I would love to think of the readers of this book as my friends, sitting down to talk with me about our lives, fears, and anything that is really important to us. When you know that you have learned something really valuable, you feel that telling it to others may spare them the experience that you have had, but still let them in on the wisdom that you have gained. You don’t want your friends to have to pay the price that you paid for the experience, but want them to have only the best part. You want to do that for your friends. That is my hope, as I feel I have received something precious, and by sharing it with others, I unwrap the “gift,” and reveal that which has great value but was completely concealed inside. I choose to believe that I have received a priceless gift in the ugliest wrapping paper possible, and I want to use that analogy to help others try to see the possibilities and benefits that every experience affords. I think that to miss the opportunity to help others because I refused to look for the meaning that was hidden inside the ugliness is to miss the gift completely, and that would be a tragedy.
