Sooo………..this could turn out to be a complete disaster! I’m about to embark upon a journey. It’s gonna be tough. I’m under no illusions. How does a guy like me with:
- no close friends
- no career
- no girlfriend for a looooooooooong time
- several years of stagnating with anxiety behind him
- no money
become wealthy, happy, successful and 100% healthy?
Is it possible to create a sexy (that’s right, I said SEXY!), dream life at my age, after so much time in the wilderness?
In just one year?
As I type this now, it seems foolish that I would even consider this, never mind decide to tell the whole world about it!
I’m very nervous.
This is the first time I’ve been really open and honest about my decades long struggle with mental health issues. I’ve never really had anyone to confide in before, so I’ve never been able to talk in depth about it.
It would be nice if you could lend a friendly ear.
THIS IS NOT A BLOG ABOUT ANXIETY!
Firstly, because I don’t have anxiety any more! Secondly, because I want this to be an optimistic, positive and hopefully inspirational blog about what your life can be if you take ACTION and never let adversity stop you in your tracks.
I will of course, still write about anxiety because I know some of you will be living with it and it was such a major part of my life.
But if you want to know the in-depth story of my life with anxiety, please check out my free PDF which you can read by clicking this image which will take you to the “How I Crushed Anxiety” page:
It’s a look at life with social anxiety and what you can do to overcome it. I hope as many of you as possible will read and share it because I believe it can help others.
No-one has to live with anxiety forever.
There’s always a way out.
I firmly believe that and am living proof of it.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM ME!
This blog is about my life after anxiety, namely the “awakening” I went through in 2016 and the action I’m taking in 2017 to create that dream life.
But more than anything, I am simply documenting my journey, so that one day in future, people will look back on it and be able to see exactly what I did to drag myself up from the brink, to create something special.
Maybe I can give a few people hope and inspiration.
And I believe it’s possible to create your dream life in as little as ONE YEAR. My aim is to put into practice all I’ve learned during my awakening and at this time in 2018, I hope that you and I can look back and say;
“Wow! Just look at how far this dude has come!”
Here’s a few things you can expect:
daily weekly regularwhenever I get the time blog post
- Updates on what I’m doing to turn my life around from pretty much nothing at the moment, into a dream life
- Posts on what it’s like to go through an “awakening”
- Reviews on self-development (and related) books, YouTube channels, courses and websites
- Interviews with a few special guests
- Random musings on anxiety and how I’ve turned my life around from this complete shit of a disorder!
You’ll notice that I’ve put quotation marks around the word “awakening”. I don’t like using that term! It’s almost always preceded by the word “spiritual” and that makes it sound even weirder!
Have I gone through the cliched “spiritual awakening”?
Yeah, I guess so.
But I don’t want to call it that because it conjures up images of religious nuts, people dressed in white smocks sat in the lotus position, vegans with lumberjack beards and Ouija boards! I’ll discuss this more in my next post.
For now though, let’s just say that I have spent a whole year learning about some of the most important questions in life; yet ones which very few of us even begin to answer till we are too old for it to make a difference:
- Who are we?
- Where are we from?
- What are we here to do?
- What is our reality?
- Who am I?
- What is my life purpose?
- How can I be truly happy?
- Why do men have nipples?
- What the fuck was “Lost” really all about?
- What’s going on with Donald Trump’s hair?
The answers I’ve gained have fundamentally changed me in so many ways. I now know exactly who I am, what I want and (sort of!) how to get it. I’m a man with a plan! I’ll reveal that plan soon……..

Brilliant blog Tim !!! So open and honest and I think this is a great read for all sufferers and brings so much awareness and tips 🙂 !!
Keep the posts coming 🙂
Congratulations Zoe! You are the new owner of a brand new Range Rover for becoming the first person to comment on my blog! Did I not mention that earlier? The prize? Ah well…..So nice to hear from you and I really appreciate the kind words. A blogger never forgets his first comment you know 😉
Great concept Tim! Anxiety can be used to your advantage and as I found out myself… it is not your personality, it does not define you as a person and it does not control you or your life choices. That might be your past but your future is already looking sexier with that outlook
best of luck 🙂
Hi Becky! Thanks so much for the kind words. I think it’s so important that people like yourself come out and say that they have overcome anxiety. From what I see online, too many sufferers think it can’t be beaten and the problem with that attitude is, it never will be beaten if you think that way. Glad to see you’ve overcome it too 🙂
Timothy! It’s so lovely to meet you. Your blog is full of great energy, and I send you much support on your path of awakening, and blessings to your dreams. 😊😊 Have a wonderful day, joy to you Timothy- Debbie
Hi Debbie, thanks so much for your kind words, you’ve made my day 🙂 Can never get enough support on this path, can be pretty scary at times!
