You Can Create An Exceptional Life – by Louise Hay and Cheryl Richardson

Grab hold of this wonderful little book and prepare to spend time with two delightful people as they share their hearts and souls with each other and us.  The  give and take between two professionals demonstrates how we can help others and ourselves move toward emotional and spiritual well-being through the use of affirmations.  Ultimately, they are teaching us ways to improve our relationship with ourselves.  For learning to love and appreciate ourselves opens the door to others – including those we think we dislike.

It was so nice to read about other folks that talk to themselves, their cars and the mirror.  Louise Hay shares many of her affirmations she uses in her life in order to show Cheryl how to get a hold on her life.  She is the perfect example of how affirmations change the tones you hear and speak by speaking positively of herself and her world.  As she stated, “if people get a hold of their day, they get a hold of their life”.  Wonderfully said.  And the unique way Cheryl tells their story gives the examples root to grow in your own garden of life.

This should be in your home and/or office library – available to remind you of how much you love yourself.  Read the book, practice self-care, and learn the joy of loving yourself.

Full Disclosure –  As a volunteer reviewer for Hay House, I was provided a copy at no cost, but my reviews are not for sale.  You can trust that what I wrote is how I feel after having read the entire book.

“Wishes – for a Mother’s Heart”

“Wishes – for a Mother’s Heart”   Hay House Publishing Co.

ISBN# 978-1-4019-3534-4  by Tricia LaVoice and Barbara Lazaroff


From “The Beauty of A Dandelion”, to “Honor”,  Tricia LaVoice has For You, a Wish  Each Wish is unique and each wish speaks to you.  Co-author Barbara Lazaroff then writes of experiences and people she’s known that match the wish and pr0vides words and actions one might take for guidance and solace.  With the beauty and sensitivity of the book, it’s no surprise this is another Hay House publication.

These two women have found a way to share their experiences and knowledge in a beautiful way.  The stories and guidance’s touch on a wide range of life experiences and could be the perfect gift for the women you know struggling with life’s’ challenges.

Of all the stories and ideas, for me, the best was the Wish “For Your Eternal Mother”.   Start your morning by sending someone a simple”Wish of the Day”.  It does not have to be poetic – just thoughtful. And how fun would that be to receive a thought each morning from someone special in your life?

Pick up several copies of the book – one for yourself for that somber day and a few more for women in need.  It’s full of wishes that could come true.
