Hello, my name is Freya and I am a life addict. What’s a life addict, I hear you ask. Well, I love life and I love trying new things and new ways of living it. We only get one life and I’m here to try and help you to shape it to be the best life you can have.
Most of my day job at the minute is being a teacher to secondary school students at a lovely school in rural Derbyshire. I was having a conversation with some of my students about gender and found myself telling them that at some point, the girls would probably have to choose between a family or a career.
I’ve always been a big believer in the idea you can do whatever you want to do, be whoever you want to be, and yet here I was telling my impressionable young charges that they were going to have to make a choice like that? I was horrified with myself as soon as the words came out of my mouth and really worried that I’d get some of the girls’ parents (rightfully) complaining about the messages I was giving them.
As the parent of three daughters, this is not something I ever want my girls to think and believe. So I’ve gone back to the drawing board, back to what I’ve always loved most in the world, helping women achieve everything they want in life.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking I have all of my shit together. It is scattered wide and far. Life often seems like a desperate attempt to gather it all together. But we can do that together. Learn together.
So, whether you’re an international jetsetter, a local shop owner, a mum with a mission for good living or a combination of all of those things, stick with me. Together, we can make sure that you are truly loving the life you live. No compromises. No second best.
Because, to paraphrase, we are infinitely valuable and deserve it!
