I was pretty sure I would not live long, as I was always walking on the edge. I thought I was destined for either prison or early death. I met guys from the twelve-step program while in the county jail. They came in to do meetings. They talked to me once in a while, but I was not interested. I always felt a kinship with these guys, but I wasnt ready.
Emerging victorious from this and similar political and personal challenges, Morgan has built a successful career and life. She continues to make no apologies and shares the lessons she has learned along her journey of trial and triumph in “No Apologies: Lessons in Life, Love & Politics”.
Whether you're looking for practical and honest advice to help you navigate your personal or professional trajectory, a dynamic tool to help focus your life, an inside look at politics, or some inspiration to get involved in your community, “No Apologies” gives you an unfiltered look into Morgan's life experiences teaching us lessons that transcend life, love, and politics.
In August 2010, I came home from the hospital having survived endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery. I was fortunate to have received an abdominal aortic stent graft, which saved my life. To be honest, I was in a state of shock. Everything went so fast, from Ironman triathlete to aortic aneurysm patient in a matter of weeks. My problem was that I needed guidance and inspiration from someone who’d been there before. In fact, I really needed this manual, which would have helped me to handle my fear, taken me to helpful resources, and put me back on track with my Ironman training without all the concerns I suffered at that time and subsequently.
Fear is the biggest challenge.
I wrote this guide for the Kevin Morgan (FitOldDog) of August 2010, in the hope of helping those who are forced to follow me down this interesting and scary road. Maybe I was lucky with the outcome, but this kind of encouragement is essential for all of us.
This Manual Provides:
- Advice on reclaiming your new life based on personal experience.
- Some assistance with emotional recovery.
- Help with your fears.
- Guidance on safe exercise for better health.
- Homework to get you going again.
- Valuable links via my blog at fitolddog.com to supportive and informative resources.
- Someone to talk to.
Most importantly, you'll learn that you are not alone.
