How to turn a negative situation in to a positive one
Lindsey Cole has been affected by loss, grief and self harm. In this episode she shares her experiences of turning a harrowing time in her life, into a positive adventure. Lindsey is the kind of person who pushes herself and just goes for it.
Lindsey has had to deal with grief at a young age. Losing her father, when she was just 24, she threw herself into adventure, which, in her own words, is ‘the most wonderful medicine’. Her list of extreme achievements is such a long one, but includes cycling from Cairo to Cape Town, circumnavigating Australia with truck drivers, and in 2018, she swam the length of the River Thames, dressed as a mermaid (!), to raise awareness of plastic pollution in our waterways.
You can find out more about Lindsey and keep up with her adventures over at her website (where you can also donate to her crisis page).
Thanks so much to Lindsey for this inspirational episode. I could have chatted for hours! Would love to know what kind of adventures you are planning too, let me know in the comments!
