Prologue 3 Why listen to me?
So, really, Why listen to me? What makes me an Authentic author?
I have been surfing downstream for about 10 years having made the commitment to change things when I was at my lowest ebb, and was probably the most difficult time to do so.....
I have now reached my pool of calm. Believe me, I'm not special, so if I can do it, YOU CAN DO IT TOO if you really want to!
My own experiences
The major life challenges I have overcome;
· Severe financial difficulties,
· Early death of a parent,
· Chronic and terminal disease,
· Severe depression and sequelae,
· Multiple miscarriages,
· And probably the hardest thing which I still struggle with, learning to put myself first.
The triumphs :including –
· Changing my life’s direction,
· Quitting my career,
· Selling my business,
· Travelling the world,
· Meeting my soul-mate half way across the Atlantic on a yacht,
· Emigrating to Australia, and
· Ticking my bucket list whilst becoming healthy again.
And most importantly I have reached my pool of calm………and on reaching it , it was as if all the dominos lined up fell into place……my new life is exciting creative, fulfilling and HAPPY………it’s the life I want to lead!
SO THE STAGE IS SET………WELCOME TO THE JOURNEY DOWNSTREAM!!!!
