This book contains practical and usable ideas for anyone experiencing painful emotions, hopeless thoughts, or blocked choices. Do you, your family, or your friends have a sense of being “down in the dumps?” Do you ever use phrases even more graphic or even unspeakable to describe your current situation? If so, you will find help and encouragement in this book by using the techniques and suggestions contained on these pages.
Similarly, if you have an occasional bout with a mild sense of discouragement or pessimism or if you feel down in the mouth at times you will be able to pick yourself up by implementing even one idea. Additionally, this book will be a success if it triggers in your mind a better choice or a more appropriate pathway that you can claim as yours. If this happens to just one person, I would know that my time and effort is more than worthwhile.
Finally, I would like to hear your story. Feel free to contact me and let me know how you have carried out any idea that has helped you in your life journey. A friend of mine once said, “We are all on a journey to somewhere.” Feel free to tell me about the steps you have taken and what that “somewhere” looks like.
The best to you as you take one step at a time and live one day at a time.
