Jana writes just as she speaks: with honesty, conviction and humour, making her path to self-acceptance relatable for all of us. It took oodles of self-reflection before I came to realise my quirks developed into my resilience, my emotion gave me my empathy and my drama fuelled my passion. Too often I tried to fit in when I was born to stand out. Throughout this book, Jana shares her life with you: the good, the bad and the ugly. Her stories of sport, medicine, divorce, loss, solo parenting, and media shenanigans are told without embellishment or excuses. On her own admission, she's often learned the hard way, rumbling with my demons, fighting against self-acceptance, and boxing with negative inner chatter. I've often been too honest, shared too much and talked too fast. But over the years, she's made peace with those demons: owning her flaws and choosing how to use her failures to become a stronger person, to the point where she now considers that the greatest success in life is believing in yourself. Jana's life lessons are inspirational, not because of her achievements - stellar though they are - but because of her willingness to share with readers how to stare down your own doubts and fears and believe in yourself and your dreams. This book is for anyone who has ever felt that they are not enough.
