Trade the high-flying life for this …

We’re just back from remote Lugu Lake, Yunnan China where a friend traded in her high-flying high-stress corporate lawyer’s life for this:

– and time and more time to look back at her choices and write all about it.

It was a huge change going from tropical rush-about Singapore to the quiet of these Northwestern Yunnan mountains to live among the matrilineal Mosuo.

For our friend, it was the right thing to do. Her book’s coming out in 2015. I’ll be a beta reader. We’re all excited at how much has happened and can happen because she let go.

Now…What about you?
As you contemplate your week ahead and the tasks you have to do, have you dreamed about escape? What are you doing to make those daydreams reality?

    Surrounding ourselves with beauty in nature allows us to be centered and focus on what matters in life, and to be become beautiful inside ourselves.

    Surrounding ourselves with the beauty in nature keeps us centered at our core and leads to a beautiful life inside and out. I think your friend has found a beautiful and tranquil place.

    Restful, peaceful, lovely. I’m happy for your friend.

  4. Audrey what a stunning writers retreat, I have the quiet mountains to look at and no nosey neighbor’s to interrupt, but life with tween children is busy and I struggle to find me time. I try and do what I can in dollops and dabs of time.
