I Didn't Recognize The Person I Was Writing About.

Wednesday 30th September


This really is going to only be a few lines but I wanted to share. Having spent an hour working on my chapter for 20 Beautiful Women I came away from the laptop feeling a bit unsettled and couldn’t quite put my finger on it.

Thinking that it was perhaps the simple fact of how busy I am at the moment I thought it might be no harm to try and relax for an hour and clear my head.

Then as I did the dishes- something I actually quite enjoy- looking out at my back garden, the blue sky, trees in the breeze and feeling content it hit me. Even though everything I am writing is true the person I’m writing about then is almost unrecognizable. It filled me with such a rush of emotions sadness for the woman I was for so long. The woman who battled with herself every day. Gratitude and love for the way I get to feel now and just so amazed by how far I’ve come and how much life has changed.
I am grateful for my past but my future looks very different.

It’s funny because yesterday I was watching Lisa Nichols
 (someone who I popped on my vision board today!) get a little teary as she spoke about the life she used to live and said the same about how her life now is unrecognizable.

We all have such power inside us to be the person we want to be, to live the life we want to live and to love it.

I am so pleased and so grateful that I get to live out the rest of my life having discovered that taking action though it may feel uncomfortable at times is much less painful than staying stuck. It doesn't have to be fast every step away from the negative is a step in the right direction.
It is exciting to be at the beginning of a whole new chapter in the story of my life and to get to share all that is possible with the world and help and support people who are ready to start moving forward.
