"VOF Week 2: (The Lonely Warrior)."
I am a wandering gypsy with a restlessness. I was born in England and moved to Australia when I was three. I have probably moved over thirty times in my lifetime here. As a child I always felt lonely, didn't fit in, have had my fair share of abuse of different types. I struggled at school academically all my youth until I had a couple of kind teachers that gave me one on one attention and then I blossomed. I am quite intelligent,I discovered,when I applied myself and had more than one learning tool.
I married into an abusive relationship. We worked together in our own business of which I was quite successful. It became an abusive relationship and very controlling. My daughter asked one one day why I put up with it after I had been chased out of my own home and down the street which happened often. She was twelve at the time and this gave me the queue to leave. I was now single and with two children I needed to find an income otherwise I was still in his control. I became quite sick and I had my sisters looking after me. As I was lying on the coach one day with my sisters around me they told me they had the solution. They said I should join the Airforce (most of my family had joined the forces at some time). Two weeks later I was in the Airforce. My children stayed with my sister a long way from where I was training and I didn't see them for 3 months. I didn't realise how much I missed them until I layed eyes on them again. The tears fell silently to the floor over their shoulders as I hugged them for the first time again. Rookies (Airforce training) was a challenge, especially at my age, 34. Luckily I was very fit and passed. I felt so empowered by this achievement and so proud of myself. I had been told I was worthless so many times I think I believed it until this moment. I have overcome an illness, remarried to a wonderful man 14 years younger than me (we are still together after 12 years), met two wonderful women that are now my business partners and learnt who I am and where I am from. I have overcome abuse, illnesses, injuries from car accidents, self doubt and fear. I loved sport and all types of dancing. I still love singing, toning, meditation and prayer. I am very spiritual and live for the evolvement of humans on this planet and for love and peace. My life experiences have given me the passion to support women and youth and World Pulse has given me the vehicle to do it. In love and light always, Jataia
