Finally, a self-help book that actually helps you conquer your fears; manage your stress, anxiety, and depression; and find the humor in your life’s challenges! With this book, you will learn that: •Mastering the constant fear of not being good enough is possible, •You have the power within you to change your life, •Love does not have to be painful, and •Your world can be as safe as you wish it to be. With this book, you will learn the answers to questions like:•Why is it important to allow myself to feel the full spectrum of emotion, and not bury or repress anything I experience?•How does ignoring or burying my emotions create physical dis-ease in my body?•How does my willingness to grow and change affect my satisfaction in life?•How do I be clear in my intentions, and create relationships that fulfill me?•How do I keep that ‘courtship feeling’ alive in my personal life?•Why are boundaries in a relationship important, and how do I define them?•What are the practical steps I can take if I am grieving for a lost loved one?•How does creating a loss history help me through the stages of grief?•What is the value of ‘anticipatory grieving,’ and how do I recreate special events without loved ones?•Where am I on the evolution of parenting?•How do I create quality time for each member of my family?•How does social media affect the quality of my relationships with family and friends?•What is the best way to co-parent children after a divorce?•How do my genetic programming and belief systems affect every part of my life?You will be reminded of why the most important opportunity we have in life is learning who we are and integrating all aspects of our brain, mind, body, and spirit. Every day presents us with a new possibility and a probability based on our beliefs, whether our thoughts are positive or negative, and our willingness to explore every emotion we experience to the fullest extent possible. It is only through self-reflection harnessing the power of prayer, meditation, visualization, and listening to our own inner voice that we truly begin to grow through our human experience.If you wish your life to be different, then you have to start thinking and doing things differently. Major changes come when you begin to see your life from a different perspective.My hope for you is that you will find something in this book that speaks to you in a personal way, and is helpful in your own emotional and spiritual growth. It is not as important that you agree with what I say. What is important for you to consider is what you ‘feel’ in response to what I say. That is where your real growth will be experienced.Author BioLeigh Smith is a therapist in private practice, author, songwriter, avid photographer, Viet Nam veteran, 1st degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and certified scuba Dive Master.

Each section can take a minute or a little more to read which is perfect in this world of diminishing attention spans. Smith, the author, has extensive experience working with people. Smith tends to give examples from real life therapy sessions, making it more than just a how to book. By doing this, he brings in the raw emotions for difficult topics like stress, beliefs, parenting, bereavement and even relationships. It gets real, very quickly.Smith breaks down topics into what drives emotions and how to work with those emotions depending on the situation. Some were simple actions to take, some more complex. It’s a lot for a short book, but it works. The book is written so you do not need to read through the whole book at one time.”
