About The Book
This book was inspired by my life experiences and those of countless women of all ages, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds. We all are susceptible to various forms of cancer. We all desire opportunities to grow personally and professionally. And, we all need a loving circle of support.
This book, then, seeks to engage readers in a conversation about such pertinent topics as: marriage;being a mother; divorce; finding new love; discovering one’s life purpose; entrepreneurship; and, because I am a breast cancer survivor, increasing awareness of the importance of getting a yearly mammogram. This is essential because early detection is one of the key factors in surviving breast cancer.The additional inspiration for writing this book was turning 60. For months leading up to my 60th birthday,I could feel an internal psychological and emotional shift taking place. Although I now am 62, over the last few years, I could feel myself coming to peace with the full realization and acceptance, that without my various life experiences, I would not be the person I am today. By no means am I suggesting that I am perfect. Rather, it is celebrating the fact that I no longer feel the self-imposed pressure to try to be perfect. I now am at a place in my life where I truly am at peace with myself, at peace with all of who I am. And, I am fully aware that this is a blessing, a gift in and of itself.
