Kay Johnson, Founder of Soothing Your Soul
Life can be a bit of a roller coaster at times. It’s frightening when you’re stuck on board and feel you can’t get off, as you lurch from one nerve-racking crisis to the next.
You’re worried about anything and everything, and are wondering if you can cope. There’s too much to do and not enough hours in the day. Things start slipping out of your control. And if that’s not bad enough, you can’t switch off at the end of the day and get a good night’s sleep.
Go back 25 years, and that’s how it was for me.
I was overwhelmed at work and could barely keep my head above water. I had research studies to conduct, staff to manage, client meetings to attend and public speaking commitments to fulfil. I just couldn’t come up for air. What’s more, I often found myself working with people who had very different values and agendas to my own; it felt like I was fighting the enemy within.
On the brighter side, my family and social life was brimming over. I played lots of sport, went to concerts, took up new hobbies and enjoyed eating out with friends. But looking back, I realize I never stopped. I was always doing and never being.
And worst of all, two personal relationships ran their course and finished with all the emotional turmoil that a parting brings. I was heart-broken. My world turned upside down.
The Wake-Up Call
I’d always been a born worrier, but kept going, no matter what.
Then came that awful moment when I felt like I was going round in a bubble, disconnected from the rest of the world. I could see out, but felt so isolated from everything going on round me. Struggling to cope and get a grip, my body just gave up. Turns out my immune system was shot to bits.
I knew I needed help getting my strength and stamina back, but it also dawned on me that if I wanted to find peace of mind and lasting happiness, something had to change.
And that was the turning point.
The Path to Happiness
Little by little, I discovered some amazing, easy-to-use techniques that helped me get back on track. Life’s difficulties seemed easier to sort out. Things that would have sent my stress level soaring became more manageable. And demanding people weren’t so difficult to deal with. Things started looking up.
Best of all, situations that would have filled me with fear lost their hold over me. They became challenges to overcome and move on. I found I could handle things that I previously thought were impossible, and each time this happened, my confidence and self-esteem went up a notch. I was over the moon!
Along the way, I also realized that if I wanted to find lasting happiness and contentment, I had to be true to myself, to listen to the song inside of me and be guided by the still, small voice at the back of my mind.
And now, I have a warm, re-assuring glow deep inside, no matter what’s happening on the outside!
Peace of Mind at Last
Since going on this life-changing journey, my new approach has been put to the test many times, often in heart rending situations. But through it all, I’ve come to appreciate that if you stay true to yourself, and adopt a few simple, transformational techniques, you’ll find the peace you’re looking for.
So, if you’re feeling lost and weighed down by troubles and worries, you’re in the right place.
Soothing Your Soul will help you create a calmer, happier life; a life where you find peace of mind and can laugh again; a life where you have greater choice and can accomplish all you want.
