From the first minute or actually before I ever arrived I’ve had some weird connection to Bondi Beach and last year when I went their the first time I felt so at home and fell in love with the place. As I got to know the area I’ve expanded it to the area from Bronte and the whole costal walk to Bondi.
Today the weather was amazing so I got up early to take a SUP lesson with Dean and I made a photo rapportage to show why I love this place.
Already before the sun is up there is local people on the beach training, surfing and getting a morning bath. Some mornings there are photo shoots, preparations to parties, couples lying together and waking up etc. About 9-10 in the weekends or holidays the families and tourist arrives, and I just love watching the families because I see so much joy. Beside that every time I’m on the beach I see new things and I get a calmness and joy especially if I can get on the water.
The water is my meditation – I’m in the now and I get a time-out from life and I love it – Some days my dyspraxia in the legs are controllable and I stay on the board. Other days like today I had to have help to get to shore and I fell into the water 4 times – but in the end it’s not how many times I fall – it’s how many time I get up again that counts 😉
Guys I’ll share a little story with you from my life 🙂
About 2 month ago (I think) I got a request from a young guy in India to connect. Before accepting we had a chat and he seemed ok – didn’t have the usual signs as the scammers have.
After a couple of weeks he asked to call me aunty and that was ok with me. We had short chats along the weeks.
Then this Thursday I think, he contacted me and was all about how poor he was and money this and money that. I told him that he wouldn’t get any money from me. After a oh no it wasn’t about that he asked if he could send me money to invest because “I was his only chance to get out of poverty”. I know from media etc. that I’m 99% sure to get my account ripped if I did it so I said no (and I didn’t feel like it either – my alarms were activated).
When I said that he couldn’t be that poor, since he lived in India and had access to a computer on daily basis at home and went to college, he got a fit and directly informed me that I had to have money since I’m working on moving to Australia if possible.
So the end is: I blocked him and is very glad that I’m a sceptic when people I’ve no connection with contacts me out of the blue.
Take care especially you single women – this guy played on all the emotional feelings single women have and had I fallen for it I would probably been in a sticky wicky
