    Hi Paula. I was wondering if you could create a post about gifted late-bloomers, like those whose giftedness “suddenly” emanates during adulthood/adolescence? Of course that is, if they exist. If they don’t, I can merely conclude that I’m an alien in this human world, hahaha 🙂

      Sounds like an interesting topic, Risou. Definitely there are late-bloomers. Of course, you’ve always been gifted but there could be lots of reasons you didn’t know it until later.Thanks for the idea.

    Thank you for creating this space, Paula. It feels quite unique.
    2015 has been a great year for me, and I’m feeling blessed and content as I look back over it.
    Next year I’d love to read about ways to transform anger, partnerships between two rainforest minds (though I’m guessing tomes could be written on the topic), and more on ‘self-help’ for rainforest minded people who are unable to see a suitable therapist and so mostly go it alone.
    Sending best wishes for you!

    I’m doing. I would love a post about dealing with changes, uncertainty, unmet expectations, or life not following the plan you want it to… A keep calm and carry on type post if that makes sense.
