I’m writing my new book and I was reflecting back on life over the last couple of years. 

Something big I learned is the importance of community and the importance of those that surround ourselves with. It was Jim Rohn who said, “You’re the average of the five people spend the most time with.” 

This is a pic of five of the crew, of now more than 2700 fellow surfer girls on the Gold Coast that I hang with. The life, the work experience and diversity in this group would blow your mind. 

What I know for sure is that helping co-create this community of surfer girls changed my life. Hanging with them the last couple of years, became a vital part of my own mental health support and wellness strategy. 

Like us, nature is constantly evolving not stagnant. If what you are doing and who you are hanging with is not feeding you life… get out or adapt. I’m serious. 

I have flourished when it got tough the last couple of years because I surrounded myself with a life that supported me. A life that included this crew of legendary surfer chicks and so many others that I love dearly. 

Why do I share this? It’s Sunday night and I know that many of you are heading into this week thinking to yourselves, is this as good as it gets?

AND that’s good because, questioning and noticing how you feel is the first step to bringing change. 

I reinvented myself and rewrote my life story in my 20’s when I burned out and again over the last two years. I promise if I can do it. You can too.
