I have lived has an expat for the past 26 years, living in the Middle East and European countries. What have I learnt from this you may ask? Having and raising children in foreign countries teaches you many lessons! Every day was an adventure in Istanbul.
I am a certified Life Coach and an enthusiastic student of psychology. Using my knowledge and experiences, I would like to encourage you to step outside your comfort-zone. Broadening your horizons to give you the courage to experience more of what this wonderful world has to offer. We very rarely get it right on our first attempt; sometimes a little encouragement is all we need to give us the fortitude to follow our dreams.
We each have intrinsic value. A soul and a smile and a right to a successful life. This is a vault of my observations on human behaviour and ways to self improvement.
Thanks for reading!

P.S. I’d love to do something for you in return, and thought that perhaps a little card in your snail post box would provoke your smile… If you didn’t mind sharing your postal address with me, please email me.
Thank you Joanna for your kind words. I have found over the years that it is only when we spend time crawling alone through shadows that we truly appreciate what it is to stand in the sun. We gain in strength as we deal with life.
You’re so right about that, Julia. But sometimes I wish life didn’t demand so much strength from me… But then again, would I otherwise appreciate little joys as much as I do now?, the peacefulness of early mornings when I look over the mountains from my garden, in my new country…
Thank you very much again for your wise & empowering presence online!
All the best to you & yours,
Love your blogs.
Hope you have your own page, too, that I can follow.
Keep inspiring us.
All the best❤️
