”And I know what I have to do now. I gotta keep breathing. Because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring?”– Castaway movie.
My favourite quote is from the movie Castaway. The reason I love it so much is that is has been a source of inspiration and motivation for when I launched my digital strategy agency – never ever give up. Who knows what tomorrow can bring?!

“You become wiser by doubting your beliefs, and less wise by believing your doubts.” – Lama Jairbee
It’s a quote which came to Lama Jairbee after hundreds of days of sunrise meditation. This is a reminder to me that the vast majority of limits in life are self-imposed, and we should never believe the doubts inside of us. It is also a reminder to question my own beliefs, and those of others; to challenge the status quo, and discover innovation.
“If there is no enemy within, the enemy outside can do us no harm.”– African Proverb
This is a quote taken from an African proverb. With a variety of applications, this quote resonates with me as part of my cancer journey.
Diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia as a 20 year old, the journey to rebuild my body and mind was a slow, painful one.
In time I realised that life isn’t a measure of how others view you, but how you view yourself.
I’ll always have scars from my surgeries in hospital, pains that stay with me, and uncertainty that lingers in the back of my mind. But that quote – if there is no enemy within, the enemy outside can do us no harm – reminds me to accept my life, body and mind for what they are.
It’s no one’s place to judge me. Just as no one should be judged at all.
We’re all on our own journey, all with our own cross to bear. And if you can find a way to be comfortable with who you are, and I mean *truly* comfortable, then you’ll be the most at peace version of you possible.
