While I was in india, although I was busy running around a lot of the time, I found myself with periods of time where I had not much else to do. I didn’t have the usual internet access. I couldn’t blog; I couldn’t speak casually on the phone to my friends; I didn’t feel like watching much TV and even though I was reading and writing there was only so much I could do before I would eventually tire of that too.
Even that period, without all the things I’d grown accustomed to, was an interesting challenge in itself. It’s a wierd experience to suddenly drop everything and have none of the usual creature comforts to hand. So I decided to try something different which is why I decided to create this video blog. It wasn’t my intention to go down the route of video blogging but it was basically the only creative outlet I had. With my trusty iPhone, I started recording!
One thing I mention in the video which you’ll hear me talk about the challenge of digging yourself into deep comfort zones. You might be a strict vegan for example, or be an early riser, what happens when your circumstances change beyond your control? That’s why I’m a grateful that I’ve kept a flexible attitude. I’m not a strict organic vegan freak; which came in handy in india as I didn’t see anything labled as organic. I prefer to wake naturally rather than at a set time which combatted the jet lag. All those attitudes came in handy when thrust into a place where I had little control.
Keep a flexible approach to life. On that note, enjoy my video blog! It was just over 11 minutes so I split it into two parts. There is a third bonus video too with a bit of treat for you if you’re a fan of magic! 😀
