Never ignore the callings of your heart and soul.
And yet I still struggle with this...
After promising myself a trip to Bali for my 40th to heed the long time call to go, I skimped out on my own promise citing finances and classes as reasons for the timing not being right. Only to regret it later and eventually biting the bullet. So I'm all booked to go just before Christmas. And after a very heart-full and busy year, I must say my heart and soul are craving this little sabbatical to recharge my batteries with yoga, green smoothies, lots of massages and down time.
Once you learn the lesson its time to learn it well, so I'm heeding another calling I have to find ways to be of greater service in the world and to give back. I have decided to travel with hand luggage only, which allows me to use all 23kg of check-in luggage to fullfil as much of the Bali Kids wishlist as I can.
Bali Kids are a charity and medical facility established to help the kids of the many orphanages and low income earners of Bali, who are unable to afford medical costs when they are ill. They have a long list of "urgently" needed items on their wishlist (below) which I feel I could possibly fit into my suitcase.
So I kind of got to wondering...
CAN YOU HELP?
In the spirit of Christmas and giving to those less fortunate, I am reaching out to the PY community to see if anyone can help with any of these items. Maybe you have access to some of these items you can donate, or have some old babies clothes or toys you've been meaning to give away.
I'd love to hear from you if you do.
I leave on the 16th so any support before then would be greatly appreciated.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanking you always for being here,
