And you’ve either stumbled upon my blog accidentally (you might as well take a peek now your here) or on purpose (thank you). As the name ‘Diary of a Soul Searcher’ suggests, this is a blog essentially depicting my thoughts, feelings and experiences as I occasionally stride, (and more often than not), stumble through this chaotic world. I would love my writing to allow me to connect with a broader range of people and cultures in order for ‘us’ as a multi-cultural world to relate to each other and form more positive connections with which to inspire others.
Originally from London, a city in the United Kingdom, I have lived most of my life in Surrey with a stint in Cheltenham thrown in for good measure. I love exploring new places and was bitten by the travel bug very early on in life when, as a teenager, I decided to pursue the musical loves of my life (Boyzone and Westlife) across different cities/countries in order to get lost in a music bubble night after night.
In this year of 2017 I am the ripe old age of 30 and I couldn’t be any further away from what I had ‘planned’ my life to be like. I had always singled out the age of 28 for getting married and starting my 2.4 family dynamic which was to be completed by 30. I find myself however, single and working abroad in Hong Kong for the foreseeable future. This has led me to the realisation that, ‘we’, as human beings just can’t plan life. We can have ideas and goals to work towards but achieving them requires us to be flexible and willing to embrace uncertainty and change. I have found that I am not the only person struggling with this experience, having spent many hours engaging in lengthy conversations, not just with family and friends but complete strangers, about ‘the meaning of life’ and ‘what to do when things don’t turn out as planned. Can you guess their answers? Nobody had a clue!! It seems we rely on our own experiences and choose to heed (or ignore) the advice of others to help us along in life.
So please feel free to relate to my ‘soul searching’ journey as best you see fit. If you have any questions, feedback or just want to explore any of the topics I’ve written about with me please feel free to email me at Sandra@diaryofasoulsearcher.com I would love to hear from you!
