A True Story from Embracing
This actually happened to me when I was in
When I was in my late teens
something happened that shook me to my
roots and yet started
me on a journey to fulfillment that has
resulted in me being

Let me tell you the storyÖ
There I was, 17 years old,
6'3"tall and weighing 129 pounds of
rippling, power packed muscle. I really
did look like a broomstick with glasses.
I was standing in front of
a full length mirror combing my hair
when my aunt, who was
visiting from out of town, passed
by , looked at me and said,Ē You know
Mike itís a damn good thing God gave you
personality because he sure didnít give
you looks.Ē She laughed and moved on
I just stood there in shock
and disbelief not knowing what to say.
If you were standing in my place and heard these
words directed at you how would you have
I didnít realize the long
term impact her words would have on me
during the coming years and how I would
struggle to heal and grow beyond their
For many years after I was
married whenever my wife and I were
dressed to go out on the town she would
look at me with admiration and say,
ďMike, do you ever look handsome.Ē
For a long time my response
would be, ď Carol, Iím clean and I smell
good but donít get carried away.Ē
The lesson I learned from
this is clear: We
donít always know how our words affect
they leave our mouth itís impossible to
get them back and their negative,
destructive impact can remain for years.
Because of this hurtful
event I became committed to monitoring
my mouth to make certain I didnít hurt
others in the name of trying to be
funny. Being human, I sometimes fail but
when I do I immediately say Iím sorry
and get back on track.
I ask you Öcan you relate
to this story? Has
something like this ever happened to

overcome the negative impact on your

review by Wendy Priesnitz (
Ontario Canada) is for: Embracing
the Mystery (Paperback)
This is a little jewel of a book, which contains a wealth of inspiration
for living a happier, healthier, more
fulfilling life. Moore provides
tips for reducing stress, improving
self-esteem, banishing fear, nurturing
patience, and more. But more than that, he
helps us get back in touch with the sense of
joy and wonder that so often gets buried
under the busyness of daily life. The author
is also a cartoonist and his casual writing
style is enhanced by a generous dose of
appropriate cartoons, which never fail to
bring a smile to my lips, no matter how glum
I'm feeling. This is one of those
books to which I return whenever I feel
like I need help becoming a better person.

tell me that she had recently
attended one of my talks and
purchased my book Embracing the
Mystery. She wanted me to know how
helpful it was to her.
She went on to explain the
difficult situation she was living
in. Ever since her husband had
been diagnosed with terminal
cancer he had become verbally
abusive to her. It was putting a
serious strain on the marriage and
she wanted help coping with her
After she had listened to my
presentation, purchased my book
and applied what she learned she
found her relationship with her
husband improving. Even though her
situation hadn't changed, her
ability to cope had. I love
to hear this kind of story.
