Client Feature Miss Kelly
I am currently doing a 40 over 40 Campaign. I am meeting so many wonderful woman and I will be featuring them here.
This is the most powerful series that I have worked on with clients to date and I can't wait to share it with you!
We will get to know the individual and why they choose to be part of this amazing series.
I would like to introduce you to Kelly!
Start by telling me who you are? Where are you from? How old are you now?
What do you do? Give me a short history of you and your life, from the beginning until now.
My name is Kelly, I'm 40 years old and have lived here all my life. I was born in Vancouver and then was adopted out at 12 days old. I grew up an only child but recently I have found my birth family which gives me 9 siblings. I became an LPN in 2005 but soon decided that I wanted to go further. I became a RPN and continue to work in our ever-changing health care system.
Since grade 4 I always wanted to be a nurse and I am passionate about my job.
My plan in the future is to continue to help/care for people through my work and in daily life. I look forward to living more remote and learning how to live off the land.
How did you mark turning 40? And how did that feel?
My partner brought me breakfast in bed. It kind of felt like any other day but I was older.
Have your values changed over time? What do you value now?
I have always been an old soul and most say I have always been older than my years. I can't say my values changed over time, but I am looking for a drama free life with like-minded people. You don't get to take anything with you when you leave this life so your relationships should bring love and joy to your life.
Time is speeding up lately. It was never slow in my life, but the last few years have gone by way too fast.
What have been the significant points of change in your life so far? How did these significant points in your life change you?
Death of family members and my good friend. Losing groups of friends due to choices of others. Meeting my birth family. Getting into a car accident. Going through divorce. All events make you sit down and analyze your life choices. What could you have done different, could you have prevented an outcome or should have said more/less. Realizing that my body was not as strong as my mind and that I needed to have more patience with myself. It might not happen right away but every life event you learn from, and it makes you stronger.
What is the one piece of advice would you give your 20 something self?
Follow your heart, don't take on other people’s crap and travel.
