You’re at ‘The Start’

A big warm welcome to you!

Thanks so much for stopping by my new little space on the interwebs. I am thrilled you’re here!

If we haven’t met yet, I’m Ainslie Young.

In October 2014 I unexpectedly packed up my life in sunny Sydney and moved to the crazy hustle of Hong Kong with my husband James. (And when I say ‘crazy hustle,’ I mean it!).

Until recently I thought I left Sydney for two reasons:

  1. My husband’s new job opportunity
  2. To grow my designer handbag business.

But as we all know, things don’t necessary go to plan!

My designer handbag business has been put on hold (for a few reasons).

I thought moving to Hong Kong was a sign from the universe that our business was going to flourish.

But I guess the universe has other plans for me at this point in time.

So…. where to now?

I am in a foreign country, with no job, no family and a handful of ‘friends’ I’ve made in the last few weeks.

I’m scared and my mind is uncomfortable. Very uncomfortable.

But as I mentioned in my ‘About’ page, I have realised that being uncomfortable is a good thing. Discomfort helps to expand your mind and break out of the shackles of your comfort zone.

So I will embrace the discomfort!

My Hope…

My hope for this blog is to entertain you through my new Hong Kong life and to make our collective brains highly uncomfortable.

We will explore our creativity, have new life experiences and connect with amazing like-minded people.

As a result, our world will always look new!

So let ‘starting with A’ be the key to unlocking your shackles and lets get uncomfortable together!

If you would like to stay in touch, jump on my mailing list at the bottom of the post. I would love to connect via email!

Or please leave me a comment and say ‘Hello.’

I’m super excited to share my upcoming adventures with you!

 

Love,
