If tomorrow wasn’t promised, how would you live today?
On 5th November 2010, Leola suffered a near fatal ruptured brain aneurysm.
Over the last few years she has learnt a lot about herself; about her limits, what she is capable of and what she can overcome. Leola survived a brain injury, learnt how to walk and talk again, lost her job, was unemployed for over six months, started her own business, and purchased her third home in Sydney.
Leola says if she could give you one piece of advice it would be to DO IT NOW. Go for that new job, ask for the pay rise, wear the pretty dress, show off the expensive jewellery. None of this “I’ll wait for a special occasion. Enjoy it now!”, she says.
Leola says it is funny how life throws you a curveball. It is all about how you react to it – how will this moment define you? Believe that you have the power to change your fate; whatever it may be. After suffering a ruptured aneurysm and ultimately surviving it, I am in the best place I have ever been. So, I thank my lucky stars I was able to go through such hardship to only come out on top.
