Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - STYLE NOTEBOOK -

Dreams are only dreams un­til you ac­tu­ally take steps to make them hap­pen. I was a dreamer for a long time, but I never re­ally had true self­be­lief. My dream was to write a book that was sup­port­ive, in­for­ma­tive, but most im­por­tantly one that fo­cused on a mum’s well-be­ing, and not just the baby’s.

My break­through mo­ment was the day of my book launch. It was a day I thought would never hap­pen to some­one like me. It was the hard­est, yet most re­ward­ing pro­ject in my life. I’m in­cred­i­bly proud that it is the first well­ness book ever to be writ­ten for new mums world­wide.

As I flicked back through the book, I thought to my­self, ‘You did it’. I was as proud as punch. My jour­ney changed af­ter that night, and I re­ally felt at home on my new path as a well­ness coach. I had worked hard, and turned

my life around.

At that mo­ment, I knew there was no go­ing back. As I spoke that evening, I looked down at all my friends, fam­ily and col­leagues, and for the first time felt re­ally con­fi­dent in my abil­i­ties and the di­rec­tion that my life was tak­ing.

Peo­ple’s per­cep­tions of me changed, too. I had fi­nally found my pur­pose, and now I love what I do.
