In celebration of World Book Day I thought I’d share with you an excerpt from the book I’ve been talking about for a very long time. I promise, it will happen! Writing down my story, every single thought and action has brought clarity and peace to what was once a very troubled mind. I have, at long last, been able to make sense of everything I have done – not just the good stuff, but the horrid stuff too, and come to terms with all the actions and consequences that makes up life’s rich tapestry. 🙂
By the time I came to Highcliffe in 2014 I had lost my way. I no longer knew who I was or who I had ever been. I contacted childhood friends to see how they viewed me, and how they remembered me, even as young as four and five years of age. Their response was amazing, embarrassing and unrecognizable on every level. Apparently, I had been confident, something I certainly did not feel. I even dug out some old photos and was surprised and strangely comforted that in every photo I had the biggest smile. So, who was I really? A happy person trying to get out or an unhappy person desperately trying to be happy? Whoever that little girl was I knew that I wanted to be more like her from now on in.
When the book is published I’ll celebrate with all of you my lovely followers!
