The Narratives is a collection of short introspective essays written by an average guy in an effort to better understand himself, his life, and his relationship with the world around him while traveling the road of self-discovery. This series can best be described as the author's unique brand of journaling, encompassing both self-reflective entries, and an expression of thought and opinion surrounding social issues of the present day. The Narratives: From The Heart remains consistent with the author's primary theme of self-discovery but takes on a more heartfelt tone than previous books in the series because it was written, in part, during a highly emotional and trying time in the author's life; a time when everything he knew of his present and believed about his future had changed in a heartbeat. The raw and powerful emotions he felt as he experienced them are on display throughout. And as he works his way through each, he scrutinizes his character, how he has changed as a human being, and what it means for him in the future, while reflecting on significant touch-point moments from his past that bring his life full-circle. Each short journal-style essay presented in this work focuses on the author's search for clarity and strength in an effort to grasp what's truly important in his life, and is written with full transparency, providing the reader with a unique window into the author's soul. The Narratives: From The Heart is an unparalleled work in vulnerability that brings him closer to reconciling his life, and provides hope to those navigating the unchartered and sometimes turbulent waters of the heart and the soul. This book is the seventh volume in The Narratives series.
