Kate Christie’s wonderful life fell to pieces not once, but twice, in a matter of a few years and then she really had to look at and work out, what it was she wanted from her life; from the years ahead that she had left to be able to live as full and active life as possible.
Turning 50, already a successful business woman, and mother of three teenage children, she found the foundations of her world were shifting dramatically. She was facing a future that was vastly different to what she had planned; she was forced to look at who she was and who she wanted to be as the years rolled along.
After the death of her ex-husband at the age of 54, she decided perhaps it was her moment in time to begin to be ‘selfish’ about how she used her time to holistically change her world and most importantly, how to find other women who also feel and live the way she wanted to; she needed to find her tribe.
Enticed by her daughter to go skiing in France for the first time in her life, at first she was strongly resistant, but as the time passed she decided that if she was ever going to make a change in her life, this could be the catalyst, the challenge or the ‘moment’ in her life when she could be ‘audacious’, leaving behind her fears, creating a fresh new beginning.
As her journey evolved she made the decision to put it into book form, to reach out to other women facing a similar personal crisis, or who simply had an overwhelming desire to change and live their life to the fullest extent.
