When I became an author in 2015 it was the most exciting thing ever, to have that first physical copy of the book in your hands is the best feeling and then to see your books on the shelf of Waterstones and doing book signings was mind blowing to say the least.


Becoming a writer was never something that was on my wish list or on any kind of list, it wasn’t a dream to be an author I didn’t even like reading books growing up, my educational background was very poor I would walk in one gate at school and straight out the other, not something I’m proud of! I would drift from one job to another nothing that inspired or excited me until I found something that I was passionate about which was beauty.


I went to college as a mature student and sat my City and Guilds in Manicure and Pedicure and to my complete shock passed with a distinction I even called my tutor to see if they had made a mistake, for the first time in my life besides having my children I had achieved something, something to be proud of, I then went on to do many diplomas in other areas of beauty, I became a mobile beauty therapist setting up my own business which enabled me to work around the children and I must say I was good at it, I had built up a fabulous client base and became very successful at what I did until the day came when it all came crashing down on me.


In 2010 I was diagnosed with MS, to say I was devastated was an understatement my life completely changed just like that. My role as a wife, mother, and business owner became challenging I was forced to give up my business that I had worked so hard to build, I couldn’t drive anymore, I was the one that always did everything for everyone and now I had to rely on others which was so difficult for me I couldn’t even take my own children to school, my independence was taken away. I was constantly tired and then depression set in, I found myself in a very dark place which had an impact on my mental health I had no motivation, no drive, life was one big negative, all my positivity had gone.


So, what does all of this have to do with my vision and mission? Bear with me I’m coming to that part. After some years of feeling sorry for myself I knew if I was to get back up, I had to do something about it, trust me it wasn’t easy.


A friend of mine Felicia invited me along to her meditation group, as she would tell you herself I found every excuse not to go plus I didn’t understand what it was, I had only ever heard negative things about meditation, I was in a bad enough place as it was so I didn’t need anything else added to it but this one particular day I gave in. I wasn’t in the right frame of mind at all, I had just had a massive argument with my husband and probably wasn’t the best time to go and try this meditation, so I thought!


Feeling uncomfortable and awkward I didn’t know what to do or expect I just wanted to get up and go but I just couldn’t move, what happened next was life changing for me.


After a complete melt down of tears and were talking Niagara Falls here it was like a light shone within me, this heavy weight I was carrying and black cloud that was hanging over me disappeared just like that. For the first time in years I felt free and acceptance of my illness, I started to focus and get my life back on track and even began to drive again in an adapted car.


After a few months of daily meditation, I connected with my Angels, yes, you heard right, Angels, my heavenly guides, it was through this connection with the angelic realm that my writing started and when I wrote my first book ‘A Collection of Inspirational Guided Prayers’, no one was more surprised than me, if you go back to the beginning of this blog you will see what I mean. Did I see angels? No, did I hear angels? No, not directly, but I did, and still do have this knowing of their presence.


I have since written several books and now a Multi Award Winning Author, if only my teachers could see me now! I finally found my true purpose in life.


Through divine guidance I intuitively know what to write and when to write, it comes naturally to me and from the one place, the only place, my Heart Centre. I have been given the tools to bring words of healing, inspiration, positivity, and comfort to share with you. I feel incredibly blessed and grateful.

Are you one of those people that makes new year's resolutions and never stick to them? I used to do it for years and then decided not to put that pressure on myself anymore because I knew it wouldn't last long. We all overindulge at Christmas time and new year and put those unwanted extra pounds on but 2020 was kind of an extraordinary year and speaking for myself I know I have put on more than a few extra pounds.



When we was hit with this pandemic in March 2020 and went into a national lockdown it affected us all really hard everything closed down but were allowed one hour of exercise a day outside whether that be for a walk or a run but it was hard for those who were used to going to the gym, now, I have never been a gym person myself but I did sympathise with those who are, my husband and son included, and then came along Joe Wicks who got the nation and especially the children in to exercising every morning which was a fabulous thing to do.


By the summer things improved, shops, take out restaurants, and gyms slowly started to reopen, a bit of normality returned, then a new variant of the virus hit us and more restrictions were made. Christmas arrived and was cancelled, we found ourselves in another lockdown or tier four as they are calling it and so everything closed again. As we celebrated, or not celebrated Christmas there would have been a lot more eating and drinking going on, but how much of that overindulging was due to maybe having to spend time alone, no contact with the outside world, not seeing family and friends?


There is no doubt about it that 2020 and especially Christmas would have had a massive impact on our mental health and wellbeing, but if we can try and get into the right mindset and change our thinking process then we can make a difference to our health mentally and physically.

It’s all about choices and whether we decide to make those choices. I have chosen for 2021 to take more care of my wellbeing and get into the right frame of mind by starting with dry January ,healthier eating, and what exercise I can do.


A few months ago, I bought a programme called Full Body Wellness (see the link below) designed and created by two lovely ladies Lisa Lowndes and Rebecca Adams, the program is to help improve body image, nutrition, and mindset. For a one off payment you have access for life with new content being added all the time, and did I mention there is a 52% discount until January 11th. I did this program first time around which really helped me but now that my weight has increased quite a lot due to overindulging, lack of mindset, and exercise it’s time for me to get back to a healthier lifestyle.


Why don’t you join me and make a difference to your wellbeing, because you are worth it and deserve a happier healthier life?


Love and blessings
