Allison Carmen spent many years fighting a powerful addiction. It wasn't drugs, alcohol or fame. It was an addiction to certainty. If she didn't know what the future would bring and who does? she felt anxious and afraid. This decades-long struggle followed her through college, marriage, parenthood, and a successful law career. While everything seemed fine from the outside, Allison was in a constant battle that was unwinnable, sapping her energy, attention, and spirit. Until the day she discovered the power of Maybe.
