Dear visitors, Two years ago, I decided to create my own magazine. What started as an idea, quickly became a reality and a huge part of my life. Creating Zest For Life has given me the strength, the determination and the positivity to be my true self and to never stop believing in the possibility of my dreams. I created this publication to give me a focus, a purpose, to spread positivity to others and to help me keep my head above water during a difficult time in my life. I couldn't get a job at a publication like I wanted, so I started my own. This magazine bridged the gap between who I thought I was and who I now aspire to be. I can proudly say that despite the personal struggles I have faced in the past few years, I managed to create my own positive lifestyle magazine at the age of twenty-two. I did that. I created something from nothing. I gave hope to other people and more importantly, I gave hope to myself. I now have the confidence and the ambition to start a new career as a teacher. Although I love creating this magazine and it has a special place in my heart, I have to let it go. It wouldn’t be fair to continue with it when I no longer have the time and energy to give it the attention it truly deserves. I have poured my remaining passion and creativity into this final issue and I hope you all enjoy reading it. This website will remain live but will no longer be updated. Head over to zestforlifemag.com/magazine to download all issues of Zest For Life and at the end of October 2017 you will be able to download the very last issue for free. All good things must come to an end and after two years and eight issues, I am more than happy with the progression that this publication has made and I am proud of what I have achieved. I want to thank you all for supporting me and my dream. I want to thank the writers for taking time out of their busy lives to write for the magazine. I want to thank the readers and the followers for your kind words, your support and your commitment to Zest For Life. I will leave you with these final words – be grateful, be strong, be ambitious, be happy and most importantly... have a zest for life! Editor of Zest For Life Emma-Jane Barlow.
