About the Book

Author Alivia Cahill learned that people are not merely reflections of their life experiences; they’re reflections of their perceptions of, and reactions to, those life experiences. Henry David Thoreau said, “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” What’s more, the response to what is seen can change life forever.

This compilation of personal experiences illustrates how Alivia’s unhealthy responses to a harsh environment shaped her life in many ways. Years of stewing quietly and bottling up negative emotions about life’s adversities led to decades of self-abuse and devastating physical dis-ease. Fortunately, experiencing unconditional love and acquiring profound knowledge about the mind-body connection eventually led her on a path to wellness.

Life Happens follows Alivia’s agonizing journey of creating dis-ease and working towards healing, which sparks the motivation to make better choices in the face of hardship. The traumas described and lessons learned encourage a positive view of life’s obstacles to be adopted—to grow from them and allow them to positively shape the body, mind, and spirit—so that wellness may be experienced, instead of simply dreamed about!
