What's Your Story?
Have you ever felt overwhelmed, tired, worn out & questioning what you are doing & how long you can continue?
Yes me too !
I know how you feel as I felt the same way!
I was at a crossroad after having our third child whilst on maternity leave !
You see, up until that time I served my Country as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer in the Air Force for 17 years & was so blessed to have been given so many incredible experiences others might never & was also blessed to have been part of an incredible military family, having friends all around Australia as a result but I remember there was a time when I just woke up & thought how could I continue this ego driven career, having someone else raise our children, working extra long hours for what ? I was told as a female years prior that I couldn’t do that career so I said, “move over & watch me!”
I was blessed to have met my wonderful husband of almost 20 years on the tarmac at 486 Sqn.. yes just like a Top Gun Romance..but ...
I knew something had to change !
During the maternity leave my whole Squadron moved to Townsville which meant that if I was to go back to work, our family would be separated!
What the gift during that time was space as that space allowed me the time to manifest !
You see .. what I know is the Universe always rewards what you ask for !
However .. I asked for change but never did I expect a full on tragedy to wake me up !
Never did I expect to find our little boy floating in our backyard pool on my watch, that I fortunately was so blessed to discover & be able to resuscitate !
What a way to wake up !!
Yes at that moment .. it changed me forever as with the help of the media & my absolute desire to scream this story & the many lessons I learnt from the rooftops, caused me to jump into the unknown & make the decision to not go back to my career but instead .. make a massive difference & that’s what I did !
Was it scary? Of course it was as it was the unknown & most definitely outside my comfort zone!
You see what I now realise is .. everything I needed was within me & my why became bigger than my why not as I suddenly had a message to deliver to help others realise I’m not unique & this can happen to anyone & what if they didn’t have the skills I had ? How could I move past that guilt ?
You see ... you can’t unknow something once it happens especially for & not to you !
I became a crazy woman on a mission & suddenly crazy as it sounds .. the training I created by sharing my experiences suddenly became highly sought after & the Company began winning & becoming finalist in many local & national Business Awards & that’s without a Business plan in sight !
Along with this, I am also blessed to be involved in the media extensively, contribute to many books, also Co author & contribute to many other Events, magazines, newspapers & national & International radio & podcast Shows ... I even jumped in boots & all & ran the Gold Coast Success Women’s Network group for 18 months implementing things I wanted to see, to add value & create a place other women in Business would flock for connections & support! What a blessing to be able to practise & see the growth in this Business also !
I often sit back & think it’s a dream & think just where I’d be & what I’d be doing right now, had God not have chosen me to make this difference!
I realise now that nothing has meaning except the meaning you give & another person could have the same incident & have a totally different outcome which is the gift !
You see .. what I realise then is everything, every adversity I’d ever overcome .. my crappy childhood .. everything .. God was preparing me for that very moment as he knew I’d had the strength & resilience & the guts & determination to create something so many others would benefit & better protect their loved ones, but there’s always more . You see ..to me, I now realise life is constantly changing & now that Company, First Aid Yucan2 is set up & running effectively, isn’t there others that had the same feeling or questioning, “ is there more ?”
How could I sit back, & know what I know & not do anything about it?
You see .. climbing a mountain is incredible but it’s the lessons you learn along the way are powerful!
I now know I have a responsibility to help others discover what I did, to be able to remove the clutter & tune into their heart to discover their gifts, life purpose but without the tragedy for if I don’t step up & create .. how could I live with myself if others created similar tragedies ? What if I could intervene & they learn what they need & discover their life purpose without the tragedy?
Imagine how that would feel ?
I know with every tragedy, it’s that persons journey & they learn many lessons as a result but what if they weren’t as strong as I & they put a different meaning to it ?
I now have a responsibility to create programs, using different processes to help others remove blocks, fears so they can discover & then if they choose, shine their light brightly also !
I’ve been so blessed to have been immersed in personal development also & have some of the Worlds best mentors guide me too but what I learnt is I had very similar stories to theirs & was doing similar things already so what it’s done for me by surrounding myself with some of the best, is to give me energy to know I’m on the right track & to just continue doing what I’m doing ! Gift !
I have now created Workshops & affordable global Retreats I also manifested to help others be vulnerable to share with the view to overcome any fears, to jump outside that comfort zone , to understand that thing that happened, was a gift, to see it from another perspective so they too can stop listening to their head & tune into their heart as I did , to discover their gifts also & have the faith to follow the divine guidance we all have in our heart , see, hear & feel the love all around & BE the change in the World they need to see !
And to realise that we are Capable of manifesting anything, whether good or bad as I now see that perhaps taking on someone else’s pain when we discovered a drowning occurred in the community we were living Just a year before, that perhaps those feelings I had manifested our own drowning when I was asking is there more to life ?
Just something to be aware that our thoughts lead to feelings lead to action & results so what if you filled your life with positive thoughts & dreams & put the energy to those things, rather than listening to the News.. just what could you create?
Within the Yucan2 community, we laugh, we cry, we grow .. it’s a safe environment to share, support each other & hold each other up on those days when we feel like throwing in the towel, to nurture growth, to share wins, challenges & Keep each other accountable so we all can Be the change in the World we need to see & live our best Lives yet !!
Let me help you discover your “y” by deciding Yucan so you can live a Life u deserve!!
Yucan2...Transforming Lives across the Globe!
What is the toughest decision you have ever made?
What to cook every meal for our dinner.. I find it so difficult.. If someone asks me what they’d like, that’s ok to cook, but having to decide, for me is a difficult task
What is the easiest decision you have ever made?
Making the decision to jump into the unknown after the tragedy, with the desire to help as many as I could learn from my mistakes so they could avoid their own!
Who is your role model and why?
Lisa Nichols & Oprah Winfrey as they both had terrible childhoods with big adversities but made the decision that it would not define who they are, but instead made the decision to change, be cautious of who they surround themselves with and share their Stories to the World in an attempt to inspire others & impact the World in a positive way! They are both relatable & their stories are very impactful & show just what you can achieve when you focus on the outcome you desire.
What is your SUPER Power?
Feeling energy & manifesting magic
When have you been the most satisfied in your life?
Watching our children have fun and thrive at things that excite them
What things do you not like to do?
Don’t like to engage in whinging or gossiping about others at all
What is the most important thing about what you want to do?
Helping others realise their gifts and help facilitate this massive transformation to watch them shine in their chosen field is such an important and yet wonderful gift, as living a life on purpose creates energy & helps be the change in the World we all need to see! That would be such a blessing!
Do you believe books can change the world?
Absolutely, particularly this incredible 1000 Ripple Affects Book as it allows inspiring authors to share their most valuable lessons and stories and if we are all this knowledge, it would allow the community or those readers to have an added advantage to grow and thrive in this World!
What is your ultimate goal?
To continue to follow the divine guidance even more that’s in my heart, see, hear and feel the love more, act in certainty with an attempt to BE the change in the World I need to see!
What Ripple Effect Would you start in the world and why?
Have everyone consider, with every obstacle, challenge or win etc, to consider another perspective to the situation so we can all see the beauty in everything we do & consider what love would do?
If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
Focus on positive change & encourage the negative situations we all face, to share how just by consciously being aware, how just by changing our focus, language & physiology of every situation faced.. how we can change it to not wonder how to make the change, but use it to focus on the best outcome desired!
What do you prefer?
Beach or Mountains?
Sweet or spicy?
Window or aisle?
Ice-Cream or Custard?
