Adapted from the movie, the West End version of Legally Blond stars Sheridan Smith (known for playing Janet in the BBC sitcom “Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps”) as Elle Woods and Duncan James (of boy band Blue) as Warner. It was not a serious show but I can say it was one of the most fun shows I’ve seen and I enjoyed it more than I even imagined I would. So did the other people in the audience. Even the men and boys who were there because of their wives, girlfriends and mothers really seemed to enjoy it. Everyone around me was raving. As in the movie Elle follows her ex-boyfriend Warner to law school after he breaks up with her. Rather than just blending in with everyone else at Harvard, Elle stays true to her West Coast roots. To me this is one of the most appealing things about Elle’s character. Even though she goes to Harvard to follow Warner she stays confident in who she is. Ultimately she realises that law is her calling and that she has it in her to excel as an attorney. I think it was the combination of the uplifting story and the fact that the actors were so connected with their roles and engaging with the audience that made Legally Blonde so enjoyable. It is clear that Sheridan, Duncan and all the actors in this show are following their life path and doing the work that is meant for them.
Normally my clients come to me because they really aren’t sure what work best suits them. But sometimes I see a client because they have a very clear idea of what they want to do and want confirmation they are on the right path. Yesterday I had a session with a 23 year old university student from America. Her mother recently had a session and thought it would be helpful for her daughter to also speak with me as she will be graduating this year. Based on the science of numbers I figured out her life path as that of the humanitarian. Before our session I meditated as saw her as an advocate for those who have no voice. As we talked about what I thought would be ideal career choices for her she was amazed. It resonated well with her dreams and goals of what she would like to accomplish when she leaves university. We talked about steps she can take right now as she’s getting ready to leave university to put her on the path of making her dreams a reality. Even for those who already know what they want to do, it can be very reassuring to have a non biased person support their dreams and give them practical advice on how to transition into their perfect work.
If you feel stuck and aren't sure what your dream job is think about the things you love doing. Do you have hobbies that you could spend hours on? What is important to you now? Thinking about these things can give you clues to the path of work that will inspired you and leave you fulfilled.
