When I started my Instagram journey six months ago, I had an idea of what I wanted to achieve with it, but I could never have imagined the incredible doors it would open for me. Nor could I have imagined the amount of people I could reach and connect with in such a short period of time. Reaching 20k followers today is a milestone I set for myself in Italy back in September when I had just 3000 followers, but I honestly didn’t think it would happen so quickly! I’m so happy to share some of the journey of my life with all of you. And the thoughtful, beautiful and often moving messages and comments I receive from you each day mean a lot to me. I wish I could reply to all of them, and I do try, but just know that I read them all and they warm my heart. So I’ve been doing pull-ups to mark each follower milestone, but I realized I can’t do 20 genuine form pull-ups! So I decided to mark this occasion with something else. I’ve posted a LOT of stories of me jumping in the ocean in Australia, and I really miss it. So I jumped into a lake near my apartment here in Munich this morning and it was -5 degrees Celsius outside so it definitely woke me up! Actually I loved it, so I’m going to make it a regular morning routine when I’m in Munich this winter. Sorry I didn’t set my camera angle right so I swam off camera, but you get the idea. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤣 Thank you again for sharing this journey with me. As a wise man I met recently shared with me, “A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles.” And I’m so grateful! ✨☺️🎉❤️
