In 2007, on the day of her 15th wedding anniversary, Sharon realized that everything she had ever worked for was hers. Marriage; money; happy healthy children; a multimillion dollar business; international travel; a big white house on the hill and three European cars in the driveway.
Yet, she was desperately and inexplicably unhappy.
Shortly after this day, a life-threatening event meant she had no choice but to face her demons and begin the journey of self-discovery that would change her life forever.
Sharon, like so many women of her generation and the generations around her, found the struggle for self fulfillment was lost early in her adulthood as she built a life based on what our society had told her would make her happy.
While following Sharon’s story we share her experiences from the hospital emergency room on the brink of death, through recovery rooms and marriage crisis right into the success of an award winning cupcake business, the courage of flying a plane solo and the ability to find joy in the lessons learnt within the walls of Australia’s newest women’s prison.
Sharon’s honesty is enlightening as she openly exposes her inadequacies as a mother, and her fears for herself and her children as her life spirals out of control. She speaks frankly of her inability to balance what society thinks she should be, and finding the importance of her own truth and value.
Follow Sharon’s journey through this amazing story, as she chances losing everything that she thinks is important to her, in a search for the one thing she had lost; her hope.
A Charmed Life offers what Sharon believes to be the 20 most important lessons she has learnt on her journey, each lesson offered up as a charm of wisdom on the charm bracelet of her life. Sharon has cleverly linked each of her stories with the lesson she learnt and shares with the reader the charm for her bracelet that she has purchased to remind her of the lesson learnt and remembered.
This book is an excellent vehicle for readers who are new to the concepts of self-development as it allows the reader to enlighten themselves to new ideas that can lead them through the passage to emotional discovery of their own.

This story uniquely connects Sharon’s personal stories to each of the lessons she learnt during her journey. With Sharon’s recommendations of further reading on every charm of wisdom, the readers are then offered the opportunity to use this book as the keystone beginning to their own journey towards happiness, fulfillment and serenity.
