Life continues to be a rollercoaster ride for me and my family. We make plans but change happens, and for life to go on, we must know how to cope and deal with it. A long time ago someone told me that change isn't bad...it just means that we grow up. I did not understand then what exactly he meant by that, but as I grew older...and wiser, I finally did. That somehow there is always been something good that comes out of change and important life lessons learned. I will have another birthday tomorrow and with it, I celebrate the changes in my life.

I still get exasperated and frustrated everyday of my life...I still have the propensity to try to solve every problem that comes to

At that time, I thought it was a cute little story but did not really impress me. Last month I bought a copy and this time gave it a good read and suddenly, what I was reading was making a lot of sense. I guess that what was written in the book was something I needed to hear at this point in my life when I feel that I am at a dead-end, and therefore I need to get moving or else! Not everyone who reads this book the first time will appreciate the message...like me, for example...unless it relates to one's life experience. I finally understood the wisdom of it's message because for the past few years my life's direction has not been going anywhere. I feel like I have been going around in circles day in and day out.
