I began writing this book in 2005 after moving into my house, the house I dreamed of having, and I thought everything was finally going to be perfect. The year 2005 was the beginning of more change than I could have ever imagined. My son was deployed to Iraq, my daughter was dealing with personal issues, and I was having unexpected challenges on my job. My normal reaction would have been to run away, uproot and move, and start over. I was a runner. I didnt stay around very long to work through situations, and it was easier to run in another direction and just start over, but something had changed. I didnt want to move anymore. I was tired of leaving what I had worked for and established, but I struggled to make the change. The one constant was completing my book.I came from a loving, respected family. I was educated and intelligent enough. I have been married. I have traveled. I have great kids, a supportive family, had good jobs, etc.a lot to be thankful forbut something was still missing. By all accounts, my life should have gone along a predictable path, but it didnt. I didnt know how to make the necessary changes to have consistent inner peace and joy. Do you ever find yourself in a place where it would appear you had it all togetheryou are accomplished professionally, personally, and financially, and you have the perfect house, car, etc.but something is still missing? I hope my book will be encouraging and can offer answers and solutions. Its really very simple.
