It’s almost here!

You guys, my illustrated creative journal, Find Your Awesome: A 30-Day Challenge to Fall in Love with Your  Playful, Imaginative, & Colorful self, comes out next month.

Next month!

I’m very excited. In fact, this illustration (from the book) looks just like me right now.

The book is divided into 30 days. Each day, I suggest a self-loving theme, and a way to bring that theme to life. Some of the activities are light and playful, others are more thought-provoking, but all of them are designed to be easily incorporated into your day.  Here’s an excerpt…

Day 8: Be Openly Magnificent

Today, instead of trying to fit in, instead of making yourself small so that others feel big, instead of being quiet and polite and perfectly acceptable, be openly magnificent.

Shine. Laugh loud and belly-deep. Be the center of attention. Flaunt your intelligence, your humor, your absolute grasp of the situation. Strut. Take up space – meaningfully, beautifully, unapologetically. Move to your own music. Sway. Shimmy. Twirl. Own your opinions, your mistakes, and your triumphs. Be fearlessly loving and unabashedly you.

Today, live your life like you mean it. Then tomorrow, do it again. And the next day, and the next day, and the next day…

And while you’re at it, use the next page to make a list of your superpowers – the things that others look to you for, the things that come so naturally to you, you surprise yourself sometimes.

I’ll be posting more about FIND YOUR AWESOME in the weeks ahead. Meanwhile, it’s available for pre-order now! It’s received some truly lovely comments on Goodreads, and was wonderfully reviewed by Nikki from Flying Through Water.

I’m very excited and can’t wait for you all to see it.

Stay tuned!
