I am currently in transition. And it is very interesting
I have arrived in France 8 days ago, after living 6 highly fulfilling months in Ubud, Bali.
Yet, it does not feel like I am "back". Of course, it is my homeland, and I see my family, my friends, places that I used to call home. I am really happy about it.
But there is one big difference this time : I don’t have a place I claim home, to "come back" to, and I don’t have the intention to settle somewhere for now.
Sustainability… A very trendy word painted everywhere in green shiny letters... So used and abused that most people have lost sight of its meaning.
However, when understood and applied properly, it is one of the most powerful rules of living, both when it comes to a long-term environmental vision of course, but also when it comes to ourselves.
It is a notion that really embodies the core of my work with Exploring Happy.
One month ago, I have had the honor to be interviewed by my friend and inspiring podcast host, Nik Wood, founder of Life Athletics Apart from his podcasting activity, Nik is a skilled coach that trains people to "level up" in their life through an efficient goal setting process.
He was intrigued by a part of my life that is not really visible in Bali: gravity sports. As you may or may not know, I practice an extreme sport called streetluge (and its rock and roll twin, called buttboard). It is part of my DNA. I got hooked by these 2 sports as well as longboarding in 2003, and it has been central in my life ever since. I can clearly state that it has been one of the foundations of who I have become today.
Nik was curious to know what streetluge riding and racing with men in open category brought me, and the lessons I have learned from it.
