What is our essence?

Not what do we want to be?

Nor where are the gaps that need filling?

Instead, what is at the core of who we are? The intrinsic us.

No more. No less.

Our gifts and abilities.

Our character and values that leak out when we’re not looking.

All the experiences that have shaped us to this point.

And – guess what – honouring our essence helps us to pay attention to what we already have.

Uncovering our youness.’

How amazing is that!
