Me in a nutshell
A late developer who never stopped developing!
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?
The Journey that led to releasing the real me!
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!
My 'real-me' fun facts!
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."
Feisty to squashed to Feisty
All un-squashed once more
