Beyond Strong. The Thing Is, Life Goes On.

Beyond Strong. The Thing Is, Life Goes On.

Meet Jazz from “Just Wingin’ It”.  A woman I am proud to have met.  Hers is a story of survival.  A story of why you should trust yourself and stand up for what you know, in your heart of hearts, is right. Even when all the experts say no! Jazz is the ultimate warrior, a mum and a friend you’d want on your side.  But the pain and trauma that this lady lives with each day is what makes her special.  Make no mistake, no mama would want to live her pain.  Yet, she gets up and moves forward, spreading the love. She teaches us how to stay true to ourselves, that it’s okay to not be okay and sometimes a big belly laugh is just what the doctor ordered. I remember the day, ten years ago. Splashed across the news was the reports of the most horrific accident you could be faced with as a parent.  Jazz’s children crushed out the front of their home as they came home from school, by the gate and brick pillar that was not reinforced properly. I remember the feeling of sickness that riddled my body. The tears that welled in my eyes. The hurt in my heart for that Mama and the horror story she was now living.  None of us knew the half of it as Jazz explains below, nor did I realise that ten years down the track that our paths would cross and that we would have the opportunity to strike up a friendship with many experiences and passions in common. Jazz is a woman to be admired. ...
