Waiting to Exhale….

It’s now day five of the 30-days blog challenge and I decided to go back to my typical SophiaWorld style in terms of my blog title: Waiting to exhale. This was partly due to some tips that were provided in today’s challenge. If you would like to see it, please click here. I recommend you read this first, as you do not want to miss out on the flow.

I do not usually explain outright in my blog posts the reason behind their titles, as:

  1. the answer is usually within the post; and
  2. I like to get the reader thinking – be curious.

30 day challenge

Today’s question of this 30-days blog challenge was:

What’s does your perfect day look like?

Subjective Test

The state of being perfect is a subjective test. Here, I must be sounding like a lawyer. For readers new to the brand SophiaWorld, I did read law at university. (Just a little on my back story) Going back to perfect, it reminds me a little of the fairytale “Goldilocks and The Three Bears”. In this story Goldilocks was trying different porridge bowls, stating too hot and was happy when it was “just right”.  This leads me to my perfect day.

Waiting to Exhale

In 1995, the movie Waiting to Exhale, starring Denzel Washington, the late Whitney Houston and Angela Basset was released. One of the characters talked about finding a life or love partner, and how it was a great moment when they found them. They described this moment when then can finally relax, exhale and allow to flow with life. This feeling flashed to my mind when thinking about my perfect day.

Opening Act – Day start

I awake to the sound of the birds chirping away, I slowly stretch from my foetal position. I had a nice rest. As I start to focus and become alert, I hear my “love” moving around in the kitchen, humming, whilst making the breakfast. I think, is he not sweet, knowing how I like to be treated? I can smell the porridge with the cinnamon -yum, yum.

I walk down into our kitchen of our beach house, which is one of our favourite homes. I take my seat at the round table; look at the folded newspaper and laugh as my love knows that I am very selective in when I will read the news. He comes up behind me and plants a kiss on my cheek, then takes his place opposite me. We go through our morning ritual, where we talk about what we want to do for the day ahead and our projects. He asks me if I have any ideas for any new Film/ TV/Internet show. I also ask him about his plans. At this moment I remind myself how thankful I am to life, the universe for providing what I have called for. One being: this lovely partner whom I can share in this freedom of location lifestyle. Just like heaven now plays in the background…

Middle Act

I have so far spent three hours of working solidly, catching up on emails and working on one of my projects. I have been working on a new coaching programme for my fans. I hope that they will be excited as I am. Now I can start to slow down and enjoy the rest of the day with my love.

Closing Act

I have left my beach house and decided to go with my love, to one of our favourite local restaurants. The service at the Asian-food restaurant was always good. We thought that it be our night out from the kitchen, although my love does most of the cooking. After dessert we start to talk about our travel plans, where we will be basing ourselves. With my work being online, and I am being able to operate well from anywhere once I have a good internet connection, this allows us flexibility. We start to think about basing ourselves closer to our family, as soon there will be a newer addition to our family. It is so nice to have friends or love ones close by. I remind him that although it will be nice to be closer to the family, I am happy once our little family is together.

It is so lovely deciding sometime ago, that I wanted to have a lifestyle that enabled me to have the balance between business and personal. Incorporate my love for travel and adventure, and not allowing the time to continue to keep ticking whilst I am in a paralysis in not taking a step forward into living my free range-style lifestyle.

I, on most days, think to myself that I can just exhale and smile and enjoy the NOW not wondering but living. And here is the late Whitney Houston sounding out this perfect day

The suitcase entrepreneur 30-days challenge day 3

It is day three of the suitcase entrepreneur 30-days challenge, and I will be 10% away through this challenge after finishing writing this post – yippee. I find that it is good to acknowledge the steps that you take in pursuant of the life of freedom of the travelling entrepreneur. Travelling could not only mean the in the physical sense, but also in the mind: moving forward, allowing and accepting the possibilities.

30 day challenge

What’s your definition of freedom in business and adventure in life?

Yesterday I described what freedom was to me: being aware that I had options and that there was no limit on possibilities. I also mentioned how good lighting and high ceilings were a must in my residences. Freedom in business is having a clear vision on what I wanted to do, and obtaining the “ideal” customers that I wanted to be serving. So these are customers who are buying and reading my books to get clarity and feel confident afterwards. It is also the people who are approaching me for coaching. Importantly, these customers are the ones who are appreciating the “value” of the service that I am providing. They are recognising my perceived self-worth.  And because of this there is no qualm about the price that is being charged.

As I am the co-creator of my life, I will be the main visionary of my business ensuring that I do not depart from my heart-centred ethos. This means doing things from my heart, not simply for the sake of earning money. Otherwise I will be defeating the purpose of living the lifestyle as the travelling, or freedom entrepreneur. I can almost be at the office, working at someone’s company, 40-hours per week.

Living as the adventurer is sometimes going into the unknown, not knowing what to expect with the people you meet or possibilities that can enfold. I will have my favourite affirmation in my head:

“All is well.  Everything is working out for my highest good. Out of this situation only good will come. I am safe”-  Louise Hay

The Suitcase Entrepreneur 30 days challenge – day 2

Yesterday, was the first day of the Suitcase Entrepreneur 30 days blog challenge and I posted an entry about why I started blogging with SophiaWorld and my new venture GoGetterMe. Please find the post here. I thought that it would be nice to continue this challenge where it all started.

30 day challenge
If you woke up tomorrow and were free to do anything you wanted with your life, what would you do and who would you be?

In my life having freedom is important. This is freedom from sometimes the mental barriers, which maybe paralysing me from going out there and doing what I need to do in order to have the lifestyle that I want. So the lifestyle I aspire to is one that will allow me to travel and operate a business from my Mac Book Air. In a sense I have started to do this in the form of having an online tuition business. But I would love to wake up every day, preferably in one of my main residences which will be in a warmer climate. The sun “uplifts” me and my endorphins love to bath in this. So I would be waking up in my residence in sunny California. The structure of this home will consist of high ceilings and great lighting. Stretching out in the morning and thinking as I am defrosting myself that, “life is great”. I take the term defrosting from how my friend once described her new-born when he was waking up and adjusting himself to his surroundings.
So in terms of what I will be doing for a living, or to be more precise: how I will be living my life. I have a few offline businesses including Miss Law Tutor, and investing 20% of my time into them. With the rest of my time I will be focusing on brand SophiaWorld – my book series, the TV shows, the Talks and the other programmes. This will be a wonderful life with me chanting ever so often, “how can it get any better than this?” I will be expressing gratitude for this, saying thanks to the universe. A percentage of my lifestyle is connecting with my close love ones, as this is important.
The big “now”, enjoying what is present in my life is important.
