Inside the cover:
“Chronic pain is a tyrant that seeks to control every aspect of a person's life—body, mind, and spirit. Broken Body, Wounded Spirit offers pain sufferers’ guidance in fending off the tyrant and regaining control over their lives. Celeste and Jeff do a beautiful job of blending practical suggestions, inspirational quotes, and delightful seasonal images into daily nuggets of wisdom that uplift and fortify the body, mind, and spirit.”

This is a laugh out loud toolkit with humorous sayings, photos and lessons for lifestyle change bundled into a special 90-day guide to celebrate health.”

Final Analysis, Part I
How ironic it is that when we can count down our final breaths, we have no concern whatsoever for what others think of our person, ideas, and beliefs. Lives once lived secondary to fear of the judgment of others, of fitting in and participating in trends, fashions, and opinions are now freed to experience the folly of their yardsticks.
What is ultimately important is personal integrity. You never leave you. You create and recreate you. You give yourself that final report card and you sign it. Excuses are not pertinent nor are they accepted.
Dignity, integrity, love and commitment are what matter, everything else is confetti swept to the gutters from a parade we can barely remember.
In the final analysis, what is my yardstick?
To be continued, Part II will be in the “Spring” edition.
The books in this series are filled with famous quotes, affirmations and pleasing photos that the authors hope you will find motivating and rewarding as you pursue your journey in learning to live with chronic pain.
Available in paperback at all major online retailers soon, 237 pages, 6” x 9.”
