It’s great to have you here right now. It´s a crazy world out there full of bumps, challenges and unexpected twists and turns lately. This is a calm space where you will find things to nourish, excite and inspire you in while we are in the eye of a global storm.
I am not even meant to be here. A couple of years ago, I was diagnosed with brain can**r. Doctors told me that I could expect to survive only 6 weeks.
And yet, here I am, back home, writing books and feeling good as a completely different person. I have the same face and same name as before. Everything else about me has changed – both inside and out.
It’s been a monumental ride to get through it. I have leaned heavily on my family, friends, local community and loved ones. I have experienced amazing support and community from those around me. My life has changed completely since my near-death trauma. I have had a full upgrade in my operating software inside my head and I see the world differently how, with more depth and wisdom.
Many people are asking me what I did to recover from such a thing and it’s a long answer. I talk about what I did in one of the blogs and video on this site. I want to share what I did as a recovery protocol and help others who may be going through the same, or have family members who want to heal.
I have had to learn how to slow down, relax and find out how to ask for help. I learnt the importance of being impeccable with my thoughts, words and actions and to eat wisely. I learnt that everything we consume through our senses has a powerful effect on our biology, psychology, mental health, feelings and deeply affects the outcome of the reality we experience.
This site is about living life to the full, how to stay bright and curious and how to keep well, excited and vibrant.
My latest book came out in the Summer of 2020 right in the middle of quarantine and lock down: The Art of Creativity – 7 powerful habits to unleash your full potential. It was written after my cancer recovery. I found this was a highly creative phase. I got inspired to write and couldn’t stop writing and getting the words out onto the pages. It turns out that there has never been a better time to have a book out about creativity when everyone was locked down and could not go out.
I was inspired by a wonderful classic on creativity, The Artists Way. I wanted to write an update on the subject of creativity and put my own spin on how you get into that great healing space of being in the flow. I spoke to Paul McCartney, Russell Brand and David Lynch and others in my quest for finding out what makes creative people tick and I have included the best ideas from those conversations in the book.
I am starting a new life now, after a time when everyone thought I was not going to make it. But I knew I would survive. As my teenage son said, ´We won the year, Mum’. Yes, we did.
Have fun in whatever you are doing and hope you enjoy the site. Check out my podcast series, featuring people including David Lynch, KT Tunstall, Jasmine Hemsley, Ricki Lake, Bob Roth and others coming through.
