Some insights on FAMILY WISDOM FROM THE MONK WHO SOLD HIS FERRARI...part 1

It is about a woman, named Catherine Cruz who has it all in this world. She is a successful business woman, who believed that happiness would arrive when she bought the right car, built the right house & promoted to the right job. She judged the value of the human being not by the size of their heart, but by the size of their wallet & the contents of their bank account.

As the brightest student in her class, she had her pick of the best companies on the planet to work for. She led a very successful career path and finally she owns a web-based company called BraveLife.com. That was the beginning of all the miseries in her life. Catherine was 7 years into marriage that lack any trace of passion or emotional connection. By the time she'd roll into the driveway at night, her husband, Jon, would be asleep and by the Jon'd get up, her Mercedes would be winding its way to her office. But it was far more than her relationship with Jon that was causing her to feel so empty & disheartened as a person. She has two children-Porter & Sarita-that were suffering as a result of her eternal absences & negligence. She knew & she felt this emptiness-despite of having all those luxury lifestyle around her-but she just couldn't tear herself away from the office & her hyper-complex professional life carried with it.

"If i had to live my life over again, i would relax more.
i'd be sillier than i have been on this trip.
i'd climb more mountains,swim more rivers & watch
more sunsets. i'd have more actual troubles & less
imaginary ones. Oh i've had my moments, and if i had to
do it over again,i'd have more of them.
in fact,i'd try to have nothing else,
just moments, one after another.
and i'd pick more daisies."
Nadine Stair, age 89
