I wrote a book! Well, we wrote a book but it's pretty exciting don't you think? My co author Sheila is academic and wouldn't let me be my brief and ridiculously pointed self. Without her this would never have come to being!
She asked me great questions and edited and added and pushed this book forward. It's called Love The One You Are (With) and it explores and explains the concept of gratitude. It's also a journal - full of prompts and ideas to get you reflecting deeply about where you can find and appreciate joy and your life. There is science stuff, and touchy feely stuff and everything in between. Your thinking will evolve as you work through the book. Writing it helped our thinking develop!
Learning to love the one you are and the animal companions and partners that are part of your journey is a huge part of becoming successful - and feeling worthwhile.
Finding the joy in things when days are dark and difficult is not always easy. Appreciating the horse who decides to find monsters in the arena or the dog who is too reactive to have off leash around people or dogs is challenging, at times it seems impossible.
We so very much hope you enjoy the book, are inspired by it and leave it feeling good about yourself, today and the future. I hope many readers share their favourite pages and prompts completed with us.
We wanted to keep it accessible and easy so decided to go with online publishing ... it's a PDF and buying a copy gives you the right to download it for your use and print one copy - if you love it and you want to share it with a friend please buy another copy so we can keep doing projects like this.
As a special bonus we have a closed Facebook community group that purchasers of the book can join to share their journey - get inspiration, discuss challenging questions, reflect on your thinking - whatever the book inspires!
