I’m proud to have a range of qualifications/ credentials (see below) but these, while possibly impressive and definitely relevant don’t tell you who I really am…..
I spent the first 45 years of my life chasing someone else’s dream. I was a bright, introverted and deeply sensitive child. And I didn’t fit in at all…. anywhere! The well intentioned, lovingly motivated direction of my parents and school teachers combined with my desperate need for external validation led me to climb the Corporate ladder, dog eat dog, big house, new car and materialism. To the outside world I was was a success!!…. On the inside I was lost, lonely and terrified….
At age 43, on the Summer Solstice of June 2008 I moved to Ireland. It was a mad, almost out of the blue decision fuelled by alcohol on Christmas Eve 2007. And here, on this beautiful Isle of Emerald Green I quite literally fell apart. Landed in the shit of my own truth. Faced the music….
Fast forward (you’ll have to buy the book for the juicy bit in the middle) to now. I am rediscovering who I am, rebuilding my life, loving my work and enjoying beautiful authentic relationships. It’s been tough, painful and more rewarding than I could have ever imagined.
Am I sorted? Am I perfect? Am I done and dusted, enlightened, fully conscious? Nope!… not even close! But I’m living, growing and thriving in my truth.
