My intent for writing this book is to take you on a journey that touches a place in you - your heart. If you believe, like I do, that truth is the way forward ... this book is for you. If you do not believe truth is the way forward ... this book is for you. I believe the world can change and heal when the truth is told from the heart.

It is a personal challenge that will be both delightful and disappointing at times. This is what your living is all about.
This book speaks to how you can re-script your story by looking inside yourself through self-reflection and curiosity, and by outside yourself with questions that inspire empathy, compassion, and yes, courageous truth. There is a daily Truth mirror practice guide to encourage you to ask, and answer questions. At the end of each story there is the invitation to reflect and write in your journal to tell your story your way.
