I was so busy focusing on the bad -- which so many of us have been programmed to do -- that I was missing the amazingness I was surrounded by. I was missing the smiles on my daughter's faces. I was missing the love in my husbands eyes and I was wasting my days being a victim. I realized that by simply changing my perspective I was able to change my entire life. Thankfully, one day, I started to consider how lucky my dad was that he didn't suffer. How grateful I was that he was beamingly happy until his very last second of life. I thought about how blessed we were to have all been together dancing, drinking and having one of the greatest nights in a long time on the very night he died.

I started to think about how lucky my mom was that she didn't have any financial worries and that she was a healthy capable woman that has a whole life ahead of her. I wondered about how free and happy my dad is -- wherever he is -- and am grateful that I can still feel him in my heart and soul. I realized that waking up everyday and taking a breath is gift enough to be grateful for and that every single day is the first day of the rest of your life if but only if, you choose to make it that way.

I realized with great distinction that I hold they key to my very own happiness and that I have a choice. I have a choice to live a happy life or, the option to play the victim and spend the rest of my days feeling sorry for myself and being miserable. I recognized that I had allowed my circumstance to become the way it was but what was even more profound was the realization that I am also able to transform it into whatever I want it to be.

I make the rules and nobody else in my life.

Proof of Afterlife, death is NOT the

I choose who I want around and how much of myself I want to give and guess what Once I realized this I started to change. It wasn't easy and even today I have bad days. Days where I cry and days where the pain of missing my daddy is physical pain in my heart and soul but, the wonderful thing about it is that this pain doesn't cripple me anymore because I know with every ounce of me now that my father's death was not the end, it was the beginning It was the beginning of a different era in our lives and for that, I can finally be truly grateful.

What do I mean by this? What I mean is that my dad's life on earth will never be forgotten for many reasons. In , the island saw one of its most lavish cremations ever as Agung Suyasa, head of the royal family, was burned along with 68 commoners.

Having enjoyed several Ian Rankin books and Inspector Rebus in particular in the past, I decided to read a few more starting with this novella. I thought it would be a good choice in order to refresh my memory of Rebus and to get me back into the series. Unfortunately it never really worked out that way for me and I was disappointed with the story itself but found little consolation with the writing style which I enjoy. The story itself is a sub plot from another of Rankin's novels 'Dead Souls' w Having enjoyed several Ian Rankin books and Inspector Rebus in particular in the past, I decided to read a few more starting with this novella.

The story itself is a sub plot from another of Rankin's novels 'Dead Souls' when one of his ex girlfriends from high school contacts him when her son has goes missing from a local nightclub. Not his best work but fortunately I am well aware he can do a lot better and will read a few more Ian Rankin novels shortly. Dec 04, Hobart rated it liked it Shelves: reads.

This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. I might have gotten more out of this book if I'd read it in that order, but it might have hurt the novel. I'm not sure. Basically, this is one of the subplots of Dead Souls -- Rebus' looking for the missing son of a people he knew in school -- in its original form.

It'd b This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. It'd be modified, expanded, and given a different ending in the novel. There's a subplot, mildly related, involving organized crime and gambling -- in much the same way that other crimes were associated with the missing person's case in Dead Souls.

It is interesting to see how Rankin wrote something, and then came back a couple of years later and repurposed it. But that's about all I have to say for this. It was interesting -- but the version in the novel is better. The subplot didn't do much for me, either.

It was okay, but it really didn't seem necessary. The completist in me is glad I read it, but I think I'd have been okay with missing it, too. Jan 17, Shirley Schwartz rated it really liked it.

This little novella would be a good introduction for people to Ian Rankin's Inspector Rebus series. The novella is a direct link to a full-length book in the series Dead Souls. I had already read Dead Souls, so no surprises here for me, but what a great idea-write a small little book that can be read on its own outside of the series, and get more fans to your series! Ian Rankin is one of the best crime writers out there today in my opinion. His series is wonderful-great character development, This little novella would be a good introduction for people to Ian Rankin's Inspector Rebus series.

His series is wonderful-great character development, wonderful plotting, gritty and hard-hitting. I also love his various sub-plots and plotting threads that get inextricably linked together as you read one of his books. So, try this little novella, and then begin a wonderful series. That is my advice. View 1 comment. A novella in which Rebus is drawn back to Fife to help friends from his teenage years and observes a contact which helps back in Edinburgh.

To view it, click here. Set in Scotland, this short novella is one of Rankin's Detective Rebus crime stories. It's about gambling and, despite its title, no one dies. Perhaps Rankin's longer works are more satisfying.

Jun 20, Shane Harrison rated it it was ok. Having just finished Hanging Garden, I found this difficult to place in the series. It suggests its derived from Dead Souls, or in between the two. Betwixt and between, it's rather slight. There's no resolution of the story and I felt I was reading a sketch done in preparation for a fully crafted piece.

  • Yes, it's full of mood and introspection, Rankin's such an excellent writer, but I think I could have skipped this. Aug 18, Helen rated it liked it Shelves: mystery-thriller. This Inspector Rebus story is a novella, so it it loses some points right thereI like more meat on the bones. It's the story of Rebus searching for a missing young man, the son of a woman he dated many years before. I seriously thought that he was going to turn out to be Rebus' own son, but no such luck.
