I’m Sophie, the face behind WildMind. Why am I here, writing this blog? And why are you here, reading it? In some way we’re all seeking that ultimate answer to that ultimate question aren’t we? If such an answer does indeed exist.
In May 2018 I quit my steady, stable secure job to live life more adventurously and make a living doing the work I love. I haven’t exactly figured out what that is yet, but I’m having a lot of fun along the way, and maybe sharing it will inspire anyone who feels just as stuck and stagnated as I once did. Since then, I’ve travelled the world, retrained in psychology and unexpectedly returned to a stable, secure job as a happier and healthier individual.
This site is about the things that make me feel the most alive; adventure, meditation, nature, travelling and yoga*. You can still find me up mountains, in meditation retreats, hurtling down hills on my bicycle, publishing magazine articles and trying to give something back to my community. Or just staring at my laptop agonising over my rather enthusiastic use of semi-colons. Writing isn’t that glamorous after all.
If you like what you read, feel free to get in touch.
Thank you for showing up and I hope you feel inspired to get exploring your own wilderness!
