When I was in my teens, I sometimes dreamed of being a huge success
BUT never truly believed it could be possible for someone like me
Success as a woman in adulthood for working class women of my generation meant I would be just
like my mum,
A wife, mother, supporter, never ever expecting to put myself first
In fact, “no one likes a showoff” was often said
It wasn’t depressing, it was just how it was.
So I worked, kept house, solved problems for other members of my family.
Championed and supported everyone .......it was OK, that was my role in
THEN in my 50’s something started to change
I wanted more!
I told myself I was too old, had left it too late
To change and become the woman I knew was inside of me was scary
Becoming visible was terrifying.
BUT if I didn’t take action, I would NEVER know my full potential.
It wasn’t easy BUT I did it, I found financial freedom and success in midlife.
AND that is possible for every single woman
We can all achieve the great things that we feel inside us
We just have to be brave enough to take action
AND understand with total belief
There is no limit to what we as women can accomplish
