I recently watched speaker Bernadette Black
(http://www.bravefoundation.org.au/html/events/bernadette_black.html) give a very inspiring presentation. Each time I see Bernie speak, I feel the same emotion and am moved in the same way I was the first time I saw her.
Her story is extremely real and personal and she talks about her past in falling pregnant at 16 and what she chose to do with her life after that point. In short, she’s a great speaker and if you get the opportunity to book her or watch her, I strongly recommend it.
One line from her presentation really resonated with me after seeing her this last time. Upon finding out she was pregnant she went and told one of her school teachers. His response to her was: “Your journey will be different, but the destination can still be the same”.
I love this line. I love it in so many different ways. How often are we confronted with a huge roadblock or impediment in life where we think that we simply cannot achieve what we had previously dreamed?
Your journey will be different, but the destination can still be the same.
