“What I've learned to do when I sit down to work on a is to quiet the voices in my head.” - Anne Lamott
This book has been a lifetime coming.
These topics were downloaded to me one night in 2018 in the beginning of what would be the greatest transition of my life - from achieving all the earmarks of societal expectations to the winding road back to my true self.
I carved my identity as a good wife, great mom, and even greater grandmother. I was a late in life student who only sought higher education for myself after launching two husbands and three children on pursuits of their own. Family first.
Armed with a Master’s Degree in organizational leadership, I went on to become an accomplished author, respected mentor, international speaker, and successful career woman. I checked all the boxes of self-sufficiency.
And then I turned 60 and had what many would consider a mid-life crisis. Ditch the man, ditch the job, make a major cross-country move to Nowhere, New Hampshire and begin again. As what? That was the big question.
I met myself in the wonder of the woods, the secrets of solitude, and the magic of meditation.
Consider this Volume I of a life well lived.
