Have you ever stopped for a moment and taken the time to think about time as a concept? Our entire existence is shaped around time. More time, less time, time to go, time of arrival, time well spent, time running out… What if time was something we simply never placed importance on?

“I shut my eyes in order to see” – Paul Gaugin

become more in tune with gut feeling intuition how to trust

You’ve heard the expression ‘trust your gut’ but there’s a lot more to the saying than mere colloquialism.

At the very beginning of this year, I had all planned out perfectly.

 I’d surf at every waking opportunity no matter the conditions in preparation for a surf trip to Sri Lanka this December with my dad. But a broken nose only 5 days into the new year, and a herniated disc in my spine half way through made damn sure I wouldn’t achieve my goals.  What I’ve discovered since writing this article on overcoming setbacks, is that the pain of a setback hurts much more than the injury itself. After all, what do you call a surfer who does not surf?
