A lifetime of trial and error, challenges, setbacks, and successes are contained in the pages that follow. Virtually every aspect of my life is touched on in some way, including the internal struggles that proved the greatest challenges in many ways. In fact, I have been completely open and honest about my inner demons, as I feel they have the most to teach.
And, just as life didn’t always stick to a straight and narrow path, so too, these pages may twist and turn from time to time. But, as you read through them, those twists and turns will begin to make more and more sense, as that is how life taught her lessons to me. In the end, I realised this intricate system, although seemingly complex, was the best way to instil the knowledge I needed to learn, so it is how I have furthered the knowledge on to you.
The race I have run is definitely a marathon and not a sprint. That said, I often had to pace myself when it came to learning what life had to teach. The same can be said for reading the insights I have chosen to share with you. Pace yourself. Sit back, relax, and unpack this information one page at a time, one experience at a time. Hopefully, by the time you are done, you will be able to incorporate my life’s experiences into your own, thereby gaining two lifetimes of knowledge in one.
