New Beginnings

I’ve been thinking for a while that I wanted to start sharing some of my thoughts about navigating life when it throws you unexpected challenges.  My life has taken me on a journey of things that I never expected in my wildest dreams.

Beautiful Laurz is about how to bring a little bit of love to your life.  Some days it may require COURAGE, STRENGTH and BRAVERY to allow yourself to be YOU.

I never expected that I would be a single mum when I was pregnant with my first child 12 years ago.  I was happily married, had a perfect Californian bungalow family home, my career was climbing up the corporate ladder and I had a strong network of family and friends.

I think if someone would have forecast my future I would have run a mile.  Just as well for me that I had never seen a clairvoyant!  At no time had I imaging being a sole parent of two wonderful boys after a very traumatic divorce.  Now that I am finally coming out the other side of this very difficult time, I want to share my experience and offer some advice on rebuilding your life.

I hope that I can give insight on how I fumbled my way through this period and have re-learnt who I am, my values and to love life.
