One of my life defining moments came in 1996 while listening to a cassette recording of the book The 7 Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra. It was in those moments of listening that I “got it.” I got the power and truth of who I am, a spiritual being having a human experience.
Why was this a defining moment for me? Why this set of tapes and why this moment? In 1996, I was in the midst of deciding whether or not to leave my husband of twenty years, uproot my two small children from a life of safety and security, and “find myself.” Of course, that was my language and my story back then. Who was I to be putting myself first and allowing my happiness to be more important than theirs?
