Coconut lattes and late night ponderings


11.28pm

Dunedin, New Zealand

3rd March 2016

-----------

I'm sitting here drinking my coconut latte in a cosy, yet slightly unfurnished, apartment thinking about all the things I want to do with my life.

...and I mean all the things.

It's been a while since I've had the opportunity to really have some me-time and think about anything really. Back in Sydney it's been non-stop. Back to back weddings, client meetings, errand running, etc. etc. It never ended and I'm sure once I touch down on Sunday night it will all go back to the way it was.

Right now though, in this current moment, I am feeling so calm and happy. Time moves slowly here and that's possibly due to the fact I have no commitments or ties holding me down but regardless, I am very aware of New Zealand's slow pace and I am loving every single moment of it. I'm loving the community here, the sense of family, the space I have to breathe. It's warming my soul.

It makes me believe that a simple life is possible, that it doesn't have to be all that hard, not really anyway. But maybe I have holiday brain and am being super delusional.

I'm not sure.

I'm also in one of those moods that makes me want to book tickets to all my dream holiday destinations.

....if only.

  1. I'm always in one of those moods to be honest, and "if only" describes it perfectly. It seems like you're living perfectly at the moment, and sometimes I wonder whether those busy non-stop days are avoidable, or are good ways to spend my time - but then, do you think you'll get tired of these slow, calm, free days? Do you think you could live this way forever?

  2. I'm really happy your photography is kicking off so well. I totally feel you though, I've been looking for that simple life for a while now. Happy to know it exists somewhere out in New Zealand, haha.
