After a decade of outdoor education, counselling, and long-term youth mentoring, Marcus found himself on the Thai-Burma border when his wife landed a volunteer job there. On arrival, Marcus had absolutely no idea what he would do so he made a commitment to simply be open and say yes to whatever opportunities arose.
Saying "yes" led to helping local communities build over 40 custom playgrounds in 2 years using local tools and materials. This was an incredible experience but building a new playground every 2 weeks took its toll.
In this talk, Marcus explores how we need to tune into our ability to listen to our own signs of wellbeing, and how to tend to those.
