Over the last several weeks I have been taking time to read my own book, Moments. I started reading parts as a review. I imagined how a reader might experience what I had written. I thought about how they might come to a better understanding of some part of their lives, perhaps finding a thought that became the key to free them from some limitation. After several reading sessions I decided to start at the beginning and read it through. I discovered that “speaking to myself” through the pages strengthened my own resolve to focus on the positive elements of my life.
Much of the book is drawn from articles I have written through the years. They were written as a way for me to work through some of my own challenges, but with a thought that some insight may strike a resonant chord in others as they read. I wanted to share my own journey, dealing with disappointments and frustration, as well as the successes and satisfaction of meeting some challenge. Sometimes all a person needs in order to begin to turn his/her life around is an appropriate word, positive encouragement, and to know that someone else facing similar challenges was able to work through them to a successful conclusion.
I am still learning and still growing. I find in my book reminders to keep working on whatever challenges remain unresolved, and to rejoice in those in which I have found success and satisfaction. I hope you, too, if you read the book, will also find a pathway to your own sense of fulfillment.
