About

Taking Life As It Comes isn’t all about fluffy clouds in an azure blue sky.

It’s also not about giving up, resigning oneself to a miserable life full of impossible challenges.

It’s about my philosophy on Life.

A philosophy that I developed at the age of 18, which has served me well during difficult times throughout my life – and especially during the past 11 years living with breast cancer.

Among other things, Taking Life As It Comes is about

  • Following your Heart
  • Learning to Accept What Is, with grace
  • Feeling Gratitude for moments of Joy
  • Focusing on what you love rather than what you believe you “should” do
  • Enjoying the Present Moment rather than worrying about the future or having regrets about the past
  • Adapting to Change and finding solutions to problems in the Present Moment
  • Leading a life of Ease

The Taking Life As It Comes Blog tells the individual episodes of the story.

In addition to being a writer, I am also an intuitive artist, photographer and film maker.
