Written by a woman, a mother, a professional, this book truly spoke to my heart! Stefani is genuine, honest, and spoke of her experiences, emotions, and struggles in vulnerable way that made it easy for me to relate. This book is a must read for women who are raising babies and businesses. Women who aim to do it all and do it really well, every moment of every day.
Stefani debunks our need to keep it perfect, calls out the ugly parts of a woman’s journey in life as a mother, a wife, a friend, and a professional. I genuinely appreciate how she verbalized for me how she thought that when she accomplished the different milestones of gaining her degree, getting married, having a baby, she would have felt fulfilled. But she didn’t, and many women don’t. She beautifully identifies that the reason for this is because we are not being true to our hearts and we have spent a huge part of our lives, time, energy and thoughts trying to live up to standards that were not truly created by our hearts.
As a Child and Adolescent Psychologist and mother of 3, it felt as though that Stefani has been on my life journey with me. She eloquently describes her emotional experiences and offers suggestions and exercises to help you re-connect with you.
I strongly recommend this book to any woman who can’t answer the question, “Who Am I?” or “What do I want in my life?” Whether as a result of divorce, a growing sense of dissatisfaction, or feeling lost by the roles we feel like we need to take on to be a “good (insert role here)”.
Well done, Stefani! And thank you for putting into words all of the feelings that we women have but feel ashamed or embarrassed to have.
