I am an afrohaired queen, self-taught seamstress, fashion lover, self-believer, personal growth addict and Excel Wizard.
My mum is the most important person in my life. In 2017 my mum was diagnosed with stage 4 Ovarian Cancer. And until the last few months you wouldn’t of known my mum was sick.
Now more than ever I want to build something that can not only be part of my legacy, but my mum’s as well.
I will be using all the skills I have developed from working numerous 9-5s. To enable me to follow my many different passions. For the rest of my life.
Comparing where I am to where I want to be. Or where I perceive others to be. Has been the biggest enemy of my progress.
I was in my early twenties when I first discovered Desiderata by Max Ehrmann. I was in my first managerial position and I was struggling to understand why the person I was training, wasn’t as able as I was at my previous role.
“If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself”
I would read that line every morning and every night, as an attempt to keep myself grounded. It was easy to use to humble myself when I envisioned myself as the “greater person” but it wasn’t until many years later. When I began to perceive myself as the “lesser person”, that I truly understood the message within the text.
If there is something to learn or discover, sign me up. Creativity flows through me, I love all of the arts. And have a strong desire to understand the how, what, why and when
