Sandra Cooper has been writing and lamenting her life in journals from the time she was in the eighth grade. Feeling “different” she was unable to connect to or accept the expected and traditional roles that were only beginning to be challenged during her childhood years. Sandra documents the ups and downs that constitute any life. She shares stories of alcohol abuse, the destructive relationships which were an offshoot of her poor self-worth, and the anger that drove her to change the direction of her life.

This book describes the lessons Sandra learned while trying to navigate her life outside the boundaries defined by others. Hurt and angry, Sandra challenges the status quo again and again. Stepping into her fears and facing her isolation, she discovers that living a life of freedom means taking the narrow road into and beyond herself.

Sandra is an introspective soul, able to read between the lines of her life. As she begins to reclaim that life, weeding out what others expected her to be versus who she actually was, she realizes that life was inviting her to heal and to grow. She accepted that invitation, learning the lessons set before her. Doing so allowed her to leave the chaos behind to live the life she wanted.

Sandra’s faith in the unseen led her to discover radical self-love and self-acceptance as the means to peace and contentment.

It is along this road that Sandra discovers her own gifts and abilities. She hangs up her RN hat to become a licensed professional counselor. In this role, she finds the meaning and the usefulness for her experiences; the lessons learned invaluable as she assists others to become their best self.

Sandra writes with honesty, acknowledging her dark side and asking the questions others are afraid to ask. She invites us to consider spirituality and mysticism as part and parcel of who we are. She steps away from religion, embracing her new understanding of spirituality.

Sandra’s understanding of her own life experiences is a template for understanding our own.
