I am a 42-year-old woman and I have been living in a beautiful corner of the world, at the edge of the Garden Route, in a little town called Mossel Bay, South Africa for 10 years. I have been married for 9 years and I have a 17-year-old son. I also have two adult step-daughters and two young (step) granddaughters.
But who is Leanne Walmsley, at her core?
Most know me as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend or colleague.
What they may not know about me, (except those nearest and dearest), is that I am a dreamer and I dream big dreams. I am an extrovert, not shy to shine, unafraid to lead. I have entrepreneurial vision but pragmatism and circumstance have made for very practical decisions over the last two decades, leaving my dreams shelved, to gather only dust. I have it settled deep within my spirit, the desire to impact lives, in a beneficial way, and to do so, far and wide.
I have, for too long, been as a ship anchored, safely in Port. This is not what this ship was made for – I yearn to set sail, to see the world. The time is near, the winds of change favourable. I have a few projects I’m busy with presently and I’m pregnant with promise and ambition. I am excited and a little anxious at the same time, cautious, but determined… committed to move forward into the fullness of my raison d’être.
Watch this space…
