She added a quote by Australian artist and writer, Tess Guinery: ‘Sometimes we get given the opportunity to make a brave choice. A choice, to surrender the things that have been great, in exchange for greater.
‘It’s here a soulful, lively, heart out of chest, tears on cheeks, I’m alive kind of passion lives – it lives just around the corner, from surrender’s bend.’

‘After giving it our all though, late last year we made the tough mutual decision to move on separately,’ Fanning posted on Facebook at the time.
‘It feels weird to put our personal life out there like this but we want to eliminate any speculation about this decision. We’re still close and there’s a lot of love there.’
The marriage split followed a tough six months for the three-time world champion, in which he fought off a shark while competing in South Africa, followed shortly afterwards by the sudden death of his brother Peter in late 2015.
