1. Something that I’m…

Taking a major leap of faith when I left my medical career behind. It was an unreasonable move, and I had no guarantees that it would work out. I’m proud that I picked myself up afterwards and I made it work out!
2. Something I wish…
…I could try for the first time…
Bungee jumping. First I’d have to work hard at not feeling queasy just thinking about it 🙂
3. A lesson…
…I’m still learning, is…
Life works when we flow with it. It’s really hard when we try to push against it.
4. The ‘someone’ I…
…have been most inspired by…
Oprah. She worked herself up from poverty and abuse to be one of the world’s leading entertainment professionals. She continues to use her enormous influence to inspire people and to change the world.

…am most happy is…
Anywhere with silence and loads of books!
