Can We Break Free Of The Fear Of Missing Out?

‘For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.’

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Gwinganna Learnings – Sleep

Gwinganna Infinity Pool

Gwinganna Infinity Pool

It’s now been five and a half weeks that I’ve been hanging out at the Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat in Queensland, Australia, and, man, do I feel amazing!

After being picked up at Coolangatta Airport on the 13th April, along with the other guests due in that day, I was quickly whisked inland through the Tallebudgera Valley and up the super steep driveway to what would become my home for the next six weeks.

Everyday I see a wallaby taking a snack on the grassy knolls, and I can’t go far without being overseen by a cheeky kookaburra (the teddy bears of the bird world, as I can’t help see them) who will be peering down on me from an overhanging branch. Many of the buildings are old style Australian classics  – wooden slat buildings with covered verandahs that add a sense of nostalgia for simpler times.
