When life gives you lemons it can sometimes be tough to make lemonade. You can be the most positive person in the world and then, suddenly, you’re dealing with an event that sours everything. For Tamsin Napier-Munn, her life for a long time wasn’t about sparkling and thriving; it was a test of endurance – something to survive – as one grenade after another dropped into her world. As she so movingly puts it in this week’s Sparkle and Thrive Podcast episode, ‘I know what it feels like for anyone who has given up hope’. But know this: if Tamsin, given everything she’s been through, can bravely fight her way back, you can too.
Here’s why you need to tune in
It seems fitting that Tamsin’s episode should conclude our wonderful Be Brave and Sparkle series. Hers is a story that defines what bravery means and will resonate with anyone seeking courage in adversity. Tamsin’s not interested in your sympathy, she just wants you to know that there is always hope… you just need to find the will to push yourself forward. It’s about having the bravery to deal with life’s lemons – to throw back those grenades – and then finding the courage to show up, be seen and be heard.
And, thanks to the simple formula that Tamsin sets out in this episode, you’ll come out believing that anything is possible. So don’t let anything stop your sparkle twinkling.
