From Gut-Wrenching to Sky-High Joy: My Unexpected Journey

From Gut-Wrenching to Sky-High Joy: My Unexpected Journey

The day kicked off as quite gut-wrenching.

I found myself drafting emails to several individuals I had previously committed to working with this month. In those messages, I had to convey the unfortunate news that our budget couldn’t accommodate their services. It was a tough decision, and it weighed heavily on me because it was all part of our grand plan to expand the business. However, in these uncertain times, I had to make the difficult choice to consolidate our resources and cut unnecessary expenditures in an attempt to stabilise our cash flow.

But amongst  the turmoil, something truly miraculous happened. One of the companies I frequently collaborate with stepped forward to help me fulfil one of my lifelong dreams – my very own “Oprah moment.” You know the one: “You get a car, you get a car, but I’m changing it to “you get a star.” And the best part?


It’s all happening this December, a dream I’ve cherished for the past five years.

The idea of making others’ dreams come true has always been close to my heart, and now, I have the opportunity to make it a reality.

The day has finally arrived, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I’m immensely grateful to the organisation I’m working with; they’re standing firmly behind me in this endeavour. It’s a reminder that sometimes, you begin the day feeling as though life has dealt you a harsh blow, like a punch in the stomach. However, by day’s end, you can find yourself punching the sky with unbridled joy.

Life is unpredictable, filled with gut-wrenching moments and astonishing turnarounds.

Today, I’m celebrating the latter, and I can’t wait to share this incredible journey with all of you.
