Each and everyone of us has a driving force to accomplish even the smallest and mundane tasks in our lives, others a drive to leave behind a legacy to be remembered. A potential, a skill, a talent…..
Too often a person never ever finds a way forward. Is never supported or even driven in the wrong direction or continues to turn around and around in roundabouts or finds a road with a dead end.
The driving force which led me to my first book was to help people with mental, psychological issues of experiences and feelings of pain. After having witnessed first hand with more than 200 adults – abuse, mentally, physically, emotionally and environmentally, of rape, addictions, abandonment, guilt, loneliness, financial problems, relationship breakdowns, illness, cancer – the list is endless.
I thought how could I achieve this? What would I have to do? How can I reach an audience? It was almost frightening but at the same time exciting.
How did I answer this or come to the conclusion “IF ONLY THEY HAD HEARD – this WORD, SENTENCE, SEEN THIS PICTURE, PHOTOGRAPH, COLOUR – IF ONLY”
That’s how it began THE LOVE OF A CHILD WHO IS NOW AN ADULT.
THE POWER, THE DRIVE, THE FORCE – TO ACCOMPLISH, TO CREATE, TO INNOVATE, TO CHANGE, ONE WORD AT A TIME, ONE LIFE, ONE WAY, ONE CHILD.
