Finding Self

I absolutely love this manifesto video created by Holstee. It is a call to action to live a life full of intention, creativity, passion, and community. So this speaks to me as for the last few years, I’ve been trying to do more of what I love. Also change what I don’t like about myself or surroundings. Its not easy as personal and professional pressures often come bearing down, but trying to stay true to self as know this will get my closer to my ultimate destiny. And really, life is too short to be not following this path.

I can’t stop looking at my forty & fabulous photographs. Does that make me vain? I hope not! I keep looking at them as I’m definitely seeing myself in a new light. People have always told me I was pretty/attractive and now I’m finally seeing it. It’s taken me forty years, but better late than never. Anyway, below is another favorite.

As luck would have it, I came across such a studio a […]

Slowly I’m starting to change as since going self-employed a few years ago, I’ve come to realise that failing with a project, partnership, venture, etc. is all part of the journey. And so while I need to spend some time reflecting and learning the lessons from the failure, once I’ve done that, by refocusing energy and effort it typically brings greater clarity and success.

Self Portrait @ 41!

A little bit of love handles and junk in the trunk, but really liking my 41 year old self! The picture above was taken June 2011, Woodlands Beach, Montserrat! Should say that I took this picture as I have one of my mother at this same beach in almost the same pose wearing a similar swimsuit. And so I wanted to replicate. It helps to keep her memory alive. That said, no tears of sadness today. The events earlier this week had me in a bit of a funk but definitely feeling better on this my 41st Birthday!
