Where does my ‘MAGIC’ come from? | I believe my magic comes from the many second chances life has given me; I survived stage 3 cervical cancer, stage 4 endometriosis, myoma, I was deaf for nine months, and MRI scan revealed a swollen pituitary gland in my brain, I nearly drowned in the Atlantic ocean in Swakopmund, I have had 14 surgical operations, I had a hysterectomy, I was once a victim of sexual abuse in my childhood and domestic abuse in my marriage, I got divorced and I live with an autoimmune disease. If my life has been worth surviving all these challenges, surely my magic lies within them all.
My LIFE MISSION | To be LOVE, PEACE & LIGHT to the world
Difference between good and great people | Good people perform perform very well at what is expected of them. Great people work from a place of love and passion and give their all to whatever they commit to.
Biggest learning experience. | Accepting that I am different and should be kind to my body, mind and spirit, after all I have been through the mill and back.
Principles and values I live by |
- Authenticity in all my dealings
- Forgiveness of myself and those who wrong me
- Vulnerability by allowing myself to be emotionally bare for the healing of others by sharing my journey to my Becoming
How I stay energised and perform at my peak | I exercise in the morning, meditate and repeat my mantra, take my meds and then I am ready to kick ass at what I do.
Best advice I ever received | From my friend Prisca when I wanted to divorce my then husband, she told me to heal first from the emotional trauma before I even think of leaving him. That was vital in my growth because now I make sure I heal from any pain; emotional, physical, or spiritual before I move on. The catharsis has been life transforming.
Am I a happy person | Absolutely and every morning I purpose to be happy.
