This weekend I was shortlisted to the finalists for the ‘Woman to Watch’ award at a national event.
I didn’t win my category, as another super-talented lady called Chrissie won. But I honestly felt so proud. Firstly that I was nominated and secondly that this has all happened in such a short space of setting up my coaching business.
So, I decided I’m still celebrating!
It was held at a gorgeous old Hotel in Birmingham City Centre and my very pregnant sister attended the ceremony with me. The food was divine and there were so many inspiring, interesting and adventurous women there who are lighting up their corner of the universe. I felt really honoured to be there and be a part of it.
Here are a selection of a few pics from the night.
As you can see, we had lots of fun! As a mum of a busy three year old, who runs a business – I don’t dress up as much as I’d like. So, after the awards, these are my new promises to myself:
1) To dress up more and wear sequins as much as I can.
2) To wear more red lipstick.
3) To get my glitz and glamour on more often, take chances and risks and live life to the fullest.
As I write these, I am feeling teary and thinking of a good old friend, Nicola Satchell – who passed away yesterday from a long battle with cancer. She wore red lipstick and laughed with all her heart. So, laughing more is also on my list. I’m celebrating her life today too.
Are you celebrating enough? I’m learning to celebrate all the small wins along life’s journey – make sure you are too!
Thanks to everyone for voting for me. As always I appreciate the love. Have a beautiful week… I’m off to Italy…
