First of all, thank *you* to you the reader for taking the time to share some of this incredible story that is my life with me, thank you a hundred times over.
I hope you enjoy this retelling of my quest to become the hero of my own life. This living memoir was begun in late 2009, when I returned home from Ireland, and realised that in order for my outer world to change, I had to change my inner world through changing myself. Not an easy journey no, but all of the friends mentioned below made it possible.
Thus I am very grateful to all of the people who have inspired me in my life, and shared their wisdom with me. They are truly too many to name, but most especially: Katrina Claire Brougham (myself), and Alexander Paul Garside. You have helped me grow into whom I have always dreamed I could be. I am eternally grateful.
