We all begin life as members of the crowd and have our shoulds and shouldn'ts ingrained as we grow. Like chicks in a barnyard, kids in a schoolyard are taught to conform and compete in order to fit in with society. By the time we reach adulthood, the idea of individual choices is a remote fantasy. The good news is that, when we reach maturity, we can choose how we react to our programming, so that we can provide for ourselves lives of boredom and routine, or lives of freedom and unlimited possibilities. Our upbringing may have taught us how to fit in, but tapping into our own spiritual nature can teach us how to stand out. When I finally discovered that I had a choice and decided to take back control of my life, as I relate in this book, I found a world of freedom and enjoyment that I want to share with my readers - most likely anyone from 18 to 80. Creative parents can also share their experience with their children to provide a head start. As I follow my evolution from barnyard chick to soaring eagle, the simplicity of the process invites the reader to give it a try - break free and fly. All it takes is simplicity, honesty, integrity and a leap of faith - faith in ourselves.
