She used to be scared of...
Nothing used to scare me. I was actually fearless in my youth. Now I am scared if my family is ok and healthy
F*ck this shit moment
I metaphysically burned “my” flag when the UK invaded Iraq, especially after 2 million Brits had said “We don't want this!” And they were ignored. Now the world is my home.
Advice to 13 year old self
Don't try and change other people. Don't think you can solve everything, somethings are out of your control. The mind is more fragile than you think so don't let other people influence you when you feel it is wrong. Avoid negative people they will only bring you down. Remember we are a tiny part of the Universe and not to take this life too seriously.
Best advice received
It was a quote from an older entrepreneur guy who I surfed with for a time. “I am surfer I can f*cking do anything” Now it’s my mantra.
Firstly my jobs have been whatever I could find on the road to keep me travelling, most recently labour work on farms. But currently my time is now dedicated to Surf Worthy, but sales are slow, because we are a new company. So financially, we live now on my girlfriends employment until we are making enough profit with our own business to survive.
