I said to my four year old daughter, after picking her up from pre-school yesterday, that I had to do some work that afternoon. She said, “ok mum, cos you’re a writer and an artist”.
I was stunned. My little girl was able to tell me what I am, while I’m still daring to dream that I can make that a reality.
I really got that it is all about declaring who you are and being that. So…
Who I am is a writer and artist.
What I do is write about my passions and life and create images of my family, friends and life around me.
What that gives me is an incredible sense of being fulfilled, an ability to spend time with my children and loved ones and to be present to how incredible my life is.
So simple really. Declaring who you are and then being that, and living with integrity – being your word.
I’ve been thinking a lot about legacy and what I want my life to be about. What I want to leave the world with, the contribution I am to people and the planet. Perhaps that’s for my next post.
Sometimes it takes a 4 year old to make you realise what you are, because they seem to know already.
