My name is Clare G Turner and I have just finished reading Anthon's book.
I was involved in a very dramatic accident involving a bus on London Bridge at the end of March. It happened a month after returning to performance after 7 years backstage and to unprecedented success. I was extremely fortunate to come out alive, let alone with my foot. The bus, which was a double decker and weighed between 7-12 tonnes went straight over my right foot. In addition, I am a ballet dancer so this extraordinary event has changed my life. However as I said in the first few days in hospital after the accident, however it has changed my life it has changed it for the better.
I found this book while looking for quotes to help me with positive thinking and it was the quote 'it is vital that we turn each and every dark tear into a pearl of wisdom, and find the blessing in every curse'. Then I dug further and discovered the book.
The accident happened at a time when I couldn't have been stronger, mentally stable and when all my dreams were in my reach. I had said goodbye to my personal demons and started practising mindfulness about 6-8 months prior to the accident.
To say the book has supported me over the last few months is an understatement. I am going to continue in my quest in performance which before the accident was missing something. Now I have a message to deliver and I thank Anthon for nurturing it. I know I am extremely lucky and I aim to be grateful for this gift everyday amongst all the over day to day things I can be grateful for.
I will dance and wear high heals again as many have said but most importantly I believe so and have many visions of me enjoying life this way.
