I know. Its been a long time since I have posted regularly, but seriously this life stuff truly does get in the way of my writing time *giggle*. Although I feel totally overwhelmed about all the EPIC stuff that has been going on in my life of late, I am really quite excited too. Everyone says “If someone had told me years ago that I…” but really If someone had told me years ago that I would be dreaming, daring, doing what I am embarking on at this moment I would have tossed them a few valium to settle their obviously traumatised nerves!
I never used to dream about much. Not because I didnt have a wish for an amazing life – but because little insignificant me thought that I was either selfish or unworthy of such a life. My mother was and is an amazing mother, but as the youngest of three and the second daughter I kinda had my own thunder stolen by my very over the top sister. She was the first daughter, granddaughter and niece and thus got all the attention and praise. She could do no wrong despite her rebel ways. Dont get me wrong. I was loved, very very loved. But my mum was everyones mum and she was so down to earth I didnt feel the pull to dream big. Boy has times changed. My dream now is to work towards changing theway that health care is structured and delivered in Australia! Wow…big huh?
I never would have dared either. I was never a daring child, nor a daring adult. Safe. Yes that is exactly how I would have described myself up until a few years ago. Safe. Comfort zone. Predictability. Now however I would call my younger self a great big fraidy cat with no big girl pants! Now though I feel like I lead a daring life. Sure enough that daring life has landed me with a few injuries (ahem…fractured spine…ahem – who? what? dont know what you’re talking about lol), but it has taken me to amazing places. I moved to the Sunshine Coast – away from my friends and family. I completed my first triathlon and 10km run. I changed my health and thus my life. I climb mountains. I try a gazillion new things.
Then we come to doing. This is probably what I am most excited about. I am doing. I am doing some pretty awesome (although completely terrifying) stuff. My career as a nurse is taking me to places I really didnt have the gusto to dream about. I am implementing some real and significant change in areas of healthcare, and although I get some challengers and some naysayers (really all that is, is a thumbs up that I am headed in the right direction), it is becoming very exciting and I cannot wait to share it all with you. When it goes to media then I can share that with you.
Now tell me about what you are DREAMING DARING DOING? I love hearing about you all and your adventures – check in and bring me up to date on your adventures too 🙂
Everybody Be AWESOME!!!
