Oh Hoi An, you were incredible - a fairytale dreamland full of colours, lights, delicious food aromas, friendly energies, and rich culture. Thank you for welcoming me with open arms. We'll see each other again soon 🌞

Another one from last weekend in Penang. How cute is this little girl - I love the colours in this shot...and the fact it was shot on an iPhone 😳 "the best camera is the one you have with you"

I've fallen in love with Hoi An! And the fact I can come for a long weekend now that I live in KL. To think of doing that from Australia, ha! 🤔👌🏼❤️

Meet my new friend, Phra. We met yesterday on Penang Island at a Buddhist temple on Penang Island, Malaysia. He's visiting from Thailand and sweetly asked, "do you have Facebook? Can you send me photo please?" Thanks for letting me capture your kind soul, Phra. I hope to see you again soon 🙏🏼
Meditation and spirituality has helped me rise above and overcome some of my biggest challenges in life. A year ago to the day I was technically homeless, relying on the support of others to eat and stay on their couches. I hit rock bottom. It forced me to go within. In doing so, I came to a deep understanding that I was the author of my story and that I wrote that reality. So, from that moment I vowed I'd never return and and I chose to write a new story.
Today, I work for @mindvalley , one of the best companies in the world as their Workplace Happiness Manager, I live in Kuala Lumpur in an absolutely beautiful loft apartment on my own (for the first time ever at the age of 33), I'm surrounded by incredible souls, travel regularly, grow everyday, and feel loved by myself and others: I attribute this to a daily practice of self love and care through a gratitude and visualisation mediation (thank you Tony Robbins). It's changed my life. As quoted in the book, Conversations With God: Book 2, "if you don't go within, you go without". I now accept that the world doesn't owe me shit, my parents don't owe me shit. Me, and only me only, is responsible for my story and how happy and fulfilling it can be 🌞

KL, I'm liking you more and more everyday. It's been just over six weeks since we met - where's the time going?! 😳🙈
Fourth week working at Mindvalley and the love there grows stronger each day. Loving the growth, friends, challenges, culture, space - All. Of. It. Grateful xo

Friends are the spice to life experiences. Without them the experience can be a bit bland. Making new friends while travelling is easily one of my favourite things.
I met Marco and Vanina (the Italian couple on the left) on the boat ride over to Kapas Island. They told me later that they saw me hop out of the cab at the jetty with a big smile on my face and said to each other, "we'll be friends with him."
It's funny how we are drawn to people and become friends with them. Feeling out their vibe like that reminds me of how dogs sniff each other's bums haha.
We ended up staying at the same villa hostel and met Mr Frenchy, Jerome, and Joan, also from France.
Thanks guys for being the spice on my trip to Kapas Island xo

I'm loving KL life more and more. I definitely have had my ups and downs with adjusting to a new culture. 🇲🇾
Last year in September I was technically homeless for seven weeks and couch surfing with multiple friends to survive. I was grappling trying to make my living off photography after taking a leap of faith. I missed my mark and fell short. I went hungry some days. Those weeks and months are some of the best of my life. They made me.
I had to dig so fucking deep and change my beliefs, mindset and attitudes more than ever. After spending countless hours at the library reading Conversations With God, watching Tony Robbins' videos on YouTube, and journaling until I worked out why I was in this place, I came to a place of complete acceptance that I am the author of my own story and that this situation was my own doing. The world didn't owe me shit. My parents didn't owe me shit. No one else was to blame. I learned that happiness comes from within and to dig deep. Perception is everything. As is attitude. A daily meditation practice ( Google Tony Robbins Priming), working out, eating healthy, swimming, cycling, time in nature, and surrounding myself with fellow go getters and adventure seekers has helped me quickly turn a corner. It really is that fucking simple. My life has turned around more quickly than I ever imagined and keeps getting better. Yep, there's been bumps along the way - my estranged drug addict father died of a crystal meth overdose in January with me by his side. I met him once in my life 21 years ago. I buried him and lowered his coffin into the ground. But, today is a new day and a new moment. And truly, every breath I take is a gift. I'm so grateful for all of these experiences and the life I've had. It's made me who I am today.
In one week I start working at Mindvalley in Kuala Lumpur as their Office Happiness Manager. It's a dream role perfectly befitting to all of my experience. I visualised this everyday. I'm now living the visualisations I had months ago. Life is either creative or reactive. I now choose to create.
I can't emphasise how much a daily mediation with a focus on gratitude can change you. 🙏🏼🌞🇲🇾

When you bust the locals taking not so sneaky photos of you on the train then offer up a selfie. Just an all 'round top bloke I am haha 😜

How sick is this building! Kuala Lumpur is so, so diverse. I've been here for two weeks now and am adjusting more and more.
Loving meeting new friends and sharing fun experiences. I feel like Australia was a lifetime ago! One week until I start work - I'm ready to sink my teeth in! 🎯💪🏼🌞
