This book introduces the reader to a journey of self-exploration. The author gives a personal account of her own journey and in dong so, shows the reader the important lessons she has learned along the way. The author's philosophy of life is the foundation for the book and the reader, as he, progresses through the pages, comes to an understanding of how the author came to her philosophy. The purpose of the book is to stimulate each reader to think about their own life in greater depth. The author does not wish to impose her philosophy on any reader but rather to have each reader develop their own philosophy of life. This book will invite the reader to ask questions such as, "Who am I?" and "What is the purpose of my life?" Once asked, the book will serve as a road map for the reader's own voyage of self discovery. First and foremost, the author wishes each and every reader a Bon' Voyage! The author writes: "I find myself an ordinary person living in extraordinary times. I feel that I am fortunate to have experienced leaving one century and moving into the next. Much has been said and written about the turning of the century and I have spent some time examining what all this means to me at 50 plus years of age. The prospect of living in the new century stirred an awakening within me; an unsettled feeling, one of unrest and anticipation, mixed with some fear. It encouraged me to pause and to think about the meaning of life and especially the meaning of my life. There is so much that I want to share with all of you. It is my hope that with this sharing, you with be stimulated to begin your own special journey at a much younger age than I did. What I have learned in my 50 plus years is: that fifty is not really "nifty," that life is full of surprises, and that we never stop learning. The purpose of this document is to try to communicate some of what I have learned and to encourage anyone who may chance to read it. This book will be a sharing of my philosophy of life and is meant simply to guide and help others. I began this endeavor as a result of some major changes in my life and if I have any regrets today, it is that it took so long for me to begin my voyage. Now that I have embarked, I hope that my voyage will continue for the rest of my days." Life is a journey and each journey has a beginning a middle and an end. Whether you are at the beginning, in the middle or nearing the end of your journey, it is important that you recognize where you are. Once you know where you are, you can reflect on where you've been or where you have come from and this knowledge will help you to see where you are headed. We will all end up at the same final destination. I prefer to think about it in terms of completing a cycle. When I finish my journey I will be returning to the point at which I began my journey. Remember. Life is about living each day to the fullest. Life is about loving every creature and being that you come in contact with on your journey. Life is about learning all that you can possibly soak up as you travel on your journey. Life is about leaving a legacy. How do you want to be remembered? Now begin your own fantastic voyage! Bon Voyage!!!!
