Note to Self – A Seven-Step Path to Gratitude and Growth
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 role 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!
NOTE TO SELF is an Idaho Author Award winner for inspiration.
About Laurie Buchanan (Boise, Idaho Author)
Board Certified with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, I’m a holistic health practitioner, transformational life coach, speaker, and author.
With tremendous respect for the earth’s natural resources, my goal is to leave the slightest footprint on the planet, while at the same time making a lasting impression on its inhabitants—one that’s positive, uplifting, constructive, and healing.
A cross between Dr. Dolittle, Nanny McPhee, and a Type-A Buddhist, I’m an active listener, observer of details, payer of attention, reader and writer of books, kindness enthusiast, and unabashed optimist.
I enjoy yoga, long walks, bicycling, and photographing the great outdoors. I love laughter, red licorice, and all things Idaho. A minimalist by intent, I live a beautiful life with fewer things—simple, yet full.
