While I can, I'm not going to use some 'clever' word-play to paint a picture-perfect version of myself to you. What I will say is I'm someone who has a great deal of practice in rebounding from the act and art of doing dumbness. Which probably makes us have more in common than you may have initially thought. My accolades and achievements are trivial in the grand scheme of things. Truth be told, degrees don't mend broken hearts, nor does experience erase bad decisions. Really, all I am is a girl, saved by God's amazing grace-in that He's the only reason I'm still relatively sane. I've finally grasped the infamous church mother's tagline. You know the one: 'You don't know like I know what the Lord has done for me!' What matters most about me can be aptly conveyed in the words of Apostle Paul: I know how to survive in tight situations, and I know how to enjoy having plenty. In fact, I have learned how to face any situation: fed or hungry, with or without. My life is not short on exciting moments that make for amusing stories. 

In today’s episode, Raquel shares: 

  • How we need to change our perspective on life's events to embrace our now and look forward to the future.
  • Everything you need you already have. 
  • For every cause there is an effect, and for every action, there's a reaction

Raquel’s humour and straight talk attitude is a breath of fresh air as she talks today about how we often think we've missed out on something by assuming that the ‘one who got away’ was our only chance at happiness. However, we can look at it another way, maybe we saved them some heartache, or it was a blessing in disguise for us. Tune in, because we promise you, no one can just make this stuff up!
