Susan Biggar, author of The Upside of Down, presented to our my manifesto mates.
From our own impressions of the occasion and the feedback we have had from you, it was a very enjoyable evening. Susan was open-hearted, authentic, and generous. We all felt her genuineness and her warmth. Her story is both a celebration and an acknowledgment that so many things in life are out of our control, but the attitude she chooses to take is encapsulated in her question, ‘How do I reframe this positively so that it works for me?’
Her story is no feel-good Pollyanna one; she shared with us that she was currently experiencing a set-back personally but all of those who have read her book, The Upside of Down, (and please do pick it up and treat yourself) will not be surprised that she came to speak to us anyway. Not only did she come, but she let us see her emotions; they were there but held in check by the strength of her commitment to see this through in much the same way as she sees life through: ‘If not me, then who?’
Thank you once again Susan for joining the my manifesto community and choosing to speak with our banner at your back.
