What is the key of a happy life? Living it passionately, says Karen Putz, author of a new book on the topic.
“My life changed dramatically when I began focusing on bringing passion and joy into my life,” she says.
Karen, who was born with “normal” hearing, became hard-of-hearing after getting sick in elementary school and severely deaf at age 19 after tripping over a wake while barefoot water skiing.
“I spent many, many years hiding my hearing aid,” she says. “It wasn’t until I became deaf as a teen that I began to embrace a whole new different way to live.”
