Call in to speak with the host
Like many, as a child I was gifted with numerous insights and understandings, yet I spent decades ignoring my inner wisdom and truth, only to stumble and fall over and over again, as much the result of inner turmoil as external mayhem. I have been challenged spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and physically; when I clearly could handle no more, the havoc and opportunity only grew larger. Sometimes I allowed myself to become engulfed by extreme pain and suffering, but only in direct proportion to my own ignorance and disregard for my truth and path in life.In the end, my life has been exhilarating and spectacular in many ways, with every experience granting me the opportunity to grow, to learn, and to evolve. I have survived cancer on two separate occasions, lived with chronic headaches every single day of my life since I was five-years- old, and experienced extreme physical pain so unbearable that I became physically sick and temporarily paralyzed. As traumatic as the physical pain was, it paled in comparison to the mental, emotional and spiritual growth I was afforded through this and countless other opportunities.Through hardship came strength, and as a result of pain I found joy. Through suffering came gratitude, and by letting go I found my path and purpose in life.Don’t expect that someone else will step in to fulfill the purpose you neglect, the path you disregard.Don’t sacrifice your truth or your values, for we each have our special place within this world, and it is our prerogative to find that purpose and fulfill it.The loss of a life is not nearly as devastating as the loss of what could have been, of the dreams left unfulfilled.This is a book about life for those who choose to grow.
