When is the last time you had butterflies in your tummy?
When people talk about hedonism, the image most easily conjured is one of extravagant feasts, free-flowing alcohol, an orgiastic union of bodies, sensations and vice.
For me, it is refined down to a much simpler concept: true openness to the lifestyle of 'Yes, and...' - that is to say, being open to the potential of each moment, having a total lack of attachment to the outcome, and simply letting life play out, as an active, interested, curious player.
Joy, indulgence, learning, even (and especially) that which challenges us, makes us squirm in our seats, feel hot under the collar, awakens the butterflies in our tummies: this is an invitation for growth, and it is something that I seek out in each interaction, every day that I am blessed with.
Life is short, and I am here to live it fully, deeply. I have a constant desire to meet people from all walks of life, from worlds outside my own, so that I may expand my understanding of what it means to be human, to live with purpose. I delight in the opportunity to meet people who will expand my horizons - in terms of a shift in perspective, discovering a new pleasure, forging connection and trust. It is the greatest thrill and the most humbling prospect to perhaps be able to do the same for you.
So, I ask again: When is the last time you had butterflies in your tummy? and why do you shy away from the sensation?
Get in touch, lets cause a flutter.
