We all face a series of tough and often lonely junctions throughout our life. These shape our values and strengthen our intuition, which helps us become more confident.
The twelve tales in this short autobiographical anthology can be read as a travel book, but really illustrate some universal values in decisions that most people will face at some point in their lives. I’ve also added a bonus essay.
