More than 15 years ago, life wasn’t heading in the direction I was hoping for. My mind became my worst enemy. All I could think about was, “Why are bad things happening to me, why are negative people in my life and why do I find the worst in every situation?”

I knew the only way to find peace and happiness would begin with me. I started reading three positive books a week, listened to uplifting CDs in my car and made constant prayers throughout my days.
