If you wish to reflect upon how you live, or how you can take control of your life, then this book is for you. This book deals with my experiences of the things that I have wished for myself, how the paths to my goals have taken their course, what I finally received, whether I was ultimately happy with the result and why. In short, this book is both about the success stories and also the failures, as well as about what I have learnt in the process. The idea to write the book came during my hepatitis C therapy. Back then I was unable to teach, but I had more than enough time for reflection. Shortly before my illness, I gave some consideration as to what I want from my future. In reply to this question, I was never able to find an answer that entirely satisfied me. All situations described here are in the order in which they occurred, in which they ran through my mind. As I wrote the final story, not only was it clear to me what it is that I want, but also how I will proceed with all of this in the future. In addition, I have found the path to myself and to inner peace.
