Hey there, welcome to the Uncomfortable is OK podcast. I’m your host Chris Desmond. I hope everyone had a great celebration of Christmas. This is the podcast all about getting out of your comfort zone. Sometimes we do that through people telling us how they’ve got out of their comfort zone, sometimes its through having conversations about uncomfortable topics. Today has some of both for us. I had the honour of being able to have a conversation with Simonne Butler. Simonne’s name may be familiar to some of you listening. She is the survivor of a brutal samurai sword attack 16 years ago. There is so much more to Simonne than just the attack. She has recently released her book, Double-edged Sword.
Double-edged Sword is her story, and so much more than just a story of survival. It is a guidebook for humanity - how to shrug off the oppressors and the obstacles and live your life with the greatest intensity you can muster. It's about conquering the demons and rising like a phoenix from the ashes and learning how to live with passion, honesty and love.
This podcast contains coarse language and some heavy conversation so it might be a tough listen for you.
Thanks for sharing 2016 with me.
