If you’re reading this book, you are most likely at a point in your life where you want to shift things around a little. I’m guessing you have been a dutiful and responsible member of society. Maybe you’ve raised a child or several children, dedicated much of your life to their well-being and have now seen them off to college, work or other life pursuits. Regardless, you’re left with some space. Oh, space – how you crave it. But when you finally receive it, you’re not quite sure what to do with it.

This space is often felt as an emptiness. You forgot who you were before you had children. Before you took on the responsibilities of marriage or continued your education. Or before you took on the weight of your professional demands. The “you before” is deep in your soul waiting for you to jumpstart change and reawaken your sleeping dreams. You may think you have forgotten the dreams that were in your heart.

But now that you have time, as happens with most dreams, you’re a little fearful of change. Your current life is comfortable. You don’t have to worry about basic needs. You’ve worked hard during your life. So you don’t have to prove yourself professionally or personally anymore. Still, something isn’t quite sitting right. There’s an itch.

Perhaps you’re sitting there wondering: is this it? Is this all life has to offer? Perhaps you have an inkling that there is something better awaiting you. Perhaps your epiphany landed a few days ago. Maybe a year earlier. Possibly even a decade earlier. It’s only now that you have the space around you to think about it, and the itch is really taking hold. So if you have an inkling in your heart that your life can be different and better, what stops you from changing things? When you suddenly find yourself with stability, time and fewer responsibilities, what stops you from seizing and creating the life of your dreams?
