Meet Sonia

Hey there!

 

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to introduce myself! I hope that by exploring this site, you will get a more in depth perspective about who I am by what I do.

I have drifted along for the past 3 decades, trying this and that job. Exploring a variety of business models. All a part of my life journey to ‘find myself’. I figured that since I had no idea what I wanted to be, that I needed to find out ‘who’ I wanted to be.

 

One day, I saw this quote:
life-quotes-05

And I got to thinking. All these years have gone by where I had been ‘creating myself’ but usually to ‘fit in’ with how others needed or wanted me to be.

I studied and trained, I became very good at being whatever or whoever I needed to be to fit into a particular job description. All the while dreaming of being as successful as the people who owned the companies that hired me! Why was that kind of success so out of reach for me?

The answers have been coming to me by way of clues. People I have met, become associated with and even have become good friends. They have all had very important messages for me. They have all believed in me and encouraged me to find my own way, my own identity and my own brand. Until recently I just didn’t believe in myself. But, success leaves clues.

I read the books written by successful people. I attend events hosted by successful people. I talk regularly with successful people. All the while, gathering the clues to success. But acquiring the knowledge is not enough. It is the actions that I take with the knowledge I now have that will determine whether or not I will reach my goals, realise my dreams and become the me that I am destined to be.

Which brings me here. Sharing the wisdom that has been collecting dust bunnies in my brain so that I can continue onward away from the shackles of being dependent on others to provide me with a means to pay my bills. I have been existing but not living. I have been busy but for someones goals and dreams. Not mine.

I hope that with every post I write, every little nugget I share that you may gain some value.

Here are just a few things that I am:

I am a wife, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a niece, an aunt, a grandmother, a great aunt and a trusted friend.

I am a writer, a singer and a dreamer.

I am a Driving instructor, a teacher, a coach, an inspiration and a drop everything to help if I can kind of person.

I am a woman with not much fashion sense and an infectious laugh.

I hope to get to know you too! Please leave a comment so that I can visit your site. Connect with me through the social buttons and if you do find anything of value, kindly share :)

    1. Hi ALicia!

      It is great to be back for sure! I am also looking forward to getting regular articles back inside PAC as it has been way too long a break :)

    1. Thank you Erika!

      I am working on not trying so hard and to let everything flow – only problem is now, my brain is spilling over with new posts all of the time! I have to get in the habit of writing them down as I get to my computer and forget what I was so pumped about hours earlier!

      Thank you so much for your compliments. Greatly appreciated :)

  4. Hey Sonia!

    Actually this is my first of more to come visits to your website and I must confess that you’ve got a very fast loading and simple layout website here. Nice job ma’am!

    You know I read your very friendly comment on my post over at PAC Website and thought to know who the down to heart and lovely lady is and here I am on your blog already getting addicted kind of. :)

    I love your story and you should know I face much of the same thing. I mean the working and making other people’s dream work and merely staring mine in the face and pushing working on it to later.

    Like you, I read books, attended seminars, and seat in intellectual exchange with guys I adore but nothing changed until I took the initiative to start taking action on working on my dreams.

    Here I am today, living my life to the fullest! isn’t that what you are doing too, Sonia? :)

    I will now go and check out some of your works…
