Introduction

Life is not easy, if you are anything like me you have, at one point in your life, been diagnosed with depression and/or anxiety. You have worked hard and honestly your whole life but have come away feeling unappreciated and undervalued. While having no desire to end your life you also feel ‘what’s the point?’

To make it worse, you look at ‘sad’ figures on tv and film bemoaning their lives whilst they live in an amazing apartment, in a job you would take in a second, whilst living a social life you can only dream about! Even the unpopular ones have a best friend! If only they knew the real struggle (I admit, it would make a terrible film). I’ve been there, done that, bought the t-shirt (except at the time it didn’t fit my emotional eating affected body).

We live in a world where you need to stop and breathe and appreciate the world around you, it has taken me a very long time to realise this. I had started to understand on my own by leaving my job and moving from the UK to Singapore for my husbands work and reconnecting with Reiki …and then I got cancer, which has only seemed to give me a big kick up the bum I need to sort my life out and really look at what makes me happy, really happy.

Feeling happy and content is within everyone’s reach and I hope it doesn’t take getting cancer for you to have your epiphany. Therefore, I have decided to use this site to note my musings in the event that it can be of any help to anyone at anytime.
