Short, funny, insightful, these quick power columns are ideal anytime, anywhere, to rejuvenate your mind and soul.
If your spirits are down, if you need a good laugh, or just a good dose of therapy, this book is a must read. I laughed until my sides hurt at the many hilarious, real-life experiences Connie shares as she offers women a healthy reality-check.
Here are some of my favorite lines and titles:
"Superwoman needs to hit hyperspace."
"Therapy by Harry!" (Yes, as in Harry Potter.)
"It's time to squeeze the guilt sponge and let the guilt drain out."
Love is Like a Leaky Faucet
Stop Being a Bossy Pants
As women we tend to push ourselves harder than anyone else we know, but The Life is Too Short Collection invites us to take a step back and look at life's bigger picture. The messages in this collection will make you think about your own life and learn, as Connie's often humorous, often exasperating experiences show, to not take yourself, or life too seriously.
I love how each section is only a couple pages long. Even on the most hectic days, I can find a moment to get a dose of laughter and heart that bolsters my confidence and strength to face the day while improving my self-worth and relationships with others a little at a time. What could be better? I definitely agree this is a great gift for any woman in your life who feels overwhelmed, including you. Mother's Day shopping, done!
