My passion for words began when I was but a tiny little thing. My dad was (and still is) an avid reader and he bestowed upon me the gift of getting lost in a good book. This love of the written word made me want to add my own books to the world's library. Writing and reading are not mere hobbies. To me theyre passionate compulsions. Things I NEED to do everyday, like brushing my teeth or peeing. A day without reading or writing for me is a day I don’t feel like myself, or a day that doesn’t seem complete.
My passion for personal development emerged as a result of hitting rock bottom following a breakdown. I struggled with depression, anxiety, and panic for nearly a year before I realised I was letting them win. I was letting them take my life from me. That’s when I started to rebuild myself from the ground up. I devoured personal development books, listened to podcasts, and watched the few television programmes there was at the time. It was clear this was not something I would stop doing. I would always be developing. Evolving. Enjoying knowing myself deeper than i ever thought possible.
And that’s when my 2 passions merged.
I started a personal development blog, trained as a life coach, attended seminars hosted by notable speakers, created email courses, and designed many freebies to share with others who were as passionate about personal development as I was. All with 1 major difference - I was no longer the student, I was now teaching what I knew to others.
And that's how I discovered my true calling. My purpose. I had aligned fully with my true self and the opportunities unfolded all around me as a result.
I have been very lucky to have built a life around my passions, and if I can do it so can YOU.
