Celebrating my achievements 12 years after divorce!

One of the most important times in my life was when I got married in 1997. I had waited so long! It was like a dream come true. It was therefore very disappointing when, five years later, and with two children, it ended in divorce.

When I sit back now, I wonder how I managed to get through without breaking down. There have been times when I felt like giving up; when I felt there was no light at the end of the tunnel. You wake up one day and feel all right, yet the next you feel as if the world is going to cave in. You project this image to the outside world that all is well, but when you are in your own house behind closed doors, you feel very miserable.

I could go on now and recall every bad thing that happened to me in detail. But I choose not to, as I believe there is no point in reliving the old story. It is time for me to tell a new story, which is full of inspiration and a hope for a better future.



Today I feel a different person than I was then. I have been able to accomplish so much. I work full time from home, I have a part time business, I have set up a support group for lone parents and a charity called confident children.

I have been able to share my experiences and help others by being on TV and Radio.

I have a new strength and motivation, and have been able to reach goals in my life that previously I would have thought impossible.

My main goal now in life is to be an inspiration to others. I believe that everyone is unique and special. We all have special gifts and abilities, which if developed will help us to maximise our potential and be the best we can.

Being on the Independent on Sunday Happy List


I am so honoured and thankful to all those who nominated me for the eighth  annual Happy List, a collection of 100 inspirational heroes and heroines whose kindness, ingenuity and bravery make Britain a better place to live. Everyday, I just try to do my little bit to give people hope and a reason to smile each day as I know too well how it feels at times to sometimes wanting to give up when we are face with life’s challenges. I am also truly inspired just reading about everyone on the list.

The Happy List was founded in 2008 as an antidote to the lists that celebrate wealth as an end in itself, the Happy List is based on a different set of values. It honours individuals who give rather than take; the great Britons doing the very best work who go largely unnoticed and unrewarded. The Happy List is backed by the Prime Minister.
