OB: I would want to be a man for a day to understand the male perspective as I feel that we are more the same than we are different.
LWTL: Name a woman who inspires you and tell us why?
OB: Shiva Rea is a yoga teacher, female warrior, powerful leader and teacher. She embodies compassion and strength, which inspires me to seek those qualities within myself.
LWTL: What was the last book you read?
OB: The Thought That Changed My Life Forever. This is a wonderful book containing chapters of stories about key moments that changed people’s lives and perspectives.
LWTL: If you could tell your 16 year-old self something what would it be?
OB: Listen to your intuition; you’re on the right track.
LWTL: Virtue & Vice?
OB: Through my strength and compassion I allow and inspire others to find strength within themselves, and to come back to what’s real and true and in their hearts. My vice would be putting others before myself.
LWTL: If you could offer other women looking for their purpose or “dream job” a piece of advice what would it be?
OB: Follow what brings you the most joy. Find something you love doing and the money will come. The only limitations we have are the ones we create ourselves.
LWTL: What has been your biggest challenge? How did you overcome it?
OB: Letting go of resistance and fear, feeling ok about creating my own path and not conforming to other people’s beliefs.
I am…inspired by people willing to be open to change and honest with themselves. People who have the courage to look deep within and accept all their traumas as fuel for growth and change.
Friends are…best when they’re raw and real while at the same time being supportive, open, loving, encouraging and playful.
Love is…feeling alive, connected to everything including your own emotional, physical, mental, spiritual and energetic bodies.
If more women helped one another…I feel that as human beings we are more alike than we are different. If people in general (male or female) helped one another rather than being competitive there would be a lot less suffering and feelings of separation.
One thing I would change about myself is….my lack of confidence.
One thing I love about myself is…my openness.
