Recommended Read: Dr Libby Weaver - The Beauty Guide

I have read many books and there is no one that has described our every day health and skin issues in 'plain english' like Libby does. I rate this book 5/5 and I think it should be a staple in every house hold.

"Kia ora

Thank you, Hayley, for the opportunity to share a bit of a story with this awesome community.
Thirty years ago, I was with a group of colleagues who had decided to swim across a reservoir. Roughly half way across, I took a dive, and got entangled in the plant life on the bottom.

The more I struggled, the more stuck I was. Could see no escape. I was terrified and alone.
Here’s the thing; one of the guys on the boat happened to be looking in the right direction at the right time; spotted me go down, spotted I wasn’t coming up again.
So I heard afterwards
- without hesitation, he leaped in, swam to where I was trapped, and the next moment, a strong arm was around me, dragging me to the surface, pulling me to the safety of that boat.

Not for him, I wouldn’t be here today, and nor would my children... Which I always find quite an uncanny thought. Over the years since that happened, probably not a week has gone by that I don’t think of him, and that, when I was stuck in the depths, someone spotted me, and pulled me out.

That’s a big part of why I do what I do. And that’s why we’ve all got to keep doing what we’re doing; scanning the surface, noticing, and not hesitating.
I hear a lot of “If you’re struggling, reach out.” We all need to hear and know that.

But it’s not the only answer.

Sometimes it’s not that easy. Putting down the device, making time to visit a friend, colleague or relative you’ve perhaps not seen for a while, or who you’ve noticed might be slipping under the surface – that’s the magic.

Arohanui,
Jamie Executive Officer, Taranaki Retreat

Thank you so much Jamie x
