I am that person, who, when we meet for the first time, will ask you 100 questions. Light fluffy ones, standard ones and probably completely inappropriate ones. I am inquisitive. I am. I want to know you. I want to poke you and prod you. I have been called insensitive, I have been named a nosey cow, a pushy bitch, yet I have also been known for my listening ability, my counselling empathy, my interesting style of conversation.
What do I want in this moment? I want your soul.
Yes, your soul.
You may not know it, but you have a story. Each and every one of you has a story that is so rare, so unique, so engaging, so powerful as to be utterly compelling. When I meet someone new, I don’t want to know what you do, where you go, I want to know your story. I want to see life through your eyes. I want to share that quintessential piece of you that make you, you.
My 6 year old asked me – mum, what makes chocolate so good?
Is it the sugar?
Is it the cacao?
Is it the way it is made?
It is because it is chocolate. And there is no other thing on the face of the planet just like it.
The same as there is no-one just like you. No-one who has the same thoughts, experiences, feelings and drives. A unique, amazing recipe- never to be replicated.
Your life, you passions, your purpose, your secrets, your dreams, desires, whims, wildness, mystery and magic. Unique, incredible you.
Think of yourself as a story. A story worth telling. If the lights were low, and the fire was blazing, the candles a glow, the circle had drawn close, and intimate stories of truth were about to be shared – what would you say? How would you tell the wonder of you?
