Descrição do produto
It's been said that life is the cruelest teacher because she gives you the exam first, and then the information to pass it. Ever think to yourself, "why doesn't life come with a manual?" Or "why didn't mom or dad tell me about this?" Well now they did!
Inspired by numerous personal life experiences and constant contact with different cultures, different social classes, and a variety of emotional and spiritual evolutionary stages, For My Children brings together values, direction, integrity, love and the burning desire to live ones life to the fullest, in an elegant fashion that captivates each reader.
It's initial intent was to leave some written instructions for my own two children in case we lose contact or, for some unfortunate reason, I'm not here to accompany them through life. Since we all are children of our own perspective parents, it quickly became clear that this book would be openly accepted by all.
We all have so much in common and most of us can quickly relate to experiences past and present of others. For many people, life experiences get tucked away without proper recognition or thorough understanding of just what it was that happened and how these experiences affect our development, our relationships, and overall health and happiness.
I personally struggled for too many years before realizing that all of life's "hardships” and my repeated frustration was just life insisting that I dig a little deeper and change the way that I perceive my past. I was frustrated most of my early life and like many people, I wanted so badly for any third party to step in and make it all ok. Fortunately that didn't happen and I was thrilled when I realized my own potential and the internal peace of getting myself back on track and truly discovering the exhilaration that comes by living, truly living your life.
I trust that the reflections in each chapter help each reader identify with his or her own life and ultimately desire that each reader leave this book with more self understanding, more internal peace and more direction in life. I do believe that as a result of this personal growth, we can all reap the rewards of better relationships with those around us.
Obviously I would most like to see this between my own children and myself. I am truly grateful for this opportunity as a father and the discoveries that come along with it. I don't believe any more that we raise our children. We are pupils in their classroom and, if you allow it, the educational process is extremely rewarding.
Finally, I leave with you this thought - Live your life, and realize your dreams the way that you need to live them, and if one day you feel so inclined, leave for your children a few written words to fill in any gaps that may have been left out.
