Maurice Legendre lives in Asheville, NC. Though raised in a loving family he still struggled with anger and sadness. Believing there must be other possibilities he studied, traveled and wrote this book. HOLD ON JUST A MINUTE! . . . Since this whole literary project is about self-connection and personal honesty, I feel inauthentic impersonalizing my own story here. I would like to share my background with you directly and in my own voice. I understand that it is a little long. Yet if you want to know where I’m coming from and how this book might help you, here it is. Born in San Francisco, I was raised in a community for most of my childhood. From California to Virginia, I lived in rural family sized communities. I have witnessed all my life that we each have different ways of dealing with choices and challenges. I realized that a solution can be reached, not by establishing right and wrong for the group, rather by each person involved finding the root of their truth and presenting that in a way that allowed each to express something meaningful, and to feel heard and accepted. Through this awareness I realized that I can take the same approach to my own inner conflicts and challenges. In fact it is by achieving my own inner resolution that I pave the way for an external solution. In my teens and twenties I became more acutely aware of self-judgments, doubts and fears. While my external experience of high school and college went smoothly I suffered internally with feelings of intense confusion, disappointment and a sense of “not enough.” After college I started changing my internal questions from “why me?” to “how do I change this.” A series of experiences prompted me to dive fully into my frustrations in search of an answer. As I peeled the layers back to find the source of my own personal pain, I began to understand that many of the layers were shared human challenges. This led me to writing I Choose; A Life I Love Living as part of my process. The writing, editing, experiencing, and now offering of this book has been a huge part of my own personal transformation. Even though I still encounter challenges in my life, my process of dealing with them is radically different. I feel that when we each develop self-awareness and acceptance it makes us much more capable of dealing compassionately and wisely with the challenges of our world. My deepest gratitude to all people who courageously choose to know and love themselves.
