365 Life Shifts: Pivotal Moments That Changed Everything
Over 250 authors came together to create this #1 international bestseller. Each true story in the book showcases a different kind of life shift. I contributed three stories to the book, one of which inspired me to write a memoir.
Scroll down to hear the stories I contributed. Can you guess which one inspired me to keep writing?
Do you have yoyu?
Living in a different culture is not always easy. Living with a spouse is not always easy. And, living with your spouse's elderly father is not always easy, especially if he is navigating Alzheimer's.
No matter where we choose to walk in our "Earthsuits," living is not always easy. But, learning how to have "yoyu" was what helped me survive after my father-in-law came to live with us.
The Missing Ingredient
Getting an old man to do what he doesn't want to do is tough. Getting an old man who has Alzheimer's to do it, is even tougher. In this story, I share how I was able to get my father-in-law to drink enough fluids during the hot summer.
Spend Time Every Day Tending Your Web
If you are afraid of spiders, then you probably won't like this story. Before my father-in-law came to live with us, I lived with him for a few weeks in the mountains of Hiroshima. During my stay, I got to know a very special spider.
How can I get the book?
If you enjoyed my three stories, I encourage you to get the book. It's full of a-ha moments, signs from the universe, and self-discoveries from other authors around the world. 365 Life Shifts and the other 4 books in the 365 Book Series are available on Amazon.
The creators of the 365 Series, Jodi Chapman, and Dan Teck donate 5% of all profits from sales of their books to the Jane Goodall Institute.
