In My Opinion - Three powerful little words

Updated: Jul 29

I was recently LIVE on the Radio.

The powerful presenter explained the concept before we were LIVE on air. She explained that the show was a way to create a conversation by polarising the audience and encouraging a debate.

She explained that I should expect to be rumbled by the listeners and goaded into standing up for my opinion from the presenters. It was clear they wanted someone who felt strongly about a subject, and for this subject, they chose me.

The Mummy Needs Wine culture; they knew exactly what I would say.

I sat with the opportunity for a moment.

There were so many angles I could have chosen; I reread the three words I had scribbled in my notebook - in my mind, I was dreaming up creative ways to share my vision and make others stop and listen to me.

Suddenly something softened, and I took a breath.

I thought about my clients, their transformations and the simple encouragement that it took, I considered the group, those who are active and watching from the shadows. I smiled when I remembered all of the likes and comments.

I felt supported, heard, helpful and needed; I felt calm and at ease. I knew that the ready ones would be inspired by whatever I decided to say.

I took a deep breath, and with my hand on my heart, I said

"In my opinion, the Mummy needs wine culture is over.

Women are waking up; we choose a new way, a brighter, clearer future, a life without alcohol. We inspire our families and encourage our friends to join this health-seeking behaviour. We are so much more than sober.

In my opinion, sober curiosity is the movement sweeping the globe.

Women are putting down the drinks and investing in personal development to create a life they love that will inspire their families and friends; just thinking about the ripple effect gives me goosebumps."
