I didn’t want any mother or parent to feel alone when the shitstorm hits. That is why I wrote this book. Because, despite how much we curate our lives, the storms are going to come! Some days will be harder than others where you will be pushed well beyond your limits. I’ve been there and it truly feels awful.
Here are some thoughts or “Mindi-isms” 😆 that came out of my memoir: ✖️ Modern Motherhood: if you’re not going crazy, you’re probably not doing it right. ✖️ Crazy is a spectrum and we all fall somewhere on it - some of us are just better at hiding it than others (thanks to social media). ✖️ Anxiety, depression, SHAME, guilt, fear, grief, frustration and even numbness are symptoms of being a HUMAN BEING not being a failure. ✖️ In a world of filters, fakers and frauds, we are crying out for authenticity like never before.
Fun fact! Amazon actually makes you set a minimum cost when self-publishing so I made it like $3 or thereabouts because I want everyone to be able to afford to read it. I’m trying to work out how I can actually offer it for free! If you got any ideas, hit me up!
This book is really about getting the message out there that YOU 👏🏼 ARE 👏🏼 NOT 👏🏼 ALONE 👏🏼 and not only can you recover from whatever broke you, but you can go on to thrive in life! Don’t give up! Keep on keeping on.
So. Take a deep breath. One day, your sorrow will turn into a story of help, hope and healing that’ll impact someone else. Until then, hang in there and remember that this too shall pass *HUG* ♥️♥️♥️
