This is where I found myself a few years ago. I was in my 40s, unexpectedly pregnant with my fourth child, and everything around me seemed to be crumbling. I realise now that I was putting unfair pressure on myself to be everything to everyone. And as a result, I reached for temporary fixes to get me through what felt like a cyclone of devastating events.
That period of life led to my own self-reflection of who I am, how I view myself, how I treat my body and the expectations I have of myself. And ultimately, it led to the launch of My Beautiful Self in 2018.
Through my own education and learnings, I completely changed my mind-set and lifestyle. Did everything and everyone in my life change too? No, however the choices I made had a positive impact on various parts of my life - the ‘flow-on effect’.
