About the Book

This “Little Book” is about being present to the wonders that exist around us “At Ground Level,” discovering all that we fail to see when we spend so much of our lives chasing bigger, better, faster, more, endeavoring to fly higher.

Everything else seems much more desirable around us than ourselves, or our life and loves, after a long day at the slug farm.

When do we decide how to proceed with the life we have built thus far: Joy, Passion, Marriage, Divorce, Suicide, Enlightenment? Choices we have made. What if you built from a place of strength rather than always feeling diminished and unfulfilled? A life built upon the life you have, rather than the elusive life you imagine, yet fear. Build a great life in balance with your best self and your nurtured relationships. Transformation is seeing the hidden gems that truly exist in plain sight.

We have all heard someone say, “The grass is greener on the other side.” Is it?

Most of us were 4 or 5 years old when the belief structure we made with life set in: I am stupid, I am weak, I don’t deserve, etc. We engaged believing that we should spend our lives proving that we are who we believe everyone else thinks we are. Breaking the cycle of doubt is essential. Loving “self ” is the first love.

“The grass is greenest where you are!”
