This was the title of the presention I did for the Whole Health Expo this past weekend. I shared my model for dealing with adversity using exerpts from the book.
Real = make the adversitiy real by confronting and naming the stress you are confronting.
Enlightened = understand the situation and seek to improve it
Attitude = the one thing in your life you have control of
Love life = find happiness
Book Summary ** Our lives, after the diagnosis and subsequent treatment, of my husband for a brain tumor, clearly have taken a path less traveled. Yet our journey has and continues to be, a journey of hope, joy and of unyeilding commitment. We invite you into our lives, a view of our childhood, marriage, a marriage seperate from convention, yet strongly bound. Join us as we recall the last twenty-five years, twenty of which have been spent LIVING with a brain tumor. Come, witness our challenges and discover our triumphs as we reinvent our relationship, struggle to redefine marriage roles, communication styles, and reclaim intimacy after illness.
