HOW TO BE THE BEST YOU
I keep my life simple. In my head, I can write a book, organize and complete a project, create designs, and so on. At this point in time, when it comes to the logistics, I require assistive hands and feet—other people.
As I considered what to write, I thought of others like myself who have found themselves in a life interruption. Whatever “suddenly” occurred, it wasn’t on our conscious radar. There was no preparation to navigate the unfamiliar territory.
For some, the word change carries an ominous meaning. Moving away from familiar routines, locations, and people is threatening. Regardless of the emotional, financial, and health-related challenges, and in spite of the false sense of security it may bring, they choose to remain in their familiar, limiting circumstances. For others, change seems overwhelming. Where to begin?
My intention for writing, HOW TO BE THE BEST You, is to offer you a compass to find your way with an outline for simplifying necessary changes. There are 4 directional parts.
The first direction is for finding your true north, your purpose and passion. If a life interruption hasn’t idled your pursuits, hypnotic daily routines may have lulled you into a Rumpelstiltskin slumber, forgetting the dreams of your youth. I begin with suggestions, clues, and leads guiding you to rediscover your heart, along with anecdotes of my own soul search.
The second part exposes the subtle sabotage of the secret mind—your thoughts. You will learn to be the wrangler of your thoughts. Thoughts affect ALL areas of your life—emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual.
We all have specific strengths and weaknesses indicative of our temperaments and personalities. In the third section, I spotlight 6 accepted roadblocks or states-of-mind that can detour you from participating in your own excellent adventure. In reality, there are innumerable roadblocks. These most common habits will open your eyes to question and explore what others may lurk in your less-than-conscious acceptance.
In the fourth part, and on a lighter note, before you set out on your own personal journey to be the best you, I have scattered bread crumbs of food and fun to keep your Mensa mind and mighty muscles up to snuff in your search and on the path of your soul’s purpose and passion.
Each person’s path is unique, and we all experience inconveniences in the circumstances of our lives. Every inconvenience has the capacity to alter our pilgrimage’s timetable; and self-positioned roadblocks can prevent us from reaching our destinations. Only YOU can recognize which exits to take and which detours to avoid in finding satisfaction and fulfillment at your journey’s end.

REVIEWS for Views from My Chariot:
“I enjoyed it so much…funny and self deprecating…also, inspiring and insightful! I have a feeling it’s just the tip of the iceberg. Cynthia is the epitome of a steel magnolia!”
–Bev Perea (reader)
“I’ve known Cynthia White for nearly 3 decades. Her external and internal beauty have always been appealing to the eye and soothing for the soul. Her writing reveals willingness to be candid about life’s harshness without losing humor. Her confessions of having to cultivate the fruit of forbearance with loved ones, herself, and with the Lord…is a refreshing departure from Christianese religiosity. Reading anything written by Cynthia is a rewarding investment of time.”
-Jim Croft, author of Invisible Enemies
“If you have a porch swing…please read this book there….This is more like a conversation with a friend than any self-help book I’ve ever read. Cynthia is a wonderful story teller. She gets (so) caught up in telling her story it’s entirely possible to forget you’re reading. There are self-help tips, but they’re not just limited to the disabled…I hope this is the first of many.”
“…it is very well-written, heartwarming, witty, informative, and gives the reader a glimpse into what a precious child of God Cynthia is! I admire her adventurous spirit, tenacity, wisdom, and desire to continually forge ahead and grow.”
-Cheryl Snow (reader)
