As some of you may know, I have quit my job for good and I am heading to Brasil for an undetermined amount of time.
My plan while im there is to integrate into the Brasillian culture and spend the time learning as much as I possibly can about myself and about life. I will be mastering the language, taking Brazillian Jiu Jitsu classes, spending time in a Capoeira school, trying my skills at Samba, going trekking in the Amazon, taking a survival course and also going on an Ayuasca expedition. As well as many other things.
Recently I have met some really amazing people who have inspired me to start writing a blog which I hope will be able to Inspire, Motivate and hopefully Entertain people.
I want to use my experiences so far in life with Alcohol and drug addiction to be able to help people realise that there is an alternative, and that they can defeat their problems. Since quitting alcohol I have had so many people reach out to me asking for advice and help and so I thought that I would incorporate this into my blog to try and reach as many people as possible.
The blog will focus not only on my experiences – past and present – but more importantly, what I learn from them. It will also be filled with some more philosophical topics, current societal issues, and some deep thinking.
The blog is called The Quest for Wisdom which I think summarises my reasons for going. When I return to Barcelona I plan on launching a few businesses, and some artistic projects which I am very excited about, so it will also continue on with my progress on these projects.
Throughout the whole process of writing the blog I would love constant feedback from everyone. It is a learning process for me as I have never done something like this before.
I want to be challenged. Challenged to do things, challenged on the points I make, challenged to find out more information about a topic that interests you. I truly believe that as a society we need to challenge each other more and not just accept things at face value.
We need to stop thinking that our dreams are unreachable and that “I” could not possibly do that. We are all capable of making an impact and leaving a legacy, and this is what I hope my blog will help people to realise.
I would love it if you could share this page as much as possible and spread it via word of mouth so that I can reach as many people as possible.
Please bear with me at the beginning as the blog/website will not be as neat and tidy as I would like as this blog was really created in such a hurry before I set off on my travels! If anyone has any advice on how to improve it, make it neater, anything it is lacking I would be so grateful.
I also have a new GoPro so you can expect some videos and Vlogs coming up!
If you would like to ask me anything the best way to do this is via message on the Facebook page or Instagram – or via message on my personal Facebook if you know me. You can also comment on the post or send me an email.
I WILL REPLY
