Summary Despite doing "all the right things" and successfully rebuilding her life after a period of deep personal and professional turmoil where she lost almost everything, Victoria Price still felt something profoundly missing from her life. This memoir is a heartfelt, candid account of Victoria's journey toward rediscovering her joy and purpose after years of struggle. To live her truest life, she realized she had to be willing to let go of her fears and get lost in order to find her way. Doing so meant re-programming the messages she had internalized while growing up, taking inspiration from her father Vincent Prince's example. As she got to know her father again through attending horror conventions and celebrations fo his life, Victoria saw that Vincent embodied traits that had disappeared from her own life : his love for people and compassion for others, his generosity of spirit and simple kindnessess, his enthusiasm for new experiences, and his love of life. By embracing her own spirituality and letting herself detach from other people's expectations, Victoria found a new way to embrace life. Highlighting the importance of a daily practice of joy - the pure and simple delight in beling alive - The Way of Being Lost is a reminder of the importance of making peace with our past in order to expand our futures and live our most authentic lives. This intimate and inspiring book shares the lessons learned from a powerful family heritage of remaining curious, giving back, and saying Yes. Join her as she shares the stories, experiences, and lessons that led her back to her truest self, including her lifesaving daily practice of joy.
