I Could Use Your Help

Hi everyone! I am working on a book (writing it, not reading it, LOL) and could use some voluntary input. The book is about life. It is an inspirational book which will be full of anecdotes about life. My views on life, hopefully your views on life, and items gathered from several sources.

I would love to include your input. Anything at all--serious, funny, sad, silly. You can include more than one if you would like. Some ideas might include:

What do you consider a successful life?
What gives your life meaning?
What is a fulfilled life?
What are some ways someone else's life has touched yours?
What are some ways your life has touched someone else's?
If you had your life to live over again, knowing what you know now, what (if anything) would you do differently?

If you have anything you would like to share, please send me a PM with your story/stories. I will acknowledge each contribution by first names and last initials, along with your state/province/country if you would like.

Thank you in advance for any input you care to share.

Barbara

Barbara best wishes on your book - I know it will take a lot of your time but in the end it will be all worth it.

My thoughts are with you.
