When Co-Vid started Debra rewrote her book “Get: Better; Stronger; Smarter”. With people feeling frightened and the upheaval caused by lockdown, not seeing family and friends, Debra felt we needed to focus on living.
During our discussion we talked about grief and loss and the need to accept what is. Debra shared her horrific year, 2014 and the journey through to once again thriving.
