Have you ever faced a life-changing decision?
You won’t always know you’re ready until you’re ready, but when you’re ready, you’ll go.
When it became clear that my marriage was ending, I felt paralyzed and overwhelmed. In an attempt to simplify my life, I bought a Sprinter van, pared down my possessions to only what would fit inside it, and set out on a spontaneous drive across the country to explore new possibilities for my life.
Travel is good medicine.
During my cross-country trip, I grieved. I wrestled with forgiveness. And I slowly reclaimed my sense of personal sovereignty.

"WOW! What an amazing journey. I felt like I was right there with Stacy the entire time while I was reading and I had a hard time putting it down. I admire women who are able to overcome obstacles and enhance their lives by facing their fears, learning and growing. Stacy takes the reader through her ups and downs and has a profound way of turning negative situations into positive ones in which she grows into a stronger person. She inspired me to take a look at my own life and examine where and how I could make improvements. SLOW DOWN! Take time for yourself and do the things you want to do NOW instead of waiting until later (which may be too late) stood out to me! That was my personal best takeaway. My favorite part of the book was Stacy's uncanny way of making the me feel like I was right there with her, experiencing everything good and bad, being on an emotional roller coaster, and eventually growing to be the strong woman she is today. Thank you, Stacy for sharing this experience with me. I believe my life will be better because of it."
