Vulnerability is strength!

What a wonderful conversation. Inspiring and uplifting. Thank you, Suranne. Sharing your personal journey has inspired me to take a deeper dive into my own. I admire how you have somehow persevered through it all. I’ll move forward boldly (just like the great A.Lister ..that you play sooo soo well), believing that all will be okay. Wishing you all the best ahead!

Suranne Jones + Alice Liveing = healing

Listening to Alice’s podcasts have been a supportive and enlightening part of my commutes. However, the first few weeks of lockdown have had me doing many other (homely) things and I hadn’t listened in. When I made time today to listen to Alice and Suranne Jones whilst tidying up, time stopped. My eyes started welling up as I realized how often women compartmentalize and push down invisible stress, until it takes a physical toll. Having just lost my father to dementia a couple weeks ago, working in new ways from home, not getting to the gym, that old nemesis insomnia rearing its head again, I could see I am heading to an unhealthy place and will seek help. Thank you both for being so supportive and courageous, you are helping more people than you could possibly know. 🤗
