How to “Get Lucky”

Become a Serendipidist

Part 1 of 3-Part Series: Getting Lucky – Becoming a Serendipitist This post is part one of a three-part series on Creating from Spirit – our journey from Serendipity to Synchronicity to Story. And as we shared stories of magic on our journey, people would line up after our presentations to ask us, “Can you teach me? How did you do what you did? Why are you ladies so…lucky?” We thought we’d share our own awareness-awakening – how we literally, and figuratively – journeyed from getting lucky, to being lucky, to creating our own luck. Have you ever met Lady … Read More

We’re coming out!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? - Marianne Williamson

2 weeks ago, we sent out an online survey asking you how your friends introduce you, and how you’d prefer to be introduced. 90% of you who responded actually prefer your friends to introduce you differently. You’d felt unrepresented or under-represented by those introductions. Thank you for sharing that with us. Because we’ve been struggling with the same issue for the last 6 months. You probably know us as: “Tay and Val, the award-winning filmmakers who’ve cycled/traveled around the world to document people’s dreams, hopes and aspirations.” Yet on our paths, we’ve grown, changed, and evolved. We yearn to represent … Read More

An unexpected question

"You're a human being, not a human doing."

It’s been a month since we last wrote a post. We’ve taken that time to rest, rejuvenate, and reconnect – to ourselves, our why, our source. For the last 5 years, we’ve been traveling around the world asking people one question: “What’s your dream?” Reconnecting with ourselves prompted us to ask a different question today. An unexpected, yet equally relevant question: Are you a human, or a human being? You see, we ended our hiatus with a business planning retreat. And what came out of it was a priority shift – from doing doing doing – to being. As amazing … Read More

I waited 37 years to feel this way

Celebrate Life

I started my “WHO AM I?” journey when I was 28. I questioned my purpose on this planet. “There must be more than this.” I really wanted to change the world. Through my work as a media maker, I knew I was sorta doing it. But it didn’t feel right. I didn’t feel fulfilled. There was always an internal struggle. “Am I doing enough?” Despite having one of the most privileged careers in the world as a Producer and Director for (inter)national television programs, despite having a powerful medium to amplify personal voices and shape public perspectives, despite having the responsibility of … Read More

The only difference you can really make

Luo_Papa_-_the_man_who_inspired_our_cause

Is the difference for yourself. We’ve been asked countless times: “Why did you begin this journey?” We were inspired by a man – his boundless energy, the spring in his footsteps, and the twinkle in his eyes. We wanted to have what he had. We wanted to know – what did he do so differently, that gave him the life he’s living? Watch the story that has inspired us, and thousands others around the world: Luo Papa said it very clearly, “Even if the BnB did not work out, I’d still have fulfilled my dream of living in a train … Read More
