Over the last 6 or so years, I have been posting a lot about mental health and wellbeing.
I have shared a lot of what I have gone through over my years on this planet.
🕸 My battle with suicide and depression.
🕸 Being abandoned by my Dad before I was born.
🕸 My battle with alcohol and breaking a family trait.
🕸 The death of my Grandad, the most important man to grace my life.
🕸 Abandoning myself and others because it’s easier to deal with than owning my shit.
🕸 Being afraid to go after what I really want because I’m scared that I might actually get it.
🕸 And a few other stories to boot.
These “Stories,” have been a huge mental battle to try and overcome, and continue to both plague me and motivate me.
On some days they cripple to the point where getting out of bed and driving through into this world just seems like a pointless task because while crippling there is a belief that these “Stories,” are a depiction of who I truly am.
The great thing about stories is that we have a choice whether we believe them or not, this is our privilege as human beings.
I am taking this time to look at these stories of mine to realise that these are just the beginning of a “Rocky Balboa,” esque journey that I would like you as my friends and followers to come along with me so that we together can create our own comeback story.

Since the day I started on this path to help and support others there have been 2 very common reasons WHY!
1️⃣ The first, and the journey I want to help and support you with, is that there are so many people out there in the world from all different aspects of life that could fill my cobwebs section of this post just as I have.
Along our way through life, the general education system failed to provide us with the tools and support that we needed to deal with the aspects of life that we struggle to talk about.
That does not however mean that we have to travel through the rest of our life trying to figure it all out on our own or worse still just ignore the pain that these situations create.
We have an opportunity to learn, train, adapt and evolve to become a person that we truly know that we can be if given the opportunity.
So here I am offering this opportunity to you, to let me start to guide you down a path, that is filled with education, tools and support around resilience, trust, community and purpose.

2️⃣ Following on from this, there is still a huge gap in the education system around wellbeing, resilience and how to take ownership of ourselves.
Now it’s freaking tough to make changes in any political system and although we are starting to see schools help support the wellbeing of their students it is always going to be a tough and lengthy process.
So here is where my drive and passion to effect change comes into play. Just a few months ago I had the privilege of being able to start to craft my skills in public speaking. This has since given me the opportunity to hold 2 keynote speeches as well as have the true privilege to run a workshop on resilience at a school.
This was a beautiful realisation as it showed me that one man can have a huge effect on many, even amidst the grand task of changing the education system.
We just have to be brave, and my newfound bravery will take me on a journey to persist to support our youth through implementing more talks and workshops.

⚡️ As I read this back to myself when writing, an immense amount of fear and judgement runs through my mind trying to imagine how it will be received, but like many of the journeys that we travel through it is not the judgement that matters, it is the reason why you chose to take that journey in the first place because you are the only one that can truly stop you.
📣 Over the next few weeks, I am going to be opening up my 8-week course called “IT’S YOUR TIME,” for sign up opportunities. I will also be running FREE online webinars to give you some of the best lessons that you can learn through being a part of this course.
I will release the dates shortly.
🎗 For any of my beautiful friends who have any links to any schools, facilities, businesses, groups etc. that are looking for any speakers or needing workshops facilitating, I am here ready and prepped to look at any opportunities that present themselves, so please feel free to share this with any potentially interested parties.
❤️ Forever grateful for your support and belief in me.
IT’S YOUR TIME – That time is NOW!!!
