Something that stands out for me is the first primary school I ever worked at. The teachers said “Oh, we don't know how this program is going to go.”
My ego said, “Don’t do it,” and my heart said “No, these children need the message. They need to hear this. They need to be inspired.”
Towards the end of a session, I had these two impressionable young women come and ask me about something that could potentially change the way that they view [emotional intimacy in friendships] going forward. That was really awesome. It was such a rewarding moment.
I attribute my success mostly to me having the grit to actually do it and embrace uncertainty. But it has a lot to do with my husband – the support that he's provided me in creating a legacy.
I’m creating a wonderful role model for kids and for people around me. A lot of children in schools are being raised by parents that have their own emotional intimacy issues. It's not their fault. It's not the parents' fault. It's no one's fault.
It’s about learning what drives your behaviour, and then how you go back, heal, let things go and be the person you want to be.
