Hi there and welcome to Inspiring Max! I am married with children and all my working life, I have helped people improve their mental health and quality of life. Celebrating my 50th birthday recently, caused me to choose to change my life and do things differently. Commencing this blog, a place where I share my thoughts, experiences, travels and other things from the patchwork quilt of my life, is one of these life changes.
I believe the way you look at the world changes your outcomes, and I always focus on the positives in any situation. Developing a spark of hope into a fire that warms you and lights your path is my goal. Life is too short not to make the most of what we have.
Joining Toastmasters in 2010, I began to understand the difference between verbal and written communication and I have found my voice public speaking. Through Inspiring Max, I hope to find my voice online, which is a challenge, as my life has been private up to this point.
The double rainbow is a rare and beautiful thing that inspires even more hope. It reminds us that after the storm there can be a beautiful ending. At the time I took this photo from Melbourne Aquatic Centre in 2011, life wasn’t necessarily easy but by focusing on the positive, gold was eventually found at the end of the rainbow, in the most surprising places.
I hope that you too can find some inspiration following the double rainbow, and that you choose to come with me on this journey of discovery .
