All I Want Is ... Everything
All I Want Is ... Everything is a life-altering roadmap what will profoundly change lives. The book's messages encourages readers to think of themselves first and concentrate on how to fulfill their emotional and spiritual needs in new and intensely different ways. Born from a search for something missing from her life it is the story of Kim's personal transformation.
Her fresh way of thinking shatters the notion that one cannot have it all. This thought provoking book offers readers a step-by-step, easy to implement plan that identifies and eliminates destructive behaviors and uncovers ways for you to discover your everything.
These revealing exercises are designed to brighten, strengthen and then keep your internal spirit burning brightly. This book goes far beyond the surface-scraping of other self help books and delves deeply into the answers of how to live a life of balance, love, gratitude and even material possessions.
I believe there are no coincidences. In my heart I know that if you have this book in your hands you have it for a reason. Perhaps you came upon it by chance or a friend gave it to you. Maybe someone was speaking about it and you overheard the conversation. A power greater than you or I is at work. Maybe it is not meant for you but for someone you care about and you want them to have the happiness and joy in their life they deserve. Maybe by you reading it first, you will realize there are changes you can make to your life that will not only enrich your life, but will enrich the lives of everyone around you.
I look upon the journey I have taken as being as important to me as it is to everyone I have touched along the way. Each of us can benefit from making positive changes in our lives and that is why I am sharing my story with you. Some of you may be touched deeply by this book; and others will read it and take away small pieces for their journey. Some may find the timing is not right and will keep it in their stack of other unread books until the time is right. Still others will decide it is too risky to venture into the water without knowing what lies beneath the surface. Be unafraid and walk up to the water’s edge. Consider dipping your foot in the water.
You may find your fear is unfounded and the things that are lurking below the surface that you have been afraid to face are not all that frightening once you face them. As painful as you fear it might be to begin this transformation, the happiness and joy you will experience will eclipse any uncertainty you feel along the journey. Similar to childbirth, it is easy to lose sight of the miracle that awaits but when that painful process is over and the miracle is in your hands, the memory of that pain fades until it is all but forgotten. There is no greater gift to give yourself than to live the rest of your time here with inner peace, joy and happiness. You have the power to unlock the invisible shackles that weigh us down and make life more of a chore than a celebration. You hold the key by deciding to take control and work towards recapturing the light within your spirit.
We all know the saying “You are the only real problem you have, and you are the only real solution”. And it is very true. No one can take this journey for you; it is a voyage that everyone must take on their own.
Do you want to be one of the lucky few who know what it really means to live? Do you want to learn how to live without placing conditions on your life and allow happiness to fill your spirit? We all know the conditions we place on ourselves like: I will be happy when… I find love, lose weight, and have the house, car or the life depicted in my dreams. You must no longer keep happiness at bay waiting for the time when everything is perfect in your life, before allowing yourself to have your everything.
We will work through this process step by step. For this journey you will only need two things - a journal or notebook with lined pages and, most importantly, the belief that you are worth the effort to find the wondrous gifts that await you. You may need to read a chapter more than once before moving on to the next. Always do the work I ask of you as you move through the process. Even if you are uncomfortable writing down your thoughts and observations, look within and find the words to put on paper. They will be a true reflection of the progress you will make on this journey. Envision this process as walking up a long flight of stairs looking up from the bottom to the top seems far away. But, if you take the steps one at a time and rest when you tire, you will be at the top without even realizing you have climbed all that way. Each step will be one step closer to the happiness and peace you are searching for.
I can tell you with all the love in my heart that you too can have “your everything”. You have all that you need within yourself to find inner peace and it is not reliant upon external conditions. But please don’t confuse being content with what you have, with not striving to have more. Human nature is to always look for something more which is why you are reading this book. Understand that there is nothing wrong with wanting more or better. The problem occurs when we make the absence of what we want and the lack of appreciation for what we have, exclusive of our own happiness. This is not a rehearsal for the life that we want, this IS your life so please read on and make the most of every moment of the gift of life we have been given.
My wish for each of you is that when we reach the end of this book together you will realize, as I have, the power in living each day with…
…love for all and be able to truly love everyone including yourself without restrictions.
…grace with gentleness towards others and acceptance of their limitations.
…and gratitude for all that we have been given.
“A life is like a piece of paper on which everyone leaves their mark” – Chinese Proverb
My wish is that the mark I leave on your paper is one that will carry you to the end of the journey with the light of your spirit shining brightly and peace and contentment in your heart.
