Everyone has an Inner-Strength
Updated: Mar 21, 2019
My life was normal until cancer decided to take up residence in my son at age 20 years.
At 22, it sent him to the other side of life and me into a vortex that I did not think I would ever survive or come out the right side up. In hindsight, I would never have joined him, but it is very scary to think that your mind can take you to that place as mine did.
From Googling how to join my son to discovering the world of Pageantry online; all in one Sunday morning at 2 am after a couple of glasses of bubbles, couldn't sleep, my brain hot wired, to four fast years forward being crowned Ms World at 60 years old beating 22 countries from the age of 26 yo in Seattle USA, I could never imagined what I could create only the power of positivity.
My chosen charity and community platform is in Childhood Cancer Research with the Scott Canner Young Investigator Grant through Tour De Cure I gained world-wide status, and now realise I am far better off being here earthbound, that life happens for you, not to you. I have, over time, been able to climb over obstacles and I'm more in control of my everyday movements and have so much to offer.
Everyday is still hard to fathom, but I am driven in a mind-set that I didn't know existed within me.
Watch this space for my next blog, and always know that we all have our trails and hidden inner strength. You just have to look for it.
Age is no barrier. Life is no dead-end. You are fabulous.
