Earlier this month, I interviewed Leigh Matson about her project The Reality of Gaming. As a parent myself, I naturally was curious about how her parents felt about Leigh's addiction to gaming. I contacted her mother who agreed to be interviewed. Before I got around to asking Julie how it was as the mother of a gamer, I found myself interested in Julie's life in London and, of course, how she had re-connected to the teachings of the Ageless Wisdom as presented in this era by Serge Benhayon. Julie had her own remarkable story about her health at the time of finding the Ageless Wisdom. I really enjoyed Julie's very unassuming way of telling her story.
We did eventually get around to discussing how it was as the parent of a gamer, the subtle early signs that all was not well and how she feels today about Leigh's work in educating the public through her YouTube videos about gaming.
You can listen to the interview with her daughter, Leigh Matson, here.
Leigh Matson loved gaming. It was a way of life - for approximately 14 years, playing video games is what she planned her day around. Miraculously she was able to see what had happened and made the decision to change. She freed herself from the need for gaming and now, four years later, she is sharing her experience with the world.
What I love about Leigh is that there is no rah-rah about I did that and now I'm doing this. She is just a young woman sharing her experience. Make of it what you will, she seems unattached to your response yet dedicated to her project which is called 'The Reality of Gaming.'
You can listen and watch her talk about gaming on her YouTube channel The Reality of Gaming and read her blogs at The Reality of Gaming.

Gayle is innately curious about people; how they see the world, how they position themselves in the world and why they do what they do. She loves interviewing people for these same reasons.
