The Road You've Traveled is a valuable how-to which assists people in recording their life. Each chapter contains tips, ideas, and a tank of mental gasoline to help you recall lost memories. Your thoughts will be well organized as you journal your past and allow yourself the opportunity to choose the right roads into your future.
This book was created out of a series of lesson plans which were researched and developed in 2002 for the purpose of teaching senior citizens how to write their life story. In the process of teaching these lessons, the realization came that people of any age can benefit from this process. It's been said by many to be therapeutic; some have been able to come to terms with their past and have learned to welcome their future with enthusiasm.
You don't need a "vehicle" to get you into the future, just a map, a map with other roads that will cross here and there and offer you choices. These are choices you'll be better able to make if you have a general destination in mind. Follow your intuition, listen, and enjoy life because this is not a dress rehearsal, this is the main stage and most importantly enjoy every day, and every moment. No other moment will be just like it. No other person will live your life as you will.
Enjoy the road that you choose to travel!

About the author (2006)

To the Reader:

We have all had hardships throughout life that we try to overcome; my hope is that I’m able to help others to understand life is a journey. Every step, grand experience or not has been important. How we choose to view the past leads us directly into the future. Personally, I have a tremendous excitement for what is yet to come and through writing and speaking have discovered my life purpose.


I have no scholarly credentials although I have been described as having a disgustingly positive attitude. I’ve come to terms with nearly all of the hardships of my life and hope to give others a glimmer of optimism and inspire them to discover their own life purpose.


Enjoy Life,

Jane E Saylor, dPA
