It was when my therapist I was seeing in my mid 20’s asked me when I knew my dad was an alcoholic. And my response was: “What do you mean? My dad’s not an alcoholic.” To which he looked dumbfounded at me, recounting all the stories I had shared. And said to me, “Your dad is an alcoholic”. Holy shit!
It wasn’t until I started researching my first Snorting Out Loud presentation that I found out Marianne Williamson actually authored this. While I absolutely love and respect Nelson Mandela, I think it rather interesting that this is attributed to a man, as opposed to a female writer and philosopher.
I was speaking to a room full of successful, women leaders in the technology industry. I asked the audience if they ever asked themselves the question “who am I” or “why am I here?” Nearly every hand in the room went up.
