I had a wonderful upbringing, caring, loving parents and brother, no financial worries, but I just never liked myself very much, I never felt good enough, never felt attractive enough. Don't get me wrong I was always happy on the outside, loved talking with people, but something was missing. Then from the age of about 30 everything became a struggle and the biggest challenge was just around the corner, when at the end of 2007 my husband had a bleed in the brain. I was now a carer for my husband (who was an alcoholic), we had 3 children, I was still running my graphic design business, had a big mortgage and no way of supporting any of it. Gradually over a month, I had to close my business, walk away from my home and move us all into rented accommodation, not knowing how I was going to cope. I remember sitting on the floor in our new home in tears, surrounded by endless boxes and barely enough money to eat that evening. When suddenly I looked around, and with a huge realisation, I had kept a roof over our heads, we were all safe, and I never wanted to be in such a desperate position again. I had an absolute 'knowing' that all was well in that moment. I couldn't at that time tell you where that feeling came from, but I can say with absolute certainty today, that what felt like hitting rock bottom changed my life forever. Amazing people started coming into my life, just when I needed them, wonderful, inspirational books seemed to find me.......and so my journey of true 'self discovery' was born.
Today I am stronger than I have ever been. I am growing my Alternative Health and Wellbeing business and have helped so many clients to grow their dreams and realise their own potential. Life is about experiences, and we can make those experiences as easy or as hard as we want with our thoughts and beliefs. Change really does happen when you change your thoughts!
