What a difference attitude makes. Author Scott Stevenson, in his narrative memoir Looks Easy Enough, tells the story of four years in his life with new wife Susan. These four years begin with the 46-year-old architect's first marriage, preparing for an early retirement and building a dream home in Cuyamaca Woods in California—but instead of a bright and shiny dream, it all ends up something more like a nightmare. Susan is diagnosed with breast cancer; a forest fire threatens their new house; a sister …

There are periods of time in our life that are significant. Not just the birthdays, holidays, weddings, and graduation but also those tough times. That moment when your worst fear is realized as the doctor diagnosis you with cancer. The final straw that leads to divorce proceedings. That sinking feeling when all your retirement savings is lost in the stock market crash. At the time, these experiences are devastating. Yet, in retrospect they define us. They provide an opportunity to grow, learn, …
