I am a survivor. I’ve fallen and broken, sobbed and surrendered. Only to learn, laugh, pick myself up and stagger onwards on this exciting, miraculous journey called life.

You’re a survivor too, dear reader. And that is why we’re going to get along.

But life is about more than just surviving. The world is an astonishingly magnificent place. Yes, it can be full of hardship, pain and suffering. But it’s also full of love, laughter, sharing and learning.

In this blog, I’m going to give tips on how to survive the challenges we all come across. I’ll reveal some of the heart breaking and hilarious episodes from my life. I don’t claim to be an expert, psychoanalyst, spiritual leader, or even the new Oprah Winfrey. I’m just a survivor, who loves to write.

In reality, surviving these obstacles is a lot more challenging than simply following a list of tips but I hope that my stories and recommendations will help you on your journey, give you ideas, and make you realise that you are not alone. And I’m sure you’ll come up with a few useful tips of your own.

Please feel free to make comments, and to divulge some of your stories and tips. Let’s take this journey together. To survival and beyond.

  1. This is the most fabulous “about me” section I’ve ever seen. You’re lovely 🙂

  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I found yours a few days ago, and I love the statement you wrote, “But life is about more than just surviving. The world is an astonishingly magnificent place…” is such a warming thought.

    Welcome to my blog and I hope to see you there often!

  3. I miss your beautiful posts, Sharon. I hope you’re not done writing 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Hi Sharon, I like your website and your writing. Keep it going! Have a nice weekend.

    • Thank you, Gráinne 🙂
      As you may know, it was one of your images on Facebook that had a link to The Moonlight Sonata. Beautiful. Helped relax me big time last night. And loved the picture!
      Where do you get the pics? Do you take/make them??

  5. I love your blog. Read some, can’t wait to read the rest 🙂

  6. Thanks, Ciara! Glad you like it 🙂

  7. Fabulous blog! I wear my scars proudly, they make me who I am and they have blessed me with wisdom.
    Thank you for sharing your stories. 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Morgan!
      I’m glad to see you’re doing the same.
      This is what life should be about – sharing what has made us stronger in order to help and inspire others who are going through a rough patch.

  8. Ok…I think I’ve read everything now. I absolutely love your voice when you write. You are definitely on my list of interesting and fascinating people. Glad I found you. Or you found me. Not quite sure which happened first :/

    • Fair play to ya! Think there are over 60 posts at this point…
      Thank you so much for following, commenting and encouraging. It means a lot.
      It could have been the beautiful Jaclyn Rae who introduced us…

  9. I just started homeopathy for an undiagnosed chronic illness that has taken my life away and I am so more than hopeful. I truly see it as a panacea that our government will never acknowledge out of greed. I am so happy for you and your recovery. Life is so exciting and getting a second chance makes me want to live such a better, deeper existence than I was before.

  10. I just came across some of your wonderful blogs, Sharon, also on homeopathy. I am very worried now as I treat my-self as a lay person with homeopathic remedies. I read from one practicioner that a lot of harm can be done if one uses the incorrect remedy or takes a remedy for too long, which I will have done many times. I also use multiple remedies at once.

    • Hi there,
      Don’t worry too much. I also self-treat and sometimes use more than one remedy at a time. However, it is best not to overdo a remedy as that could “prove” the remedy- give you the unwanted symptoms that you’re trying to get rid of.
      I hope that helps.
      Best of luck,

  11. can I just talk with u .. u know I too have the same problem of overimagining… and am suffering from FPP (fantasy prone personality).. can u suggest me some good tricks to avoid it dearly.
