MILFORD SOUND YOU BEAUTY. I am seriously in love with this place. From breathtaking mountainsides, fur seals and bottlenose dolphins, to pure water glaciers and even the cheeky kakapo got us all out of our seats. As well as having one of the most interesting tour driver to take you around, there was nothing more one could ask for. In the midst of this, being around nature and seeing how beautiful it really is, I got inspired to write a poem I’ve been meaning to write. It’s an excerpt but it’s something.
Was this how it was like to carve every mountain? Plant every tree? Watch each animal grow from childhood to adulthood? How was it when you placed each drop of water to the earth and to see each glacier from the winter turn to pure waters that bring life from those under it? How did you make the wind blow in every direction yet manage to breathe in life to us? In every day I wake, how is it like to shape each clouds in the sky and provide the whole world a different scenery where they reside? What was it like to give each star their brilliance so that you could make those who spectate it see the grandeur and wonder what or who else is up there in that great, big sky?
#MLBMChallenge is ‘All Creatures Of Our God and King’ because nature is awesome and grateful for my Father in Heaven who created it all for me. ☀️ 🌊 🦅
I would return again to Queenstown just for another @fergburger_queenstown and to hang out and do a song @cookietime.nz 🍪✌🏼 Milford Sound, day three in South Island is DONE! Last day tomorrow 😭

Something I make a conscious effort to consider is how I view things. Specifically, here's a few of the many things I like to ask myself: what angle am I looking at it from? In what way is my opinion likely to be biased? What impact will it have? .
The past week or so, I've been trying to think of some of the big decisions I've got to make as opportunities, not daunting decisions which are looming over me like a rain cloud 🌩
In a way, it helps me to shift my mindset to a more positive one, which one of the many reasons why I like to consider my perspective. .
What's something you've learnt this week?
Tasman Glacier Lake was one of our first stops in New Zealand’s South Island and it didn’t disappoint! It also reminded us of BC and Alberta in Canada, which we didn’t expect. Bonus - it was only a short hike from the car park to get to this lookout (our kind of hike 😂)
