"After going through a very serious form of lymphoma and chemo, I was alive but I didn’t feel healthy on the inside. I certainly didn't feel beautiful on the outside. And for the first time in my life, I could no longer push myself and keep going.
When Kate first told me about her course on beauty, I couldn't imagine how much I would enjoy it, and how much I would learn. A course on beauty? With group meetings on the phone? Many times in the past, I’d heard Kate say, “beauty is a decision”. So I decided to take a leap outside my comfort zone and join her course. I’m glad that I made that decision.
During our 1st call, I so was nervous, my hand became numb from holding the phone so tightly. By the end of the course, I felt a lovely connection with the group members. They were all interesting, bright women with their own challenges and wonderful insights. One member made me feel so good about myself, better than I have in a long time. I now have friends from the group I am able to call when I’m experiencing difficulties. I also call when I’m feeling proud of an achievement, or excited about a goal.
Kate really makes it work. Yes, she’s very good at helping us all look good on the outside. More importantly, she knows so many ways we can make ourselves feel healthy on the inside. She’s dedicated many years of her life investigating, researching, and exploring the complex world of health. She helped me start rebuilding my foundation. Her knowledge and encouragement are just what I needed. Her laugh alone helped me start to wake up.
