I was born in 1978 in middle class England, Surrey, which typically led to university in 1997. I attained a BA Hons Degree studying textiles in Derby where I pretty much drank & partied my way through my degree, I then traveled the rest of my way through my 20’s becoming a self-employed high end chef, owning my first business “Culinary Kate”.
Nearing 30 I was living a good life but inside I was unhappy & a little off balance, shall we say. I had had enough of the partying and binge drinking, I needed change, I needed something new, I needed to find happiness & peace! I packed my backpack for the third time in 2008 and in an “Eat, Pray, Love” style I went to India to find me.
I lived in a meditation resort for four months where life thankfully began and has never stopped turning around.
I spent years exploring different aspects of myself through many different methods; dancing, meditation, healing & Transformational Coaching. However no matter what I tried I was still left feeling unfulfilled and unsatisfied with my life experience.
What I have come to learn over the years about happiness or the lack of it is you have three options, the third not really being an option:
- Change your perspective on how you view the situation that makes you feel unhappy
- Change or move away from the situation
- Stay where you are and suffer
What I offer you are two tools to explore, learn, grow and change, tools that have been very useful for me to come to a point of contentment in my life. This is not to say I have the key to happiness because what makes someone happy today may not be what makes that person happy tomorrow. We are ever growing & evolving throughout life and if we are not then we are dead, wasting life away not really living at all!
