When I was little, I used to attend lots of events and competitions where girls handed out business cards that said things like:
“Becky-Sue McSmartypants ‘be the change you wish to see in the world'”
and “Janie Sparkleface ‘shoot for the moon because, if you miss, you’ll always be one of the stars.’“
Although they are somewhat trite – and, certainly, the latter is misguided in the astronomical sense – I still tend to nod my head and appreciate the sentiment that underpins them.
You are amazing.
You are smart.
You are caring.
You can make the world a better place.
It’s up to you to figure out how to do it.
This is a place to celebrate life and share stories, lessons, inspiration from people who create lives filled with meaning. I’ll share things like bloggy biographies, film/culture/book reviews, maybe an interview or two, definitely some conversations overheard on a bus, and I’ll think about posting some of my sub-standard doodlings. I’m also going to take you on the journey I have in creating my own life as a writer. And, most importantly, I hope to hear from you…
So, hello you & welcome – please come back soon!
