"Life is what happens to you while you're busy
making other plans." John Lennon
Most people go about their lives with the expectation that setting goals and making plans provides a reasonable level of assurance that things will work out pretty much as intended. What happens when our lives take a detour into the unexpected or is derailed by tragedy? Some people when met with challenges they did not volunteer for, crumple in defeat and become bitter or blame people and events for their misfortune…while others stand up straighter and dig deeper to face what’s in front of them. How do those who meet life’s challenges with their metaphorical feet on the ground and their sights in a forward-moving direction find their strength? Forced Revision Vol. 1
is an exploration through personal stories of six women who chose to turn the unexpected and unforeseen into transformational experiences and to find purpose and meaning from difficult circumstances.
