Even I wouldnt have bet on me to turn my life around. Im still puzzled as to whether I was driven by anger, competitiveness or simply a will to overcome my many obstacles. Probably it was a combination of all three.

I do recall that when I felt like crying I had to pretend that a joke was being played on me and that I had to turn the tables on my adversary -- whoever or whatever it was. I wanted things my mother never dared to wish for and I wanted my path to happiness to be laden with goodies.

A higher education was to be the key to my future, for I was a second generation child of an aspiring American family. What meaning would you give to the phrase Having it all as it relates to a womans life? As for me, I have generally embraced my own favorite categories of success, although not always in the order that made sense, because I frequently did things backwards!

My Big Five were: 1) Marriage, (2) Children, (3) Career, (4) Financial security- and (5) Good health. People told me I was out of my mind to think I could work full-time, go to school full-time and run a household as a single parent with three young children. I told my dissenters that I had everything under control! Sure I did, like kids always obey, money always comes in and employers fall at an educated womans feet. I had some control of my situation, but was naive as to my future difficulties.

Eventually, I learned that worthwhile marriages are often elusive- the bearing and successful rearing of children isnt a guarantee- a full-fledged career competes with the first two- financial security can escape in a heartbeat as external events occur- and the enjoyment of good health is often a roll of the dice.

The joker is always out there to gum up ones plans. Nevertheless, I have concluded that the secret of life success is embodied in the devoted pursuit of ones dreams -- it is the odyssey itself. If one cannot enjoy the trip, then whats the purpose of beginning the ride? That is what this book is about.
