Start With A Title


This is the advice I have been waiting for as a title has been floating around in my head for quite some time.  Now is the time to begin my story, and the title is:

“How To Lose Everything Without Losing Yourself”

It began when I realized that life is not after all, a fairy tale, and there is no knight riding up on a white horse to rescue me, take care of me and provide for me for the rest of my life.  I am not sitting on a throne, commanding subordinates to fetch the items I desire, or wandering among the roses in my lovely garden.  In reality I am rising early to get to work on time and then returning to my simple abode to take care of the household chores and it is this realization that snaps me out of my dreamlike state that began with simple childhood stories and fairy tales.

Through life seemed full of disappointments when this bubble burst, it was really the beginning of a transformation and having recently emerged from the fog of 18 months of sliding down a long hill and from down here at the bottom, there is nowhere else to look but up.

To be continued…….
