People over-estimate what they can achieve in one year, but underestimate what they can achieve in ten years.
When I look at Jaya, and her journey over the past twenty years, I fully understand what this means. The subtle magic of always moving forward, one joyful step at a time. And consistently building – relationships, skills, reputation, a great wardrobe and a meaningful life. It is nothing less than awe-inspiring, to watch someone blossom into their fullest potential.
I know many people, myself included, who have been caught up in starting and stopping, waiting and anxiety, impatience and disappointment, caught up in rushing to build a career.
For 2019 I have decided to throw the word ‘career’ out the window, and replace it with ‘life’. To appreciate where I am, what I have and who I am, right this minute, and to build from here. No going backwards. No swaying sideways. Simply moving forward and flowing with the dance of life.
