I always wanted a true, unpretentious life filled with happiness, harmony and purpose. But somehow I took so many turns and detours, that I caused myself more anguish than simplicity – most of the time! Over the years various stints were part of my journey to find that point of arrival where I can call my life — TRUE.
So what was it exactly that I saw in my mind’s eye? A free spirit surrounded by beautiful things…music, art, books,nature … a type of sophisticated “hippie mom” with my children, husband and dogs! Not so easy if you always feel that you are not quite good-enough. And worse – if you even doubt your own likes, dislikes and style!
Well, only when my husband and I moved to an isolated African village in the Kalahari dessert, where rubbish, mistreated animals, poverty, drought and intense heat, became our reality, did I find my TRUE LIFE.
This is my journey to a true and simple life through horrendous mistakes, many days of regret and tears. Hopefully it can inspire you to push through to that REAL TRUE YOU – although I have not nearly arrived and learn and grow as I travel …..
