When I was a kid, I’d never dreamed I would live on horse farms in the United States, do safari in Kenya, travel around the world, circumnavigate the Baltic Sea, cross Canada by train and see a few other places. All these seemed remote and romantic. Over thirty years later, with my own daughters in tow, the reality exceeded the dream.
Thousands of small decisions little by little created a full-blown and life-changing experiences that transformed my life. Quite often, these were instinctive choices made in a heartbeat without any real thought because I just knew.
I close my eyes and I see that primary school kid with sparkling eyes enjoying a simply act of eating a cookie. It reminds me where I started.
I look at where I’m now and can allow myself to feel fulfilled. All these experiences are anchored deep in my subconsciousness and over time became my new cookies to savour.
