I Have a Question

Why is it that when we are children, we are taught that we can be whatever we want to be, that the world is our oyster, that the only limits to what we can do is our imagination?

Why is it that as we get older, we are taught to do something practical, you can’t live on dreams, and that following our passions comes only after chasing the cash?

Sometimes it is a matter of luck, sometimes of circumstance, sometimes of motivation. But what if, despite it all, the possibilities are endless, the future is in our hands, and we have the ability to shape it?

Think of JK Rowling, Dolly Parton, Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs and Jack Ma; humble beginnings to household names.

What if we can make it, like they did?

#Awkward

I think I made a moment awkward.

I went to the chiropractor the other day and arrive slightly early, so I take a seat in reception.

A tall male chiropractor walks out, sees me, smiles and waves like he knows me; I look at him in confusion and quickly avert my eyes.

Silence reigns.

I should have just waved back. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Introvert not Hermit

One thing I have found about being an introvert, is that everyone assumes you like to be by yourself.

But that’s not always true. I crave social interaction, and enjoy going out and spending quality time with friends.

I just need to recharge my batteries in between (yes, this is where the alone part does come into play).

Complex and contradictory – that’s me!
