Hello World! It’s Me!!
Welcome to my new blog, According to Vi! I’ve had so many people over the years ask for my views on this, that, and the other, that I thought it would be fun and hopefully inspiring to share with you my thoughts on life and leadership in the 21st century.
Who Am I?
I’m Vi Thomas. I am one of four children born to the best parents of all. I’m a registered nurse, author, mentor, leader, singer, speaker, lecturer but most importantly a daughter, sister, Auntie and friend. I’ve a wide range of interests such as…. antiques, rummaging around car boot sales, netball, and card making. I enjoy informative reality TV e.g. The Apprentice, The Real Housewives (yes! You read correctly), vintage fun TV e.g. Only Fools and Horses. I love a real laugh and have an interesting sense of humour often triggered by Jack Dee or the old Carry on Movie stars. I love all things fine such as the ballet, the theatre, art galleries blah blah blah…. so this blog will hopefully reflect a wide array of topics and the life lessons I’ve drawn from them.
According to Vi is launched today on my second birthday!! What’s good for our Queen is jolly good for me too, so I’ve decided to celebrate two birthday, my original birthday which was last week, and today! Over 30 years ago today 11th June, I became a born again Christian which was an absolute life changing experience and a game changer. Trust me, nothing stayed the same since. It sure helped shape my views on a number of things, though it’s fair to say I’m a work in progress as you will soon read. It’s important to note that the views shared here in According to Vi are my own unless otherwise stated. I’m always open to healthy debate and challenge so do feel free to comment and pose your questions. The comment box will stay open for a limited time. In the spirit of keeping things wholesome and beneficial to the reader, all comments will need to be moderated but I will do my best to get back to you.
What’s it All About?
According to Vi will focus on Leadership and Life. Why life? Because it’s sure getting freaky out there and I hope to present a slightly different perspective on some of the goings on!
Why leadership? I’ve been a leader in the nursing profession and in my faith for over 30 years so trust me… there’s a few stories and words of wisdom to share from all that.
Why me?…. well why not? Every man, woman and child is having their say on the internet, and I’m sure there’s room for one more and why not my voice and opinion out there too!
