It feels like a lifetime ago that I was writing a blog reviewing 2019. So much hope for 2020 and what the year would have planned for me going forward. A month later and I’m in a state of disorientation with my life. Questioning my very purpose and value to the world around me, which leaves me wondering why am I so easily steered off course in life? Why are my beliefs in something bigger for my life fickle? What’s wrong with me?
It’s that time of year where people are reflective on the year that’s about to end as we allow ourselves an opportunity to consciously reset with January 1st approaches. I thought that I would reflect on my 2019 whilst also discussing my outlook on 2020 and let you know something I will be doing to replace a typical New Year’s Resolution.
Firstly, it feels very surreal to be writing this particular blog. On August 23rd I got back to recording podcasts as I started with Suzie Clark before she set off to Bali (She would be the 2nd episode of season 2) and I’ve been obsessed/immersed ever since.

At the risk of looking self-obsessed, I thought I would freestyle this letter and see where it goes. I hope you can take something from it no matter how big or small:
“Dear 20-year-old Luca,
Right now as I write this letter to you, you’re in your second year at Southampton Solent and I know you’re probably reading this with a hangover. Continue reading
I want to start this particular blog by saying that I understand there’s potential for this blog to age terribly. I could look back at this and cringe and think how I was dumb, young and impatient. This is merely an insight into why I believe that I won’t get married or have kids.
Season 2 of Guards of Eden is around the corner. Saying that feels very weird! If you listened to season 1 of Guards of Eden in any capacity, then I thank you. If this is your first experience with the podcast, then I welcome you. The purpose of this blog is to provide a preview into what you can expect and to verbalise a few of my own hopes for the podcast.
Olias’s dictionary describes Guards of Eden as “A home for the life journeys of a collection of fantastic individuals with the hope of restoring faith in universal good and inspiring others to be great”. Continue reading
