This is where it all began, for me.
Change is motivated by many things.
Maybe, you can be happily strolling through life and the need for something different — absolutely blindsides you and in that moment, your world has changed.
Because, as soon as your view changes — your world changes around you.
Or, perhaps you have suffered a horrendous life event — where the sheer fear and anger that you felt — gave you the impetus to ensure that it will never happen that way again.
When you connect emotions to change — it amplifies it’s power and resolve massively — whether that be the fear of not going back — or the love of what is to come.
My moment was this: I was tired — so tired — of living with crippling Anxiety & the remnants of childhood OCD.
I would worry, be afraid, sad, upset, angry, feel inferior and give myself away on a daily basis — and I didn’t know what to do next.
So, I decided to share my story with a Networking group that I attend — as I felt it was my last option.
On that day, I stood up - shaking and delivered my story — everything.
For once, I was completely honest, open and I felt very emotionally open.
Long story short, like the Boggle in the Cupboard — for the Harry Potter fans amongst you — once released, it felt a little bit better.
So I did it again…and again…and then took it on the road and talked all over the UK, telling my story.
By the time I got back to Bristol — the difference was amazing — the OCD elements had almost completely gone — and the Anxiety had really ‘cooled down’.
