About Living Without Reservations
Living Without Reservations is a tale of mid life reinvention both without a plan and without hesitation.,,, and little money. Barbara Elaine Singer openly shares the thrills and fears as she reinvents her life and leaves the comforts of an upper middle class lifestyle. “Is This All There Is to Life?“ This 44 year old woman ” quit her life”, or perhaps life quit her. There had to be more than waiting for retirement and living in a world where enough is never enough. She dreamed of a life that was so much more. A true story of a life-changing, awe inspiring, “all-in” journey of globetrotting and discovery of what it means to be brave, dream big, think outside the box and create one’s own definition of happiness. Barbara’s wake-up call came with divorce, the sudden death of her fiancé and her only child going off to college. Alone, devastated and yearning to explore, she calls her dad and asks to borrow his camper for a road trip. He says no, but… What happens next is an odyssey that stretches across generations and lifestyles from Alaska to the Caribbean to Italy with barely a breath in-between. Through it all, Barbara finds a way to rekindle an understanding with her quickly growing-up, distraught daughter, and a new life of her own dreams and her own gutsy making. This story is for all those who say “some day.” It will inspire you to take that leap of faith and begin living your dreams. Barbara always dreamed of being a wanderer and seeker of living a true life, not just going through the motions. She had done the wife, mother and corporate executive life in the suburbs, but found it didn’t feed her soul. One crazy night changed everything.
