“A Life Beyond Fear is a Life with Freedom”
I wrote my book last year as I wanted to tell my mums story about her travels around the US and Canada back in 1958 when she was just 19 years old. She and 2 friends threw on some backpacks and hitchedhiked with not a lot of money from Canada to Mexico experiencing life, meeting incredible people and luckily for me she diarised their adventures.
She passed away just over 11 years ago, and last Summer I felt a little lost in my life so I decided to re-connect with her through those adventures. Putting fear, any sensible thoughts aside, and my stuff in storage, off I went and travelled with her diaries to all the places she did 61 years earlier. I noticed how things had changed or not changed but most importantly of all diarising my own adventures and ‘There’s Always a Hitch’ was written. Little did I know that I would be living the title. For mum and the girls there was always a hitchhike and for me there was always a ‘hitch’ and how I overcome them.
Through my mentoring, writing a blog and the book, my mission is to inspire high achieving, affluent women who may feel frustrated, stuck and fearful to put themselves out there, get in touch with their inner adventurer and have the courage to do something they may have dismissed before. Fear keeps us stuck but going beyond it gives us freedom.
Have a bucket list you have always wanted to tick off? Well, lets get started!
