Have you noticed our world’s obsession with speed and efficiency? Especially out of the starting blocks… car manufacturers boast about how quickly a vehicle can get from 0 to 100 km/hr, cosmetic brands promise instant results (cramming an eye-watering amount of herbs and benefits into each drop), and influencers share their best-kept secrets to quick-fix your life in the shortest space of time.
If you’ve reached this time of year feeling weary, exhausted and overwhelmed by the pace of life, I’m here to remind you that you are not a car nor a fancy face cream! Your worth is not locked up in how much you do (or don’t do) or how fast (or slow) you can run through life.
Truly, how we start is not as important as how we finish.
Whether you shot out of those starting blocks in January and had a fantastic year, or whether you stumbled through 2023 and are hobbling to the finish line: we can all still finish the year strong… simply by taking some time out to reflect (learning the hard-won insights this year has offered us), and resting well – because unlike cars, us humans need to break for power!
As I’ve taken time to reflect – I’m so grateful for all of you. It’s been a wild year, full of wonderful moments – including a fantastic Mumspiration event in Cape Town; for our Mums from MUMBOX, launching Power Talks and meeting many of them. It’s true – on our own we can get by, but together – we’re unstoppable.
