You’d be surprised how many people think they can tell you what’s best for you.

Women have been nurturers from birth. Our mothers, our sisters, teachers and coaches made us what we are today. They were women in their own right. For myself, I let go of my natural respond to nurturer roles to the point of devoting a third of my time to myself, to learning, and to figuring out what was right for me. I was surprised at some of the result from that choice, disappointing though it was. Not a very satisfactory way to live your life.

What would my life look like if I approached my life with an attitude of trust, rather than a victim stiff upper lip? I might ask myself what information would I need to lay a successful path and do what I love to do with the people who support my vision. I could look at their skills and ask if they might be willing to go see my radar and help me to develop a working relationship with those who share my passion.
