The Holstee manifesto inspired me from the first time I read it. It came to me via Facebook and couldn’t have come at a better time in my life. I was going through a major transition (and still am) and the message has helped me to move forward and take control of my life. The words are hugely inspiring and since I first read it – I have reposted it (more than once), bought the poster and the cards and continue to regularly read it. It reminded me of the fact that we are in control of who we are, where we want to be and how we want to live our lives. It gave me hope and inspiration when I found myself at the devastating end of a 21 year marriage and inspired me to move forward and take control and not to continue to lay lying on the floor in a heap. I have made BIG decisions of where I want to live, what my next career move is, how important it is to be kind to others and to believe that I can create the life that I want. It is a reminder to us all that we are strong, whole, creative beings and if we simply believe in ourselves we can go a very long way. Thanks Holstee, you have helped to reshape my life.
