the thing that gives me courage each and every day

My Passion


My passion, the thing that gets me out of bed everyday, is to simply empower everyone, to 'show up and own up' as themselves.  

Not to be scared of what others think.  

Not to allow judgement or social norms, to restrict their passion and creativity.  

Not to loose parts of their soul along the way and only realise they have done so, when it is too late to get it back.  

Don't just challenge the status quo - smash it into pieces, with the raw beauty, truth and inspiration, of what it truly means to be a human being living life fully, not caged by optical illusions and meaningless bullsh•t.   

Get out there, take your space, use your voice, be yourself and shake your world, until only the truth remains. 

Perfection is bullsh•t


Do you know what the most interesting thing about you is? 

 Your honesty.  

Because that enables others to see the real you.  

And that is truly unique.  

You are incomparable, because you are you.   

Your story cannot be copied and your footprint in this world cannot be duplicated.  

Everyone has their own value to offer and much of it comes from our imperfections, our failings, our mistakes and our rejections.  

And do you know what the most boring thing in the world is?  

Perfection.  Bland, meaningless and unachievable perfection.  

So, just be you, warts and all.
