I lived life on acreage surrounded by the rainforest in far North Queensland. I always felt there was something inside telling me there was more to life – that us humans weren’t just bags of flesh. My intellect has always been different to others my age. It’s set me apart and encouraged me to drop out of school in grade ten in pursuit of clarification and happiness.
I worked instead and learnt about myself – no school subject interested me. I launched an Instagram account in 2018 to fulfil my desire to vocalise the thoughts I over-think, the feelings I over-feel, and clarify my bizarre life choices.
I never travelled or explored in my younger days like I’ve been doing more since moving out of home. I struggled with social anxiety, and since meeting my partner in 2020 who has forced me past my comfort zone, my eyes have been stretched so far open that for the first time I can understand my own thoughts. And I want to articulate them in this blog.
I created Hippie Thinking as a means of self-expression and to share my journey of self-discovery.
May these experiences and lessons inspire you, or help you with personal obstacles. Often we can feel isolated, so I hope this blog gathers like-minds.
In a world of sheep, ground yourself and nurture you inner nature.
Kick your shoes off (you won’t be needing them), feel what it means to be human.
We’re slowing down, we’re taking it all in.
