Life sometimes puts us in positions we would rather avoid. Emotional or physical pain, confusion, loneliness, being misunderstood, or being taken for granted. These are just a few life-defining experiences that may cross our path.

Just as the disconcerting experience of turbulence on a flight could possibly lead to a conscious or unconscious fear of flying, so are we prone to react to diverse external forces at play around us. These impactful events can leave an indelible imprint on our lives, causing unhealthy filters to be established as far as how we see and value ourselves, and others.

In my book I share experiential anecdotes which challenge some of the established thinking around our perceptions of life’s inherent highs and lows. My hope is that you will gain a better appreciation of what it means to live a life of purpose; one which not only allows you to see beyond the immediate threat levels of distress or discomfort, but also how to count the blessings we sometimes miss, or take for granted.
