical ways for me to focus on my goals, as well as resources and activities to insight action – which she then held me accountable to! I started our sessions feeling very overwhelmed, but left having tools and confidence to start new projects. Working with Julia helped get me get my life back on track.”

“Julia is one fantastic ball of glowing positivity and light! Her energy and passion are contagious, which makes meeting with her a complete joy. I enjoy our coaching sessions as Julia isn’t a highly-strung ‘cheerleader’, but the impact is the same. She makes me feel comfortable enough to really dig deep and come up with my biggest Vision and goals in a completely natural, non-judgemental space. My sessions with Julia really opened up my eyes to the idea of having clear written and visual goals for the future. Being able to set tangible goals and lay down the ever so satisfying “check mark” is like warm soup for the soul.”
