Product description

This story began about twelve years ago with the loss of my husband. He was such a wonderful man, very simple and direct in his beliefs, and his strong character had a profound and lasting effect on many people. He died of cancer. Before he died he achieved many things, including breaking a world record and becoming a popular inspirational speaker. This is not his story, although he was the catalyst. After he passed away I began a series of trips around the world. During the ten years that I traveled, I had many amazing adventures and some not so happy ones! I have often felt that my life has been rich, rewarding and full of many ups and downs. My husband was an inspiration to many people because of his belief in the goodness of mankind. I felt I wanted to write a book that paralleled that simple philosophy. The first chapter is entitled Loss. It is about dealing with the loss of someone you love. The book then goes on to talk about what comes after that, and for me it was discovering a strength inside myself that I didn't know I had. I began to understand that this world is an amazing place and you really can shape it the way you want it. I have always been a deep thinker and have often tried to find an easy and happy way to negotiate the twists and turns through this life. To attempt to do that can sometimes be overwhelming. Some of the options that we are given are just so complicated. There are many books on the subject and I feel that some of them are just wonderful, but so very complicated and hard to put into practice. There are all sorts of religions, meditations, philosophies and doctrines as well. I have learnt that there IS a simple way to a good and happy life. My story proves that there is. And it will prove to other people that life IS meant to be amazing and it is not difficult at all to create your world the way you want it. I did it and I am no one special. So other people can as well.
