‘Glide through life as if all of creation is yearning to honor and entertain you.’–Rob Brezsny
If you’ve ever taken a walk with a three-year-old (and if you haven’t, put it on your bucket list now), you know they notice and appreciate everything.
Look, a ladybug! Look, a pebble! Look, I can kick it down the street.
That’s how I feel right now. Like a three-year-old, in complete awe and wonderment at all that’s happening to me. I just got to spend the weekend at the Hay House Ignite conference with Mastin Kipp, Gabby Bernstein, Jessica Ortner (and her totally cool friend, Sarah), a handsome young monk from Scotland named Sandy C. Newbigging and lots of other young gurus that Hay House (and Oprah) call the next generation of spiritual leaders.
I got to dance to Pharrell Williams “Happy” with a whole bunch of people in Hamburg and London. And I’m actually getting paid to do this. Is life freakin’ awesome or what?
And if that wasn’t enough, I was just served breakfast in bed (a latte and a fruit smoothie) at the London ME, a five-story hotel in London’s theatre district that has become THE place to be during London fashion week. From the rooftop suite, you can see all of London’s icons: Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, The Pickle, the Shard, the London Eye, to name a few.
The staff at ME London is so good-looking that recruiters for Ford and Marilyn modeling agencies should rush here posthaste. Last night before seeing a live performance of “The Full Monty” I drank exotic cocktails at Radio, their rooftop bar that generates hour-long lines to get in. And it is rumored that today, my little group of travel journalists might get a sneak preview of the Banksy exhibit that’s opening here in a couple weeks.
So life is sweet, my dear friends! And I am so grateful that, like a three-year-old, I am still pointing and saying, “Look!!”
