Several current books invite readers to take a walk out of their world by following the author's own travels; but 21 Days in Maui: How I Gave Myself Permission To Be Free additionally shares the author's determination to use only three weeks in Maui to consciously change the patterns of her life, serving as an inspirational journey of reflection for all who wish to join her.
Now, three weeks isn't a long time, no matter how determined one is to change - but Day One begins with a bang, pairing an uplifting poster board sign in a store window with an unusual phone call out of the blue from a normally-reserved ex who wants to know what Como truly desires in a relationship.
The changes blossom from there, like a Hawaiian flower, unfolding daily as Como moves from an open-minded truth-seeker to a woman who actively embraces life.
Part of her “flowering” can be attributed to the magical environment she finds herself in, and part of it is having gifted herself with unstructured time— no obligations, no commitments, no one to answer to or compromise with.
