“Since I was not allowed achievements as a child, I became an overachiever as an adult. I think my claim to fame, so to speak, was the completion of 36 credit hours in 6 weeks. I believe every day is a gift and treat it as such.
This book was the single largest and most difficult task I have ever undertaken. While it has been wholly therapeutic, it has also forced me to revisit those days so long ago that I had hoped were memories gone forever. In truth, some of the content of the book, I did not remember until my late 30s.
I have always known I would do this but I could not find the motivation until a dear friend, sent me copies of his books. I believe his books were meant to help its readers open their mind to new possibilities and I suppose it worked. (Thank you, Russell!)
If my words can help anyone else find their own words, I have succeeded. I know now that from trauma, comes bravery; and that should be my focus moving forward.”
