LIFE SO FAR...
I grew up in Cardiff, Wales and moved to Australia with my mum, dad and sister when I was 15 years old. It was a HUGE change that I really struggled but it definitely made me into the resilient person I am today (would I recommend moving your 15 year old half way around the world? No!)
When I was 17 years old I was feeling lost and on a downward spiral. I never thought I would reach the point of calling a helpline to get some support for how I was feeling but I am so glad I did as the lady on the other end of the phone gave me some valuable advice that got me to where I am today.
During my journey of healing I read books upon books about self-help and picked up some fantastic practices, but it was time-consuming and when you’re desperate for some help you don’t always have time to read a 300 page book to only pick up a couple of bits of advice. I then started surfing the web to find some simple but powerful tips that I could use daily to help me get out of my rut and although I found some great content it took a lot of different google searches to get there.
So here I am today a much wiser and mentally healthier version of myself and I want to give back my learning’s from the past 10 years in a simple easy to read way. I’m always looking for ways to share some positivity with the people around me, no matter if I spend 5 minutes or a lifetime around them.
I also want to show my children that practising gratitude, showing compassion and helping others is just as important in life as using manners, getting an education and working.
Thanks for reading!
