Living with Intention and Purpose

One thing leads to another, the years roll into decades and before we know it we realise that life is not in the future anymore. Our life is what we're living now. Along the way there has been a wonderful kaleidoscope of love, achievement, regret, heartache, celebration and we've navigated as best we could with the values that have formed in us over the years.

Like a house that's undergone multiple renovation and had lean-tos added over the years, there comes a time when it's time to renovate. Not because the 'house' we're living isn't full of beauty and is laden with stories we're proud of, but because life can become cluttered and stepping back to take stock and re-set can offer a clarity and simplicity we crave in our increasingly complex world.

A personal manifesto is a very individual thing. There is no formula for what works generally, but there are some ideas and principles, as well as some wisdom that can guide us to not only articulate what is important to us, but to determine what regular practices we need to cultivate to ensure the gap between how we aspire to live and how we actually live is as small as possible.
