I didn’t set out to write the perfect book. I set out to give people a tool to help them sort through this imperfect mess that we call life. I want people to live their lives and love the lives that they live. No book, no author can change your life. No magic formula or fairy dust will appear to make that happen. Only you can do that. My book is not for everyone, but it may be for you.
Following your divine call will not guarantee happiness, but that call to your IDEAL life is like a song that you can’t get out of your head. Once the call has been heard, there is no satisfaction for those who choose not to answer. My book is a collection of various exercises that are useful in helping people refocus as they walk through this life’s journey.
Understanding the IDEAL framework should help you to experience your IDEAL life.
I AM…the sum total of my choices, my experiences, and my environment.
I DECIDE…the path I will follow and how I will respond to life.
I EVOLVE…to stay relevant in a dynamic and sometimes unpredictable world.
I ADVANCE…by honing my skills and being the best I can be.
I LET GO…of past hurts, failures, and negative experiences in order to move forward.
This holiday season I am sharing 12 short holiday posts to help you and yours get through this season with a little bit of joy and happiness intact. Many find the holiday season warm and inviting, but others get caught up in the hype of the season and even fall into the envy trap of comparing our lives to the lives of others. I would encourage you to create your own traditions and norms this time of the year. Don’t worry if the activities of your family or friends don’t match those of others. Be happy and define what works for you and yours.
