  • constant curiosity
  • lots of jobs and relationships — good and bad
  • Seeing value in the tiny small stuff that I contributed to the world
  • building, nurturing and enjoying a skill — of my choice
  • owning thanks and praise and associating it with me!
  • listening to criticism and applying the brakes before slipping down the self-hate/catastrophising spiral
  • laughter
  • more constant curiosity
  • more learning
  • singing, dancing, painting, writing, reading and listening, exploring — and dissasociating the value from income and ‘success’.
