Your past does not have to define your future It's a choice. If you're running from a monster, instead of looking over your shoulder, you'll cover more ground faster if you face forward in the direction you're moving. In Face Forward, Move Forward, the monster represents anything from anger, guilt and pain to shame, betrayal and worthlessness.
I learned to run away from the past, but toward what? How can I live a life 180-degrees different from what I've known, what I had beaten into me?
Face Forward, Move Forward is a gut-wrenching and heart-warming story about reframing life to invoke positive outcomes. A Face Forward, Move Forward philosophy provides momentum to cultivate a life of happiness, peace and self-acceptance. Face Forward, Move Forward is also a story of redemption and fulfillment.
The real heartbeat of the story is felt in the longing to live as more than a survivor, to take life on as a "thriver." Too many people are hurt by someone or something and merely survive day-to-day, going through the motions, missing hope, joy, and love. They miss becoming thrivers.
If you relate to the difficulty of overcoming past pain or you feel like your life is stuck in a rut, this stimulating combination of autobiography and personal how-to is for you.
