A while back, I mentioned that I will be giving a talk in the New Year. . . so it's the New Year and I have been diligently working on a presentation. Now there is a date.
I will be a Speaker in Talk Boutique's next Salon Series on February 28th.
I'm really happy to be speaking at this event - created by two old friends - as I have been in attendance for a year and it has always been a great night and I always meet interesting people.
I've strung together some images and a few personal stories that go together.
I hope to see you there on the 28th!
Tickets are limited, free and available here
The last two years have been bitter and sweet, confusing, inspiring, depressing, joyful, happy and sad mixed into a bit of a dream and if there is one image that represents 2017 for me, it is this image of Gord from August of 2016 – the irony that an image from 2016 represents 2017 to me is not lost on me. ..
I've thought a great deal about this image. It represents LOVE. It represents facing your challenges and your fears, having a dream, taking risks, family, friendship, sacrifice, passion and above all strength. It represents the past and the future.
With love in my heart and a tear in my eye for the last two years, I draw strength from it and look ahead to what the future holds and remember all that was good in the past.
Change, Risk, Transformation, Dreams, Passion, Creativity, Relationships, Activity, Healthy and Inspired – these are the themes that will drive me forward into the New Year and beyond.
Change - in job (i’m on my own again after a beautiful 7 years with Gravity), priorities, expectations, horizons and lifestyle.
Risk – taking more chances, overcoming fears, pushing my limits, skills, knowledge, and creativity. Challenge myself!
Transformation – of ideas, health, work and energy.
Dreams – Have them! Understand them and chase them. Do it for you! Its ok. Make, create & accomplish.
Passion – Follow, create & discover
Creativity – Do more. Fear less. Take Risks. Fail.
Relationships – Strengthen, reinforce, create & broaden. ENJOY them all.
Activity – Do and Be. Explore and discover. Challenge. Give Time. Give Money.
Healthy – Food. Lifestyle. Exercise. Outlook. Energy.
Inspired – Find and discover. Do, make & create. Explore and expand. Refine and think. Chase. Fail and Be.
