Finding Ourselves Unexpected Discoveries
In reading internet news or watching it on television, in seems all we hear is bad news. It gives a distorted view of the world as it seems rather sensational to pick the worst possible kinds of things happening and choosing from the entire world to make it look close to us. In reality we know from personal experience that there is much more good news in our lives than bad from birth to our current age. It is what keeps us going with hope for the present and future through our families, grand children, work places, schools, etc. For that reason I have written a self-help book for the average person of this world to show how normal day to day happenings in our very average lives have much good in them and even further discoveries upon examination that further give reason to have hope for now and the future. I write about events in my life, as best recalled, that in most cases are close to events in your life. I hope the way I write it will enrich your life and help you to foster more of what you have. I write about family and special events, best friends, music's influence in our lives, the impact of dogs, value of volunteering. Some things harder to write about are included: facing the death of a friend, facing challenges of serious illness in a family, how to get along with people in a divided political world, and learning to appreciate the value of contractors. More important than the above topics is the discoveries made along the way about values acquired from these experiences, the value of unlearning what we have been taught since youth, and recognizing how much we take for granted. By reading between the lines and seeing your story, you will be enriched and become more aware.
