I spent eighteen hours with one of my close friends over the weekend. We talked a lot, watched a video about how we shape environment through design and spent Monday morning at a Melbourne cafe writing.
In the afternoon I met up with another close friend. We watched Clueless, drank tea and talked about the Alannah Hill Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection.
One is a dentist and the other works at a start-up. One will affectionately call me a nerd for when I tell her about this post, the other will push me to achieve peak performance by spending the entire morning writing with me, disconnected from the web.
Both women are strong, accomplished and light hearted with distinct personalities. Both have unknowingly shaped me in some way.
What I”ve just noticed is the awesome feeling of owning up to these different sides and not pretending to be one colour.
We do not fit into a single archetype. Instead, we thrive in contrasting environments.
We are agile, complex and multifaceted.
