Split Second: Redefining My American Dream
Kelli J. Miller, author
When does the American Dream turn into a trap? What does it mean to succeed? What really gives meaning to our lives? Kelli Miller never had to worry about it – she had it all: a family, a career, a sprawling home, even an executive title. She thought she’d escaped her Midwestern roots and was sailing towards a golden future. Then, in a pivotal moment, confronted with the shadow of death, she found herself suddenly awake to the grim reality: the dream had consumed her life, and left her lost and alone. In Split Second, Kelli tells the story of how she set herself free, and recommitted herself to the most important pieces of her life: family, community, and a new openness to experience. It is the story of one woman’s journey to find out what really matters and where her happiness ultimately lay.
