When I was told my newborn baby was blind, developmentally delayed and reliant on medications to survive, my life changed in an instant. I was sucked into a vortex of medical appointments, specialist care, feeding tubes, blood tests, equipment trials, medications and therapy. I had to weather a storm so powerful, a heart ache so unbearable, and a challenge so inconceivable, that I wondered how we'd survive.
I became consumed by my Mackenzie’s challenges and felt trapped by her needs. I didn't feel like there was ever enough time, support, cash flow, resources, energy and sleep.
As a single, socially isolated and unfulfilled special-needs mum my heart was suffocating under a broken relationship, sleepless nights, feeding tubes and procedures. It felt like the essence of who I was came second to my daughter’s needs and I felt trapped by the self-inflicted guilt and shame anytime I did something for myself.
I craved to remember that sense of freedom and connection I felt as a woman before my life was changed by a diagnosis I didn’t understand. I wanted to feel free, express my creativity, deeply connected to my Self and my community and powerful in my own true essence.
So many things needed to change.
Chronically ill, fatigued and a shell of my former self, with the support of friends, family and incredible healers, I decided I was worth it and made a commitment to connect with my passions to find joy.
I left my career as an Occupational Therapist because it no longer fulfilled me. I opted for Soul fulfilment instead
I caravanned the east coast of Australia with my daughter for 6 months - you can read my travel blog at The Road Unseen
I aligned my career choices with my passions as a writer, speaker, coach, yoga teacher and created retreats for special-needs mamas like me
I wrote my first children’s book, The Adventures of Kenzie-Moo, which you can buy here
And I’m writing a memoir about raising my daughter and the choices I've made to create inner freedom and joy in the face of adversity
I empowered myself to shift perspective and expand my mindset to believe I could change my story. I wanted to test the boundaries of my potential and live a creative and passionate version of my Self.
I choose to live in alignment with abundance and joy, free of the confines of a scarcity mindset.
I never imagined being a solo parent to a child with special needs would transform my life in the most powerful way.
My vision is to support as many women as possible to reconnect with the essence of your true Self so you can create inner freedom and joy. To overcome adversity through empowerment and unravel your creative potential.
It’s time to live your purpose, fulfilled and overflowing. It’s time to say yes to You.
