Life is not linear. When you follow your own true not you create new opportunities, meet new people, have different experiences and create a different life.
Being a midwife is a cooperative exercise. When some of us are tempted to call the journey off, others are there to remind them that we all in the process of giving birth and that birth is hard, focused work.

Whilst the saying is usually
comings and goings,
Goings allow for new comings –
A point of encouragement I cannot help but feel
as I look upon a new journey.
We don’t do this haphazardly,
We arrive at our new futures by
living our talents and values as large as we possibly can:
The soul is never at home in
the social world that we inhabit.
It is too large for your contained, managed lives.^
