About Lives Less Ordinary

Feather and Sky 2

If you are a new visitor to Lives Less Ordinary – Welcome!

By taking the time to browse through the posts here, you’ll find plenty of beautiful photographs, thoughtful reflections and inspirational content, as I communicate my deep passion for specialness.

You see, it is my hope that Lives Less Ordinary will help you to recognize and accept just how special, how unique you truly are. However, in order to fully embrace your uniqueness, you need to start engaging with what is around you and relishing the specialness of each experience, each moment, each relationship.

This blog is the place where I share my own journey of discovery, and this is your invitation to join me.

Because accepting that you are special intrinsically depends upon recognizing and celebrating specialness in others, and it is for this reason that Lives Less Ordinary maintains such a strong community focus: inviting readers to share thoughts, memories, experiences, asking questions to engage and inspire, coming together in conversation.

Won’t you join us for a blether*?
