A quick glance on social media might lead you to think that everyone is leading the perfect life, filled with happiness, money, holidays and everything else we aspire for as humans.
Of course, life isn’t really like that and that’s why I tend to speak more openly about the challenges I’ve had to face rather than the successes I’ve had.
Never have truer words been spoken than in the old adage from Henry Ford: ‘The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing’.
It’s fair to say I wasn’t thinking quite like that in the immediate moment when I had to sell my family home to avoid bankruptcy 20 years ago.
Nor would I say that coming to terms with and mastering my neurodiversity in the form of ADHD has been easy.
But without these challenges, I wouldn't be the person I am today and, more importantly, I wouldn't be able to pass on all that experience to others.
