Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth is an acronym for the Bible. As I thought about it, I realized that basic instructions for managing our lives from an emotional, mental, and spiritual perspective would be another valuable tool. This book is a self-help journey of thoughts and practices to manage our lives in a manner that would bring more joy, self-worth, and love into our existence. The ideas presented are taken directly from therapeutic clients embracing concepts learned through their therapy experiences. They often found that what they discovered through these personal discussions around growth and change was basic information they felt compelled to share with others. When reporting what they told others, it appeared they were sharing these thoughts in various environments, at work, at dinner, working out, and several other lived encounters. Their messages were what Donna said and whatever thought they felt might benefit the listener. This prompted "Donna Said" an illustrated cliff note style handbook with various seeds of thought one could apply to many situations we are presented with while being human.

With an eerie creak, the ancient key turns in the lock, sealing the room's entrance behind them and leaving the guests with no option but to confront the mysterious puzzle that looms.

Every whisper of the past may hold the key to the present, and the walls seem to pulse with the secrets of those who have crossed their threshold.
