Maliha, it would seem sometimes the world presents us with what we are looking for or need to get us through. Your article and the word insouciance — that word in itself is helping me today — is the state I am trying to emulate as I try to react less to difficult situations. Today I am the cool mum to a teenage daughter. Today I am the indifferent teacher, again to teenagers-it’s not the job I want but it’s where I am now.

So I’m dancing on the inside to 90’s hip hop and infusing my surface boiling point with insouciance — what ever works!
