Stop. Look. Listen.

It’s amazing how adverts can stick in your memory. Random bits of information that you don’t actually need (don’t mention the red car and the blue car, otherwise I will sing the full advert to you!)

This is who I am.

I’ve been thinking about the stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves. The ‘I am a…’ stories or ‘I have a…’ Or ‘because of this happening I can/can’t/will/won’t’ Those stories.
