Fighting the Fire

Question


Hi Scott,

Earlier this week I lost my rental house and most possessions in the Bunyip State Park fires. I just wanted to say that reading your book earlier this year has helped me deal with what I’m going through. I have a much more positive attitude having read your own fire story. This book helped on a different level than finances. Thank you!

Hey Lucy,

My heart goes out to you.

For us it felt that part of our identity was lost in the fires … photos, family heirlooms, all our possessions.

What helped us was framing the experience as part of our story: we got knocked down, but that we got up again.

That’s what life is about … rising from the ashes and saying “I got this”.

You Got This.

Scott
