Fighting Back to Happiness

Episode Summary

A shock diagnosis and a mental health crisis led Zoe to make BIG changes and choices.

Episode Notes

Zoe's son was diagnosed at two years old with a genetic chromosome disorder.  Zoe lived one day at a time, fighting anyone who limited his potential.  

However, after bottling everything up her husband had a mental health crisis and it made her review both her and her family's outlook and how they communicate with each other.

Zoe's son lived his life in the moment and Zoe realised that she needed to do the same and create her own happiness.

Zoe talks about how having a positive outlook has had a positive impact on other people.  

It really is ok to say you are feeling great or happy.

As she became more aware of who she was Zoe realised that the career she was in was not right for her, so she made the decision to retrain and run her own business.  Supporting other people who have been in a similar position to herself.

In this podcast episode, Zoe talks about how she learned to look at her feelings.   

Finding out what makes you happy and following that path.  Knowing what makes you happy is important, we seem to put what we enjoy last.  However, if we are happy it makes the people around us happy.
