A note to explain what my journal is going to offer you; a space to reflect and grow.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my website and for reading my journal. I am excited to have this opportunity to share with you.
What you can expect from my journal?
I believe in the power of knowledge and shared experiences, whatever they might be. My aim for this journal is to share my life experiences, as well as podcasts I have listened to and benefitted from, books I have read that have challenged me and helped me be the person I want to be, and people who inspire me and why. It will be like a conversation between us. A chat.
“For many years of my life I lacked self-confidence and would often feel I had nothing to offer. However, I have come to realise that the narrative I was telling myself was wrong.”
A new narrative
Our lives are one long story and we are the narrator and the narrative we tell ourselves can be positive or negative. Only we can change the narrative so that our life story is the one we want to write not what life’s circumstances write for us. What’s your story? Is it the one you want to write? Are you in control of it or do you feel it’s being written for you? Unfortunately, often circumstances and how we react end up changing our story.
Easy said than done I can hear you say! You’d be right. It takes time and a willingness to overcome and change. But the reward is worth it, believe me, I know. Oh and another thing, we will always be changing because each situation we encounter, each conversation we have, each and every day we are learning something about ourselves and others. This means we are continuing to change, be flexible and learn, so that our story continues to be ours.
Hey, and another great thing is that because it’s our own story, we get to rewrite it and change the narrative as much as we like… Happy Days! I have rewritten my story loads over the years and will continue to because I am a work in progress. I love that because that means I am continuing to learn and I am not done yet!
I can’t wait to share with you and my desire is that my meandering through stories, thoughts, and tips will help you overcome and be the author of your life story. I hope you will share with me, too.
