Me in a nutshell
If I list my life-forces as curiosity, creativity, playfulness and empowerment -
it is no wonder that I love what I do!
I am not planning on retiring having finally released the real me with calm, confident coherence - does that sound appealing?
It took a while! The timeline gives you a peek into the journey. But - look at the bookend moments in the 2 photos below - toddler to present day. I think the 'feisty' me was there at the start - as with most of us. For many of us this initial unquestioning sense of being is eroded by the forces of childhood, relationships and society.... we need to reclaim it!
I went to an all girl's school until I was 16 - then an all boy's school! I was in the first intake of 6 girls into the 6th form of a big posh school - as a boarder! I played Delilah in the school production of Samson Agonistes!
To mark my 60th birthday I found the very same footpath bars that as a kid, much to my shame, I couldn't somersault over! Yes! I did it!
I like this quote:
"The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are."
All un-squashed once more
2021 promises be an exciting year! My book should be published and my TedX Talk out there!
Not to mention an ever evolving adventure hosting the Make it Real Podcast.
