We’ve all had to manage our family, our time and our inner well-being. We don’t usually find everyone in the same boat at the same time so that makes it easier. Times of challenge offer wonderful opportunities to reflect on our life and how it is going. Tony remembers being told at age 14 that he’d better do an apprenticeship as he was not academic enough. He became a printer when he really wanted to be a comic. Those who know him would say he missed his vocation!
In wondering how his life might have been different it helped him to see that despite a different role he was the same person, using his humour to make a difference and bringing light to those around him. What about you? Did you follow a different path and what within you simply adapted to it, finding ways to express?
