I try to live my life simply and authenticly.
I decided to start this site because I like to help others. If one person can connect to my story, my thoughts and what I have to say, and learn from it, then it will all be worthwhile.
Around the time I turned 30, something in me switched on and I changed. Until then I felt like I was just going through the motions, and not really thinking that much about life, I just took each day as it came. I was not thinking for myself, I was very much under the influence of others, and concerned with what other people would think. I was in a bad relationship, I was binge drinking on the weekends. I had alienated family and friends, I had miscarried twins. I generally was not happy with where I was at in my life. I felt like I had been living in a fog and all of a sudden the fog lifted and I could see clearly for the first time in years. The clarity made me realise things needed to change.
Since the year 2000 I have been on a quest to learn about who I am and what I am here for. What I have learned is that every day I wake up a different person because of what I learned yesterday. The worst days of my life have given me the biggest gifts of learning about myself. Life is now much less complicated and drama filled than it once was. And although “shit happens”, the way I react to it now is very different.
I don’t judge others because I don’t know what is going on in their life and in their head to make them do what they do. And their business is not my business! Some days I don’t know why I do what I do so I now use that to learn more and grow. So, it would be silly of me to try to understand the actions of others. I do know that the more I become myself and live a simple and authentic existence, the better I feel about me.
