If you don't like something change it

Design it, Change it, Speak it.

When faced with life’s challenges my mums favorite quote comes to mind “If you don’t like something change it”. This was never truer than in May 2014.

Cancer is a word you'd never want to hear and hearing that my mum had been diagnosed was one of the scariest days of my life. Thankfully we are one of the lucky families. It was caught early and has been cured. Within days of the diagnosis I looked for something positive, something I could change and control. I chose running and fundraising. I signed up for the 2014 Oxford Half Marathon for Macmillan Cancer Support. I did the 5K Race for Life for Cancer Research in July as well, which I have also done in 2015 and intend to keep doing yearly.

Throughout this time friends and family pointed out to me that I deal with life in a particular way, once I put some thought into it I realized that some of the skills, which help me will help others too. So now here we are with Design it, Change it, Speak it.

Come back soon to see how the site expands with ideas, inspiration and tips.
