Have you ever tried to climb a Palm Tree If not just trust me, it’s hard... .
I just spent the past hour watching Taylor Swift Videos for her New Album Release LOVER and it brought me back to my childhood, which was so beautiful and different than it is today. Growing up I used to spend my time singing, writing songs, and playing every instrument imaginable. I absolutely adored Taylor Swift and wanted to be just like her (mainly because she was the first ‘country’ girl that I really looked up to). One of the things I really admired was how she told stories with her Music, but even more so - how she spent time everyday journaling and writing down her thoughts and feelings about EVERYTHING.
I used to be SO good at writing, but for the past few years (every since leaving University and starting Acanela) it’s been a whirlwind of growing a business and a team - and oh yeah, lots of travels. I wouldn’t change it for anything but I do miss that little girl who loved Music, writing songs, and sharing stories with her own little small world. .
This is my commitment that I’m going to strive to do more of the things that make me - well, me. Even if that means pulling our the rusty guitar or awkwardly climbing palm trees 🌴. What makes you, you
“A kind stranger asked me that how to stop loving someone. And I said, I don’t think I’ve ever really stopped loving anyone and that’s the complexity of love. I think I can let go of someone and turn that love into a fossilised version of itself in memory. But trying to repress it never worked for me. So instead, I gently placed it behind glass in the museum in my head. I only access it now when I am strong enough to remember that love without the intensity of the pain and hurt it caused.”
