A Lighthearted Blog on Anxiety?

The light of heart can do more!

This saying says it all. The lighter you feel in mind and emotion, the healthier and happier you feel, the more easily you will move forward into creating a better life on your own terms.

I don’t write or speak in dramatic language when I’m trying to help people solve problems, nor do I try to demonstrate my genius by complicating them. One thing I learned on my long journey is that the lighter you make a problem the easier it is to bear, and the simpler you make it, the easier it is to solve.

As you read this blog just remember that I’m spending my time writing this because, even though I probably don’t know you, I care about what your feeling, what you’re going through, what you’ve been through. I care enough to seek the simplest solutions, because that’s what took the burden from me and helped me to change, and offer them to you in case they’re useful.

I will try to write in amusing images so that maybe you smile the next time something happens instead of cringe. I’ll use imagery that you’re meant to remember easily, so that you don’t have to struggle to recall. I’ll use straightforward words so that they require no effort from you and reading them becomes a break from the complication.

I hope that you’ll go on to live your life that way. Simply, easily, looking for the fastest, least complex solution that you can, so that you move forward from okay, to better, to wonderful, with fewer tears and ongoing hurts. Fewer wasted years!

I write lightheartedly because – as you know – laughter and sleep are the two best medicines, and I definitely don’t want to send you to sleep!

I want to help you to feel light and untroubled enough to move forward and start really living again!

I'm a writer, public speaker, medium, and spiritual thinker. I suffered from acute anxiety from the age of 16 until I was well into my 50s, after fearlessly exploring many ideas, philosophies, and tools, I finally found methods that helped me return my mind to a better normal. One of the things I hated about anxiety was the way people treated me like a fool or a problem, I have two degrees and I'm a (much) retired black belt, my IQ is decent, but I constantly felt like a complete idiot, something that was exacerbated by never feeling like the real me. The girl who could laugh endlessly about the smallest things, and had a real excitement about what life had to offer her. I didn't need anyone else to tell me I wasn't 'right', I knew that better than anyone. My mission now is to support people suffering as I did with a message of support with what they're going through, tools and ideas that might help, and a strong message of hope for the future. At 63, which I am at the time of writing, many people I know are in a rut, yet having beaten anxiety I'm now doing more with my life than I ever did when I was struggling just to get up in the morning, let alone face the day. It's a wonderful feeling - so the main message is that it doesn't matter how long you've been struggling or what age you are, when you beat anxiety you will get an entirely new lease of life - and that's fantastic at any age. On a personal note I'm married to my soul mate, we have 5 cats, and I live in the middle of the UK. I follow a number of fantastic thinkers, as it's important to immerse yourself in healthy thinking as often as you can, I'm a Toastmaster and professional public speaker, and I keep life simple and encourage my clients to do the same, and my friends.
