Admitting you are not the person you once were – that’s the bravest thing you can do…


It takes huge courage to explore the changes you’ve experienced through your journey… the things we live through change us. Not always for the better!

As I travelled through my day I experienced a huge difference in the way my own energy is attracting opportunity for change… again I was shown the value of helping others… I sat writing at one of my favourite places and experienced the feeling of gratitude that comes from being available to help others… what was truly beautiful was my drive in to town..

i stopped today to change a flat tyre for a lady pulled over by the side of the road.. a busy road on the way into the city..

she said that her hubby was on the way, but I said it’s ok I have the tools to change your tyre in a flash… why? Because it was a busy road and I was where I should be.. helping another person… but what was even more perfect in this moment was what happened in the middle of changing her wheel..

as I went to put the spare on her hubby turned up. A smile on his face, reassuring her it was ok, then out of the blue 3 guys turned up, all Indian from the local community hall… one guy with his tools, I’m a mechanic he said… let me help, sorry I am late!!

I let him finish the job! Why? Because his need to help was as important as mine… but for me it was deeply special… the husband was especially grateful as he watched 4 guys fuss around the car so he could drive it home… his wife had already left in his car… late for work..

the joy? Seeing 4 grown men come together to help someone just for the privilege of helping… paying it forward… it’s not lost in me that all of us were from different cultures.. but all with the same intention… loving humanity…

nothing is determined, we can always be better, more and in a place of giving… As I changed her tyre I explained my own journey, depression, trauma and that I was on a journey of healing.. that paying it forward meant something to me too…

you can be what ever you believe, what ever you choose and what ever matters to you… every day offers me an opportunity to grow, to feel gratitude for the journey I’ve begun… stripping myself back to a place where I can feel every moment as I re establish my energy and essence…

I began my new book today… “my story, my moment, my journey” I wrote over 2000 words and it felt good to tell the absolute truth… I wonder how it will feel for for those who are apart of that story?

i was reminded that I am more than the perception of others… 🙏🏽💕
