Boxing has opened up a whole new world for me. Kat says “you can’t be grateful and angry at the same time”. And what Kat says has to be true because there is one rule at 12 Rounds Boxing. Your coach is always right (even if they are wrong). If you break the rule you have to do 20 burpees and I still have a love/hate relationship with those. So let’s go back to being grateful. I’m grateful that I’m open to learning new skills and that this journey has brought me to boxing. Boxing is hard work but even more important it’s fun and it’s a way to become the person I want to be. Someone who feels strong, confident and empowered.
I had the pleasure to interview Jane Hutchison in April 2017. She is the Co-Founder and Creative Director at Hello Love Studio and Founder of The Hello Beautiful Foundation – an impressive personality. We talked about collaboration, innovation, creativity and of course about the Hello Love Space – a journey of unforeseen restrictions, improvisation, and unexpected opportunities.
I am wondering is the environment that we are in responsible for our creativity? I am a maker, a creator, a doer. I am an impatient one. I always was. If I want to change something, I go for it. As far as I can think back, as I child I made everything I could dream of myself. DIY was the way to go. I used my room to experiment.
Do you remember that time when you were really focused and forgot everything around you? Time passed so fast that you didn’t even realise it. I remember these times very well. It was when I played. It was just you and your imagination. Everything was possible! That was an amazing time.
I never thought that I could be happy and uncomfortable at the same time. How do these two feelings even correspond with each another?
