In the words of Tony Robbins…so I figured that If i didn’t try, I would never know…
I have always been incredibly jealous of people who wake up one day in their lives and they suddenly know, deep inside of them…OK!, this is what I really want to do.
You see it in movies ALL THE TIME, or maybe you have a few friends that have shared life with you since you were little, that would answer to this very typical question “what are you going to be when you grow up””, with the same self-assurance of a grown up…I want to be a: doctor, astronaut, singer, you name it…
And I am here, at the not so young age of almost 38, having absolutely no idea.
But don’t get me wrong…it’s not like I didn’t do anything with my life until now: I managed to build myself a career, out of absolutely nothing…basically by mistake…without even knowing what I was doing, what I was putting myself into, where it would take me, and I think I never really once stopped to think about the most basic question: is this really what I want to do for the rest of my life?
And I can hear you, loud and clear from here…come on! You? At almost 40? Are you thinking about this now? Must be a middle age crisis. Maybe it is, and it should come to no surprise that I have read at least 5 books in the last 6 months related to this subject ( which of course I will share with you as we go along ).
Anyhow, this long introduction is to basically justify why I am sitting at my 10 year old laptop at 11pm at night, during Coronavirus lockdown, jobless…writing.
I have been meddling with the idea of writing for as long as I can remember. I used to write poetry when I was younger…even songs…and I always found writing very therapeutic. I can go on and on writing and pouring my heart and feelings on paper and only realize that I should take a breath, but then it was always too late as I was already pages and pages in.
I don’t have any expectations about this blog.
I don’t know if anyone will read it, or if anyone will care.
But I watched a documentary on Netlifx tonight about Tony Robbins and the thing I remember the most is when he said: “whatever happens to you, it’s your fault “…so I figured that if I didn’t try it, I would never know.
That is why I decided to start this blog – because it makes me feel good, and I always loved to write. So even if it doesn’t work, I will be happy to have done something to make myself happy.
But I have a lot to say, hence a lot to write and a lot to share, and if you happen to like it, I hope you will come back again to read some more.
I will share a little bit about the below, and see where this adventure takes me:
- my journey into discovering myself a little better, through career coaching ( something that I am starting next week and I am very excited about )
- my experience in building a networking platform for women in hospitality here in my city, Dubai
- book recommendations
- and I will give life to my daughter’s stories, born through her imagination
