HI, I'M FIONA
My storY, ITS BEEN quite the journey ...
From the consistent overachiever, to the unfulfilled corporate employee taking part in the commercial rat race.
The overwhelmed Millennial juggling social expectation with the life-shattering cancer diagnosis of my partner.
The burnout professional, to dedicated business owner.
My journey has been exhausting
(I feel exhausted even writing it down!)
But as I moved from overwhelmed to empowered, I learnt two critical points. Firstly, you always have a choice, no matter the situation, no matter the challenges you always have a choice about how you live your life.
Secondly, if you want to create something new, you need to challenge some rules…
(... and here’s a hint, the bigger the rule you challenge, the bigger the change.)
And so I did. I challenged the idea of 'ladder climbing', of just 'living for the weekend'. I challenged other people's opinions and expectations but most importantly I challenged my own beliefs.
I questioned what was keeping me chained to a job and a lifestyle that provided me with no purpose or fulfilment.
I worked hard on understanding my purpose, on recognising what fulfils me, what career would allow me to really thrive.
I re-wrote the rule book and created the change I needed to not only build a career in which I find true purpose but which also enables me to live a reality with more freedom, more opportunity, but importantly more fulfilment.
“Working hard for something we don't care about is called stress: Working hard for something we love is called passion.”
― Simon Sinek
There is so much which happens in our lives which we can’t prevent. But, there is so much more which we can. Following rules that don’t serve us, or conforming to a status quo which causes stress or anxiety can create innumerable problems in our life, problems which can spiral and not only stop us from achieving our potential but create greater issues in our lives.
When we become more self-aware, more emotionally intelligent, more resilient, when we listen to what we want and need as individuals, we can take back control of our own lives and start to 'Prevent the Preventable'.
Whilst knowing this, through her work Fiona also looks to help
'Prevent the Unpreventable' and supports the charities:
The Natalie Kate Moss Trust and Trekstock.
I believe in PREVENTING the PREVENTABLE.
