2018 What A Year!

At the end of last year, one evening in the week between Christmas & New Years, I took a huge piece of card from Jude’s desk and I sat on the floor in the lounge. I had four different coloured sharpies and I started to write a plan for the year ahead. I wrote 2018 in the middle of the page and then I started to write down anything and everything until the whole page was covered. I wrote things like, visit a new country, run a marathon, start a podcast, film more vlogs, work with a charity etc. I also wrote down a financial goal for the year. I wrote down a list of names of people that inspire me, a list of people that I’d like to meet, a list of books that I wanted to read and I wrote down all of the things that make me happy and all of the people in my life that are important to me.

The Latest…

This summer has been crazy fun & mega busy! Hence I haven’t updated my blog in a while… So , here’s what I’ve been up to lately… TEDx Talk At the start of this year, I wrote down a list of goals for 2018. I also wrote down my ten year goals. (yes I am that person! I blood love goal setting) One of the things on my list was to speak at a TEDx event. Well sometimes, opportunities come up a lot sooner than we expect them to! I was waiting to board a flight at Heathrow airport one morning in February, and I got an email asking if I would speak at TEDxMauerpark in Berlin. I was absolutely buzzing! I boarded the flight and then had twelve hours to think about what my talk would be about. I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to share both my mission and my own story.
