Is this really how I want to live my life? I have asked myself this question almost every day. The reality is not that life is short but that we often see only the gunk that is in our lenses than actually seeing what really matters. In Life Lessons by, Kubler-Ross and Kessler (2000) write to guide us through the practical and spiritual lessons we need to learn throughout our lifetime so that we can live life to the fullest. Some of these lessons are extremely difficult to master, however the attempts to understand them can be deeply fulfilling. Here, in just fourteen chapters, from the Lessons of Love to the Lessons of Guilt, Kübler-Ross and Kessler (2000) reveal the truth about our fears, our dreams, our relationships, and most importantly about the dignity of who we really are. My whole life portrait has been to become a wonderful mother to my children. Kübler-Ross and Kessler (2000) have taught me to overcome fear and opened my eyes to the choices I have when it comes to relationships in order to fulfill this portrait. My first major idea is to not let the fear of striking out keep me from living. (Kübler-Ross & Kessler, 2000). I do not let myself experience all the amazing opportunities that this world provides (Kübler-Ross & Kessler, 2000). I live with this sense of terror every minute of every day. Fear can destroy a lifetime. It will consume everything we believe in, if we let it. Being able to live a life with no regrets means not letting anything or anyone get in my way. My whole journey in life will be better if I face my fears and pursue my dreams and desires with no sense of terror. If we allow ourselves to truly live and not hide behind the shadows, our whole life experience would be an extraordinary one (Kübler-Ross... ... middle of paper ... ...of life (Kübler-Ross & Kessler, 2000). In my eyes, I only get one shot at this. One shot at life. One shot with my children. I believe this is why I had so much fear to begin with. I was terrified of messing up and not being able to give my children the life I want to give them. In ways, I was never ready. Until, I read the Life Lesson’s book by, Kübler-Ross and Kessler (2000). This book inspired me to start changing the way I look at the world. It gave me a whole different perspective on many different concepts of living. Being able to learn so much about the process of life through 224 pages gave me hope. I am now filled with confidence that I can become a good mother to my children. It will be a life -long process of trial and error. Of course, Life Lessons is no doubt a process. Fortunately, it is a process that will certainly get me on the right path of life.
