What are you talking about? How Come? Why?
I am a certified public accountant for God’s sake! My employers’ have included Price Waterhouse in San Francisco, before there was a Coopers, and Ernst & Young in Washington D.C. – two of the biggest most respected accounting firms in the United States. Most recently I worked for a hedge fund, not too far from Wall Street. If you met me in person and observed my life, you would say that I’ve totally made it and living happy. I live in a gorgeous house on a lake, I have three luxury cars, and my children are well behaved and get good grades. Who could ask for more? Yet, before I started on this road, I felt empty inside. I wondered, “Is this it? Is this all there is? Really?”
Lisa Jones - Art of Living Happy
I have had many experiences in my life. Some of them were amazing, like the birth of my two children. Some of them were absolutely terrible, like the death of my husband when I was 37 leaving me alone with 2 children, ages 8 and 10. The interesting part – and this is why I’ve asked you to join me – is that with each event in my life, positive or negative, there have been extraordinary circumstances surrounding the situation that have blown my mind wide open! Unusual and astonishing outcomes, which are extremely good, have occurred and left me blissfully happy. I can’t explain what has caused these amazing results. Is it a coincidence, God, Angels, spirits, or just random events? Am I just super lucky?
I don’t really think I am just lucky, although that would be the easiest way to explain it. It doesn’t feel like that. It feels bigger.
Truly, being on the road less traveled has enhanced my life beyond belief. I’m happier, healthier, and more content. I truly enjoy life, and it keeps getting better. Just when I think I can’t get any happier, I do! It’s amazing.
As you walk with me, my hope is that something I say or a book that I recommend will actually enable you to step off my road and onto your own path. It may be just a tiny trail at first, and you may feel weird or uncomfortable. Eventually though, you will see the path becoming more open, and you’ll feel more secure with your thoughts and feelings. Before you know it, you’ll be walking on your own road and you’ll be happier than you ever thought possible!
I believe that there is another dimension at work, and it’s so incredible to notice it and tap into it. Again, I don’t have all the answers, but I do feel that there is something greater than us out there. I also believe with all my heart that it available to help you at every turn.
On May 1, 2010 – five weeks ago as of this posting – I quit my hedge fund accounting job to be able to share my story with you. I want to inspire you, even a tiny bit, to look for the flickers of coincidence in your life. As you notice these flickers, they will start to become flashes, and then one day you will start to notice miracles in your life. I guarantee this will happen for you if you stick with me – even for a short time.
I am Lisa Jones – join me on the road less traveled. It only gets better – I guarantee it!
