Were you ever given a piece of advice that you still draw on to this day? Do you have a saying or mantra that truly resonates with you?
When I was a little girl, my father would say to me from time to time, "Paddle Your Own Canoe".
He was teaching me, in his subtle and gentle way, the importance of being an independent thinker and decision maker long before I understood what those two skills really meant.
Throughout my life, Paddle Your Own Canoe, has guided me in countless ways -
- given me the confidence to say No in some situations and Yes in others
- helped me to believe in my own abilities
- and made me think creatively about what I could do in life
Just four simple words, Paddle Your Own Canoe. Pretty good advice if you ask me!
Enjoy your creative journey, Jules
