What Do You Do?

What’s the first question most people ask you when you meet?

It’s likely, “What do you do?”

Well, there I was on a Sunday afternoon attending a friends BBQ when someone asked me just that.

Not even sure if the person cared in the first place, I spent the next ten minutes explaining what I did.

As I walked away to make a plate of food, I realised my whole identity was wrapped up in my job. 

There I was, 29 yrs old and in the prime of my life and yet had no idea who I really was. 

While my job was exciting and involved international travel, surely there had to be more to me than my job. 

It was in that moment that I made it a priority to get to know me.

I started reading more books, playing tennis, taking salsa dancing classes and even took up pole dancing classes with a group of friends from work for a bit of a laugh! (and boy did we laugh!)

I've since realised that discovering who I am and my purpose in this world is a non-negotiable for me.

It's no wonder that now I help women discover their destiny and purpose in this physical world.

Since that BBQ, I moved on from my first marriage, left my job, started a business, remarried and had two healthy beautiful children.

Every crossroad, every decision has brought me closer to discovering who I am. 

As I look back and join the dots I know with every bone in my body that this is my path. 

Empowering women to uncover who they really are, to help them surrender to the rhythm of life, to know the legacy they want to create and helping them live every day authentically aligned is my soul's purpose.

So what would you say if you were asked, "So what do you do?"

Are you happy with the response or do you feel like you're skimming the surface?

Many people force themselves out of bed to live the same day again and again and call it a life. 

If you don't know who you are and claim it, you will look to others for permission to be who you think you might be.

I want each woman to be relentless in her pursuit of discovering who she is, for her to find her voice, speak her truth and live a wholehearted life.

A year from now what do you wish you'd started today?
