Patti was raised in a dysfunctional family. She found herself surrounded by alcohol, drugs and the loss of her mom. Her life seemed focused on destruction. All she wanted was to be loved and cared for. Patti feels that her decision to travel with Jeff (then boyfriend, now spouse) saved her life. It felt like divine intervention. Patti turned her life around. She didn’t want to repeat the mistakes of her mom and wanted to be completely present. Patti shares the following wisdom: you don’t have the relive your past mistakes, you are not stuck, you have choices and you can break free. She suggests expressing gratitude daily, reading good books and practicing meditation.
