Jo Sharp knows how to travel. With the soul of a gypsy, Jo’s love of adventure takes her all over the world, collecting experiences rather than things. Jo talks today about how her travels inspired her ‘Confident You’ Wellness Sessions……
My first real overseas adventure was to Bali, back when crochet bikinis were the must have fashion item and bemos were the only way to get around.
The moment I landed I knew I had arrived home. There are other places that I am drawn to but Bali speaks louder to me than all the others.
Bali is where my love for a wanderlust life started.
A wanderlust life is not just about getting another stamp in a passport, it is getting to leave “myself” at home. Meaningful travel is to experience adventure of the soul and it is the opportunity to feel intensely alive. I immediately recognise a shift in self confidence and a sense of finding the true me.
I don’t pack my quirks, tastes, fears and self-imposed limitations.
The struggle is when the adventure comes to end. It got me thinking how do we harness that “magnificent Holiday YOU” feeling?
Tapping into my wanderlust confidence I came up with some strategies to help me elevate and celebrate confidence. Too many of us are letting our self doubt control us, putting those life changing moments where magic happens on hold.
That’s how my “Confident You” Wellness Programme was developed.
Seizing your Confident You is the process of letting go of old thoughts and habits which are holding you back and picking up your positive wings and voice and saying a big loud YES to yourself.
Here are 3 simple confidence boosters which will tap into your magnificent you….
- Set a daily positive affirmation about yourself. Own the affirmation, look into the mirror and say it out loud.
- Let go of your inner critic – be aware of any negative self talk and replace it with positive self praise
- Avoid the perfection trap – nothing or no one is perfect so let go of who you think you should be and embrace who you are.
Ready to leave your quirks, tastes, fears and self-imposed limitations at home?

It was a surf scene.
