we woke up this morning to have finally crossed the 10k followers mark. the feeling is sensational. to us it's a big deal, no it's a huge deal!
we came to dubai on a whim, on my whim. we were on holiday & i fell in love with the unlimited opportunity that this city boasts. so i came back 2 weeks later. viv trusted & believed in me. however, the journey was far from easy we came here with no job (no intention of getting one), very limited cash & no real plan. without thinking & with the help, encouragement & support of an amazing girl @xxprincesspascalxx
i plowed straight into opening a company. a few months passed & viv joined me. it was the most stressful 2 years turning absolutely zero into something special. the truth is in all of the 13 years of being together we hit a breaking point. it felt like i was failing on my promises. viv was on the verge of going home. just before booking her one way ticket, we received disturbing news... my parents a week prior had been in a car accident and kept it from us, one younger brother was made redundant, another brother was involved in a worrying altercation & another brother had a very bad motorcycle injury (still recovering today).
for the first time ever i genuinely broke down, like fell on the floor, tears everywhere and i just cried uncontrollably. at that point viv realised the issue wasn't about our relationship. it was deeper & spiritual. we lost our true selves in the hustle, bustle, glitz & glam of this amazing, dare i say 'great gatsby' like city. so, on the 24th feb we deleted every ig post & on the 25th feb with 852 followers we went to the park, switched on the camera & just started moving. the synchronisation was about flowing together, reconnecting & becoming one again. every video was an opportunity to unite and to set new challenges to overcome. our journey soon became a journey & motivation for other people ❤️
