Dear Friends,

Have you ever found yourself asking, Is this all there is?


Whether you are trying to lose weight, gain deeper relationships with others, experience something more meaningful with your life, or you just really want to stop stalling and chase after your dreams, I can relate.

Like you, I've found myself frustrated by the way that I knew what I was supposed to do every time I had a great idea, I just sometimes lacked the self-trust and support that I needed to actually follow through.

I wrote this book as a guide to tune into your own spirit for the encouragement that you need to finally listen to your instincts.  Honestly, I wrote this book for me, so that I would have a reminder to hold in my hand when I've forgotten my way through something, or things feel dark, or when the chaos of the outside world is muffling my own inner-wisdom. Only you know the innermost secrets of how you stay motivated, or the beliefs that keep you stuck, or how you seem to find a way to self sabotage your results. But we aren't that different, and I bet what reminds me to stay on track will also help to remind you too.

I am here solely as your encourager.  I know that our problems can feel so complicated and all-consuming when we spend too much time thinking about them in our own heads. I want to hold your hand and help walk you through whatever challenges you have right now. I want to be just like your big sister and refresh those memories that you have by reminding you to count on your instinct for the perfect answers.

You are intelligent. You are creative.  You are unique.

You deserve everything amazing that you can imagine for yourself.

I want to remind you about the things that you already know, but sometimes forget.  I want to take this opportunity to share with you some life lessons, struggles, and personal stories that will help you to create your own happiness, calmness, and unshakeable self-worth.

I'm so happy to share this book with you.  At the end of reading, I want you to sit back and feel that this book is like coming home.  I want you to consider it like spending time with an old friend, familiar and comforting, and leave you with a renewed sense of self and fresh outlook.

I want you to read this book, exhale, and then go do all of the amazing, wonderful, purposeful things that make you come alive.
