The world is the same, but I am no longer the same.
Because I am no longer the same, the world is no longer the same.
This path of self-discovery and transformation found me 13 years ago when life as I knew it was pulled off like a rug from right under me (a heart-shattering divorce, a failing business, a depleting bank account, a shrivelling self). Or perhaps it started way back when I was born, taunted with name-calling with an eye defect. When there was nothing more to lose, I was given everything. It has been nothing short of a curious, wondrous and liberating journey. I started listening in a deeper way. I am the result of the love of thousands, no longer the accolades that stack up on the resume (though that seems to help get that first hello!). Where it used to be fear and lack, the place I live now is one of peace, contentment yet abundance and capacity, though still sprinkled with the many beautiful vulnerabilities that make me so imperfectly human. I have become a better observer of who I am in relation to how I see and show up in the world.
I am gifted and supported as needed for the purpose I am here to serve, that of self-realisation and service to humanity. I am deeply grateful and humbled by this alchemy of becoming.
