You are the author of your own life story.
Your life is like a book, filled with many chapters. THIS chapter is the one that counts the most because THIS chapter is the one you have the most power to make your best.
Past chapters are a record of success, failure, growth, and accomplishment. Some past chapters have been exciting, some dull, and some painful. They tell your story. Of all your chapters THIS one, where you are right now, and who you are right now, is the one you can create and use to make the most of yourself. You can be transformed by what you can learn, not by what you think you know.
Now you are in the best position to apply steadfast courage and fortitude to overcome any challenge. You can use your accumulated knowledge and experience and create the life and the future you desire. You can do something in THIS chapter your future self will thank you for. You can create a future that’s better than your past.
For Beverly Boyd Long: Known as Aunt Bevie, she is my inspiration for writing this book. She often said, “This too will pass. It is only one chapter of your story.” She was always there with love and deep awareness, which were a comfort to her family whenever they experienced life’s ups and downs.
