Uncovering Your True Self

self development Dec 01, 2020

Understanding who you are and why you are the way you are is integral to creating an authentic life, based on who you are at your soul level. In the past I have fought my instincts and second guessed decisions that I would make, wondering why I never felt confident to back myself.

Fast forward to Christmas 2019 and I recall sneaking away from the crowd I was hosting to have a moment of solicitude before the desserts were served. I had been rushed off my feet all morning and with several house guests, was feeling the pull and strain of hosting and smiling and all those other things that demanded my attention. As I crept into the quiet lounge room and found myself a private, comfy seat I was startled to see my sister in law Ashlee, who had curled herself up on the other side of the lounge with a book. She smiled at me and I instantly felt invited and reassured in my own home. She asked quietly, 'taking some time out?' to which I nodded. 

That was a defining moment in my life. Our conversation that followed enlightened me beyond belief and I am so thrilled to share a recount of that conversation here with you now. Once Ashlee introduced me to the 16 personalities test and I uncovered my true self, I have found peace in many things I do.

About my guest...

Ashlee Barnard (Aunty Ash) is my sister in law, and has lived in the UK for the last 5 years with my brother in law, Steven. Ashlee currently works in local government (IT) which she has done in both Australia and London. Most years, Ashlee spends time enjoying London life, and travelling around Europe. 2020 has seen her watch a lot of Netflix and dreaming about what’s coming next for the years ahead. Ashlee was introduced to the 16 personalities nearly 10 years ago and she is an unashamedly introverted and organised individual who knows her social boundaries and is not afraid to talk about them!
