Half a Heartbeat Away
As human beings we have all had not only our own unique experiences but also ones that are universal and can be shared with so many others. This book deals not only with the seemingly mundane but also with issues or experiences not shared by all. It is important that people be given a voice to validate the things they find difficult to express or share with others. Most importantly people need to be inspired and to have their spirit, hope, sense of peace and self-identity re-ignited. It is important to learn from the past but we must also be willing to learn from others and engage in a future that encompasses empathy, hope, peace, laughter, and overcoming the trials in our lives.
Some of the common themes in this book are: Choosing to go through trials in our lives and come out stronger. Choosing to receive and reciprocate true love and friendship in our lives. Choosing not to allow others to steal away the best of who we are. Dealing with being different, such as those who have premonitions or special gifts that define who they are. Taking responsibility for actions and teaching children to do the same with respect, dignity, honesty and humility. It deals with loss and grief, life lessons and the quest to overcome the worst, such as not allowing others to dump their toxic baggage at our feet. Most importantly, acknowledging that we all need silence and solitude in our lives to restore our spirit and listen for the guidance we need to take the next steps in our lives in confidence and with a sense of peace that we are on the right track. It is about life and the choices we make that effect not only ourselves but also those around us.
