To many of us, the experiences that we grew up taking for granted leave become distant dreams in our adult lives: marriages that last a lifetime; safe neighborhoods to call home; the certainty that our children will have a better life than we did; and most of all, lots of time to spend as we wish, living for the moment. Instead, we find our time and energy spent recovering from the past or protecting ourselves from the future. The result is a desperate, sometimes dangerous, and often unsuccessful, search for meaning in our lives. In Real Moments, Barbara De Angelis defines happiness not as an acquisition, but as a skill--the skill of capturing every moment and living it completely. With insight, wisdom, and vision, she teaches us how to rediscover real moments with our mates and our children, with our work and our play, in sex and intimacy, and real moments with ourselves. It is an examination of our relationship with the process of living itself, offering inspiration as well as practical tools for creating more of one of the most precious moments of all--moments of true meaning in our lives.

Barbara DeAngelis does a wonderful job of helping you understand how to make your present life more meaningful and happy by having more 'real moments.' By opening up about her own life and experiences, she helps you to understand how to be more present, appreciate and pay close attention to what is going on in your life which can cause you to have more moments of deep meaning and joy. I also agreed with her point that how you think and react to a situation you are in instead of changing the actual situation can have a dramatic effect on your life. Well worth the read.
