Her favourite quote is:
“Life is NOT a journey to the grave with the goal of arriving safely in a prettily preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways in a shower of gravel and party shards, thoroughly used, utterly exhausted, and loudly proclaiming: “Fuck me, that was BRILLIANT!”
She loves this quote because she feels that everyone should slide in sideways in a shower of gravel and party shards!
Looking at her life and how she have progressed through it the turning point was when she realised that life was supposed to be fun – and it wasn’t. She remembers an old friend turning up one day out of the blue after seven years and asking her:
“What are you planning to be doing when you are sixty?”
“The same as what I am doing now” she replied.
“Do you like what you are doing now?” he asked.
“No” she said.
“So why do you want to be doing it when you are sixty?” he asked.
“Good question” she thought to herself and she knew in that moment that life was too precious to waste.
So she uproot her comfortable life and created one that is often outside her comfort zone and consequently is always engaging, fun and she learns lots about herself. She chooses who she is in her life at any one time, and believes that we should never stop growing as human beings.
She feels her purpose in life is to coach, guide, mentor, encourage, support and help others do the same. It does not matter whether that is big life change or simply a quiet reconnection to your heart so you start making better decisions and chose to live your passionate life. For her there is nothing better than getting that email or the call when things have dropped into place for a client and suddenly the world is your oyster.
She have been there, done that and got the wrong t-shirt, she knows what it takes and would love to be the guide for you along your own personal journey of discovery.
