REST RESET CREATE - LEONIE HENZELL

REFLECTION

As we have ticked over halfway through our 2019 journey, it had me reminiscing on the year that has just passed. Whilst 2018 was an interesting and memorable year; it is lovely to look back and absorb all of the key learnings. I took a significant break that year. It was a wonderful chance to re-invent how I want to live my life. An opportunity that was to rest, reset and create. Now in my 2019 journey, these visions are in the processes of execution. I am now looking back on these lessons; reflecting upon the progress I have made personally and professionally.
