A quick peek at "Family Secrets", Secrets and Second Chances Book #1


Was life fair? Not in the least. Not when you worked your ass off for everything you’d ever dreamed of, and phoof, in an instant, with one sentence…it was gone!
Life doesn’t always work out the way we want. No matter what you’d done or how you’d done it, something without a doubt got in the way. You could spend days, weeks, months, even years working for the things you want out of life, only for it to be taken from you as if your dreams and schemes never existed. As if you’d never tried at all!
It’s funny how life seems to work out the opposite of what we want. Why bother to dream at all if your dreams never come to fruition? But if we don’t have our dreams and goals, to motivate and guide us, where would we be in this world? Lost, stumbling aimlessly, not driven by desire, blood, sweat, and tears!
We’ve all heard the phrase, “Life isn’t fair,” so why are we so defeated when things don’t turn out our way? When everything seems to fall apart? Shouldn’t we just keep trying? “If you fall down, get back up, dust yourself off, and try again.”

But what if…just to be fair in this unfair world…what if those dreams were something we weren’t meant to have at all? What if they were only to teach us something we didn’t see in ourselves? What if there was something better than our dreams waiting for us on the path of life?
