We cannot avoid change it is an integral part of life. But while we may able to point to major events as "life changing," sometimes it is the less noticeable, inconspicuous times which can cause a major shift in our perceptions of what life is and who we are. A chance conversation with a stranger, an unexpected gift, even experiences that don't turn out quite the way we wanted, can all provide food for thought and lead to new realisations. The Gifts Of Change explores the commonplace activities that are part and parcel of everyday life - an unwelcome gift, an unwelcome rejection or an unexpected schedule disruption. Readers are invited to look beyond the surface of occurrence for hidden meanings and subtle truths. The result is a shift in their perceptions about themselves and the life they are living and the choices they have.
