Not just a New Year but a New Decade!

Updated: Aug 9, 2023

Not only have we entered a new year but also a new decade.

I always reflect at this time of year so I’ve really spent some time thinking about how far I’ve come in the last 10 years. Truth is, I’ve fought battles most people would run from. I’ve rebuilt my life from scratch and achieved things I never thought possible.

I didn’t see it at the time but I can look back now and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought me to where I am today – living a big, happy, healthy life. BUT, it took a brain tumour that nearly killed me and a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis to get it. In the last decade:

✅ I’ve learned to walk and talk again

✅ I’ve adjusted to being partially sighted and deaf

✅ I’ve discovered I could ‘model’, (and is now something I’m incredibly passionate about)

✅ I fell in love with nutrition and fitness. I realised I belong in the gym too despite my ‘quirks’, (in fact I’m probably more competent than most)

✅ I gained a nutrition qualification

✅ I discovered natural medicine and now help others

✅ I give motivational talks occasionally – next one end of January

So here’s to the next decade…………A decade where we all realise that we can rise up from ANYTHING:

“Trust that some of the best days of your life haven’t even happened yet. There are going to be nights that will stay burned beneath your eyelids, memories that dance underneath your skin. Life is going to exceed your expectations, it is going to astonish you with its timing. Remember you have not felt it all. The world still has so much left for you”.
