Life can surprise you. You think that you’ve worked out what you’re doing and you’re content. Then you start to think, but could it be more? Could I be more?
My road looked set. Everything was in place and the outlook was great. And then it wasn’t. Let’s just say, I needed to find an alternate route around some major road works!
The new route has made me look at myself and ask some difficult questions. It hasn’t been pretty; being honesty with yourself is hard and there have been a lot of tears, but I feel I have a better understanding of me now.
Analytical, good with figures, organized – this was how I thought of myself (and how I allowed others to see me). So for the last 10 years I focused on supporting businesses in their day to day tasks. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve enjoyed the work and loved helping others wherever I could. But I couldn’t get that damn question out of my head – Could I be more?
I’ve always described myself as an introvert and felt this made me less than others around me. On this journey, I’ve realized that this is so untrue. I can be an introvert, but I have a voice that should be heard and valid ideas and opinions to share.
My passion is to help as many people as possible find simplicity. I love finding ways to use technology and alternative methods to bring efficiencies. It’s taken me a long time to appreciate the skills I have which enable me help others in this way. I’m happy with the realization and accept that I can always be more. That was my butterfly moment and I feel it everyday.
