Last week was a hard. We were (are) still adjusting to being home in Aus, I had a new project to launch which I had entirely underestimated the amount of work it would require, and we got some really sad news about the passing of Scott Dinsmore. I never met Scott, but I know from hearing Kyle and others tell me about him that he was an incredible person. He is the founder of Live Your Legend, and he had dedicated his life to helping people connect, to discover what is truly important, and how to find and do the work they love.
Last year while Kyle and I were living separately I was attending a Live Your Legend Local meetup here in Melbourne, and it was through that community that I found direction and meaning in my work.
While we took time to grieve his loss, it was incredible to see his global community uniting to send love to his wife and family. His death is a terrible loss, but I know for many people, including myself, it has caused a ripple effect and makes us ask ourselves if we truly living our legend, doing the work we love and showing up as our true authentic selves.
If you lean into possibility, and embody what matters to you, the world will be in your corner.– Scott Dinsmore
So I decided to show up and do the work and live my life the way I want. I launched my project last week, and released the Confused Giraffe. It was amazing to get such a positive response and I am so grateful to everyone who shared my project around.
Sometimes these projects don’t go entirely to plan, and I felt like I was getting signs last week to quit (that video did not want to be created!!), but I realized through the process that you just have to look at things from a different perspective sometimes. Hence the quote on the Giraffe print!
This week I’m introducing the second quirky original. Here’s the video, a few in progress shots and the finished product.
