I found each pathway to build upon the insights from the last, with my heart and mind becoming increasingly open to new possibilities for how I engage with myself and my journey. Instead of holding fast to my developed concept of "do more, be better", I asked myself what I cherish about simply "being me", how I show up in relationship with others and the world, and how I can take advantage of the opportunities before me. Never have I felt so inspired to connect with my own stories and history, find my authentic voice, and celebrate all the experiences, even the difficult ones, which have helped shape the person I am still becoming. Resiliency and flourishing are highlighted through the stepping stones and applied Spirited Practices at the end of each pathway, weaving inspirational stories and words of wisdom into action items that can be easily incorporated into daily life; I have found these practices to be accessible and effective tools for fully exploring and living into each pathway.
This book inspires hope, optimism and compassion through a positive vision of what is possible. Taylor has authored an insightful and tenderhearted handbook on being fully alive while graciously leaning into the abundant life that is waiting for each of us.
