The sky’s the limit


This week I took an evening flight with my friend Nicola Godden in Beryl, her light aircraft named after Beryl Markham, the first woman to fly solo, non-stop across the Atlantic from east to west. Beryl was a British-born Kenyan aviator, adventurer, racehorse trainer and author who wrote about her adventures in her memoir, West with the Night.  Like Beryl, Nicola is an inspiration to others, a talented sculptor, pilot, mother of four and an active member of our village community.

IMG_6124Several years ago I held a workshop over six weeks round my kitchen table for a group of young Mums. The workshop was about ‘How to get from where you are to where you want to be’  based on a book by Jack Canfield called The Success Principles.  One evening we looked at the power of writing down positive affirmations – goals we wanted to achieve.  Nicola wrote that she wanted to resurrect her sculpture business and gain a private pilot’s licence – up to that point she had a real fear of flying.

Fast forward 10 years, Nicola has a thriving sculpture business including being commissioned to create a piece sculpture for the London Olympics and has well and truly overcome her fear of flying!  NicolaGodden-Copy-1-1
