If you are sick and tired of being, well…sick and tired, this might be a good read for you. Told from both sides of the story, this 220-page book takes you on a roller coaster of a ride through the lives of an average everyday couple who decided that the American dream wasn’t working the way they were taught it should. Step inside their lives as they walk through cancer, chronic life-threatening illness of a child, Fibromyalgia, gale force winds, flying chicken coops, cross-dressing, and marijuana…
What the hell would possess us to write a tell-all book about the personal ins and outs of our lives? Well, for starters, after 3 decades of working, saving, penny pinching, and clawing our way to the top, like most North American families, we were finding we were getting farther behind, not further ahead. In addition, life threw so many lemons at us that we realized later any one of them might have been enough to cause other people to pack it in.
It was because of these lemons and a hard look at where we were headed that we decided to hack the shit out of life to a whole new level. We didn’t do it by looking for shortcuts or “cheating” the system…we did it by stripping away everything in our lives that didn’t align with our goals and dreams. The result: In five years and early in our 40’s, we retired from the daily grind to begin building our dream home and dream work. We now enjoy a very relaxed and laid back lifestyle. We wake and start work at the time our bodies decide – not the alarm clock. We stop work, sometimes at supper, and sometimes at midnight – but it’s ours to decide. We homeschool two wonderful teenage boys and we always have time to stop for coffee. We would classify ourselves as being married to our “best friend” and have truly discovered the meaning of happiness.
If this sounds too good to be true, yeah, you’re right, it probably is…but if you’re just even a little bit curious; if there is just a spark of desire to want more in your life and in your relationship, perhaps our story isn’t so crazy. Perhaps there might be a few morsels of wisdom to be had; and perhaps, you too could begin living the most amazing life ever…
“Life has an incredible way of teaching us with love or utterly destroying us with road blocks. It’s all the same – It’s just how you choose to respond that it becomes one or the other.”
