Author Lorrie Forde invites you to break all the old rules about not writing in books—this one is yours to write in, reflect back on, and share as you choose. Make it work for you! This is not another thing to add to your ‘to-do’ list. Let the pages do the work and before you know it, you’ll be laughing with friends, reconnecting with your passion, and the envy of your peers as you figure out what ‘feeds you’ and where your ‘weak spots’ are. How long will it take till you’re using “F” words all the time and your cookie jar is overflowing? Analogies like this cookie jar and using really good “F” words help us to laugh at reality and a little laughter really can make all the difference.
That title got your attention didn’t it? In this case, the “F” words are good ones.The author does a wonderful job of showing how important, and easy, it is to be happier. Not only is this a self-help book, it’s also a workbook where you can write (gasp!) in the book to keep track of your progress. I had the PDF version and transferred it to my Kindle, so I used a piece of paper. Good thing since I don’t know if I could have written in the book.
There are many different ways in the book to help you become more fulfilled, one of which is to join or start a support group that focuses on being positive.
I think this is a great book for anyone who wants to be more content with their life. With the author guiding you in this journey, it’s like having your own personal self-help coach.
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who wants to work on making you a priority in your life, and being a more content person.
During a twenty-five year career in post-secondary education and through her work as a professional Executive and Life Coach, Lorrie has gathered the research and the tools she needed to bring this book to life. “I believe everyone deserves to have a coach and this book was a way for me to make that possible. I invite my readers to have fun with the process and to trust that their answers will come—they always do.” Lorrie loves to fill her days with adventure and laughter. She enjoys her work and says, “I work hard but I work to live—I don’t live to work.”
