Alice. She’s actually my lifelong obsession 🙂
She had begun to THINK that VERY FEW THINGS indeed were REALLY IMPOSSIBLE. She needed no fairy godmother or prince – just her own wits and ingenuity.
She’s a curious adventurer: following a tardy rabbit galloping through the yard she went down the rabbit hole.
She learns and grows each day: not going back to yesterday as she was a different person then.
She uses her intellect to overcome problems: bumping her head, bruising her soul, facing so many unknowns; yet she went ahead with her journey in Wonderland and took it a moment at a time.
She frequently speaks her mind: not holding back while being bullied by the Queen.
And, her PENCHANT FOR MATHEMATICS: “…four times five is twelve, and four times six is thirteen, and four times seven is–oh dear!”
On the qui vive, being objective. Continue to treat everyone with respect and civility. Use factual filters in the decision-making process.
“Be a hard master to yourself- and be lenient to everybody else”. Build your resilience!
