Going Back To My Roots

On Reflection – My Journal

I am sat here in our kitchen, it’s quiet apart from the air conditioning, the birds tweeting outside to each other the sound of tapping on the keys of my laptop. Semi-silence, no music, no T.V.

I can think fairly clearly. Therefore, I am taking time to reflect.

This may turn out to be deep.

Who am I?

No I haven’t got amnesia.

I am a wife, a mother, a friend, a colleague, a neighbour.

What else I ask myself?

How do I see myself?

What do I want out of life?

You would have thought by now I would know. But do we ever know? Life is always moving and changing, each day is different.

I decided to go back and look at my Core Brand Values.

What three things do I want to be known for.

This is harder than to pinpoint that I thought. What other people see in you, isn’t sometimes what you see in yourself.

I am

  1. Passionate
  2. Supportive
  3. Authentic

I then decided to research these descriptive words, to see if there was a common denominator.

  • Passionate

Fervent, Zealous, Obsessive, Fanatical, Adoring, Loving, Enthusiastic.

  • Supportive.

Loyal, Kind, Sympathetic, Compassionate  , Understanding, Encouraging,  Caring, Empathetic.

  • Authentic 

True, Reliable, Dependable, Faithful, Trustworthy, Genuine, Realistic.

Oh my goodness, I feel quite humble.

To say that my eventual chosen profession was Nursing, Midwifery and English Law.

I would say a perfect fit with my Core Brand Values

I wear my heart on my sleeve, I dislike injustice, I cry when I am happy, I cry when I am sad.

Proud of my family.

Proud or myself.

Where will this lead?

More to come. I am sure.

On Reflection







Oh my goodness! I feel quite humble.

    Hi Geraldine
    That’s lovely to read your blog, it’s so insightful and inspiring. You were always a person that did the right thing for the right reason in the right way and such a respected role model. You quite obviously love your life in America and have a great network of friends. I wish you all the best and hope that I can model some of your values in my life.
    With love
