“If Jim’s story does not inspire and motivate you…”

Welcome to your new journey. This book has many stories of trumph and success. It follows my life story, along with many others, to show how we all changed our lives through craziness, diversity, loss, grief, break-ups, heartache, devastation, health issues, eating disorders, abuse, addictions, and the list goes on. Living in the now is what works for me. If you are not happy with your life as it is now, perhaps modifying just one viewpoint or outlook can help you discover and live your life’s purpose. Isn’t it worth at least giving it a shot to reap the rewards the same way we did. We all have a past, but we need to focus on the present. My hope is that you recognize a piece of yourself in one of us and realize that if we can change our lives for the better; you can too! ANYONE CAN!

(from chapter “Never Ever Give Up”)

“If Jim’s story does not inspire and motivate you to realize if he can do it you can too, I don’t know what will. I think we can all learn from his courage, and steadfast confidence that he can do whatever he sets his mind to do. He certainly proved that.”
