One of the most difficult things to do in life is to be vulnerable and present yourself with such a level of transparency that every scar you once tried to hide is visible for the world to see. That is what you will experience as you read the emotionally written story of I AM THIRIVING NOW- From a life of Emotional Pain to a Beautiful Life of Freedom.
Peggy Bareh’s ability to allow you a glimpse into her emotional past, causes you to reflect on those hidden areas in your life that may have once caused you pain, or they may still be tender spots or even gaping wounds that you try to mend with superficial antidotes. As you follow Peggy, she allows you to step behind the curtain of her heart and see the pain and suffering, yet you find yourself somehow celebrating this heroine of survival.
With each step that she takes out of the abyss of brokenness, you can actually feel her heart pounding with new-found confidence and assurance. This read makes you applaud and cheer as you realize that she has transformed from victim into victor. I must confess that I suffered domestic abuse in my marriage. I did not succumb to the blows of the hand, but to the divesting blows of words that cut and wounded me so badly that I lost my identity. I hid the shame, guilt and tears behind a wide public smile. I did everything that I could to hide my secret from my family and the world. This façade resulted in me becoming a prisoner of my own Foreword 1 xvii mind to the point that when I looked in the mirror, I did not recognize the woman staring back at me with lifeless eyes.
This beautiful book, I AM THRIVING NOW, would have been a Godsend for me those many years ago. I thank God that my faith, grit, determination, and family support helped me. However, I am so elated that for those who may not have the support networks or know where to turn there is this amazing resource of truth, life, hope and love that is waiting to guide you out of your state of darkness and transform you into the liberated and celebrated being you were meant to be. Peggy Bareh dared to rise and challenge her thinking. There are those moments that are pivotal and transforming in our lives, and that moment came for Peggy when she read the book The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy. With a sweeping revelation, she was suddenly propelled into a world of possibilities. Peggy not only realized but accepted and elected to take accountability and responsibility for her own happiness by first doing the work to shift her mindset. Just as Peggy began to think and believe differently and create a new world for herself, you can too. This book, is truly one of self-discovery with 14 proven steps to help you rediscover your truth, celebrate your authentic self, love yourself and rise like a phoenix with resilient determination to not only survive, but thrive.

“There comes a point where you no longer care if there’s a light at the end of the tunnel or not. You’re just sick of the tunnel.” – Ranata Suzuki
Immediately, on coming out of the school gate, I dashed into my car, feeling the frustration building as I clenched my jaws and felt sick in my stomach. I thought I would explode. With my hands shaking, I gripped the steering wheel and took a deep breath, hoping to drive home safely. As I started driving down my street, I felt choked up and couldn’t resist the tears. Storming into the house, I hurried to my bedroom, dropped by my bedside, and with my nails clasped in my hair, I screamed - “I am fed up! I’m tired! It’s not fair! It-is-not-fair!!!” Sadly enough, this seemed to have been my usual tormenting feeling and routine after my relationship breakup. It left me disappointed, devastated, angry, and feeling rejected. As I sought refuge in an unfamiliar town, the thought of starting life from scratch was frightening. I wrestled at nights, trying to find comfort from any glimmer of hope, but most times, I lost the fight as my painful memories descended on My Turning Point xxiii me like a wolf on its prey. This torturing process went on for over three months, and the physical and psychological impact was written all over me. I didn’t dare to look in the mirror for fear of seeing an image of a cranky person with droopy eyelids and pale skin looking back at me. I unconsciously and unhealthily lost approximately one stone. This was due to sleeplessness and loss of appetite. If I had any way to stay locked in my room, that would have been the best option, but my kids needed me.

What caught my attention was the bright-yellowish cover. I peered forward to read the title, which read, “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” by Joseph Murphy; out of curiosity, I picked up the book and asked the librarian if I could borrow it. Before she could say, “Sure!”, the feeling of emptiness and hopelessness crept in, with a loud voice saying, “Don’t waste your time! That’s not going to help you!” Immediately, I walked off, heading straight to the exit door. But as I pushed opened the second set of doors to come out of the library, another thought popped into my head - “For the very first time in years, you can finally have the time to read again; go get that book.”
Straight away, I made a U-turn, speeding towards the trolley where I believed the book was. I heaved a sigh of relief when I picked it up, scanned and bagged it. When I got home, instead of lamenting, I started reading. It seemed to me like the content was describing me, outlining all the monster thoughts that were crippling me. From one chapter, I sped through the next, the next and the next, and in three days, I had read the book from cover to cover. One key message I grasped was that “I own the key to unlocking my happiness.
