1) THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO YOU IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS?

I seriously took up tennis. It was the only thing going well for a long time and one of the few places I felt in control, powerful and like I was achieving something. My old boss and I were fighting, I was trying to reinvent myself and go it alone consulting; I was commuting between two cities, overworked and tired, mending a broken spirit and heart. At tennis, I didn’t need to plan, think ahead, be uber productive, or impress. I could just “be”.

2) THE WORST THING THAT HAPPENED TO YOU IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS

I thought being in my 40s would bring relief…it seemed to have brought existential anxiety instead! I’ve been consumed with the fear that I’ll never find love. I’m also in career transition and feel like I don’t know what to do when I grow up.

3) YOUR BIGGEST WISH FOR THE NEAR FUTURE?

That I find the stamina and will to keep saying yes to everything.

4) YOUR BIGGEST WORRY FOR THE NEAR FUTURE?

That I won't reach ever my potential; that I'll start to get irrelevant before I hit my stride...

5) A CONTEMPORARY WOMAN YOU CURRENTLY ADMIRE?

Greta Thunberg; she feels she needs no one but truth on her side. I admire that a lot. To not want.

6) A ONE-SENTENCE MESSAGE TO OTHER WOMEN?

No matter how you feel, just keep walking.
