Note to Self: A Seven-Step Path to Gratitude and Growth

Book Cover

Baggage! We all carry it with us through life. It comes in a wide variety of styles, shapes, and colors; and no matter how we dress it up, it’s frustrating, inconvenient, and slows us down. In fact, it’s downright disruptive.

Note to Self: A Seven-Step Path to Gratitude and Growth is about offloading emotional baggage—something that’s especially important when we realize that we don’t just pack for one; we pack for seven of our selves—self-preservation, self-gratification, self-definition, self-acceptance, self-expression, self-reflection, and self-knowledge. Each plays a vital rose in harmony, overall health, and well-being.

Chock full of real-life emotional examples, as well as “keys” at the end of each chapter offering actionable tips to help you offload it permanently,Note to Self will help you discover a lighter, joy-filled you!

Although Note to Self  is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for pre-order, Note to Self  actually hits the shelves November 1. I start my book tour shortly after that with stops on both coasts and at least one in the great Chicagoland area that I called home for over 20 years.

I can be found online at Tuesdays With LaurieTwitterFacebookGoogle+, and LinkedIn. I look forward to connecting with you.

October and New Beginnings…

“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” ~ Rumi

October vignette

September saw the start of some new paths and projects for me. For years I had dreamed of following a certain professional path only to be met with roadblocks out of my control, total frustration and then acceptance that perhaps things just weren’t meant to be. It’s odd how just when you least expect it, an opportunity presents itself that opens doors you once thought were closed to you. Over the next few months I will be working hard to make sure that door stays open…stay tuned for more news.

“It might take a year it might take a day but what’s meant to be will always find its way.” ~Unknown

Wherever you may be in your day or evening, I hope you’re making your fondest dreams a reality!  🙂
Live, laugh & love! ❤

“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.” ~ Rumi
