"​I was surprised by a few of my mixed feelings when reading Becoming One - A Journey of Self-Discovery and Re-connection from Within.  At first, I just thought I would learn more about my friend Connie Rotella, but I quickly realized the contrast I was feeling.  In her book, Connie had masterfully managed to invite me to look introspectively and rediscover....myself!  What began as Connie's journey about self-discovery quickly turned into my own.  I realized that I wasn't alone in this crazy world and that like many others, I had reason to take a closer look at the past, present and into the future. How much of who I am and how I live today is due to my past roller-coaster ride and how much of what I will be tomorrow is a result of how I handle today.  So from what I thought would be an "an easy read", I not only was able to discover the little hidden gems about my friend Connie, but I realized a few hidden gems of my own.

When faced with simultaneous unexpected life-threatening family illnesses, Connie felt like she was drowning – as if she was losing her family, her foundation and herself. How does one navigate so much uncertainty at once? Where was the life she was living yesterday and what lies ahead tomorrow?

In Becoming OneA Journey of Self-discovery and Reconnection from Within, Connie Rotella shares how she transformed her emotional vulnerability by accessing a new awareness that connected and harmonized with her life-long passion for dance.

She gained a new understanding of how easy it would be to allow fear to lead and her self-belief to fade and disappear. Through these darkest of times, by friending a lightness of being within she gained strength by listening to the joyful voice of her inner child.  In this candidly-written book, readers are invited to experience their own personal journey and learn how challenges can transform into clarity and appreciation for the bigger picture.

Connie discovered that by listening carefully, the guidance she was seeking was within her all along and she encourages each of us to bravely reconnect with our own powerful voice within, believe in our ability to heal and move boldly toward purpose instead of running from it.
