About the Author

This book motivated me to become more present with those around me and less focused on all the things that don’t matter. My relationships with others, especially loved ones, should always come first. I’ve read this book TWICE (because the reminder is one that I can never get enough of) and have also recommended it to friends. It deserves all five stars (and more!). I’ve included a couple sample pages that really spoke to me.
My days were frenetic activity, the hours growing shorter and the years left with my children at home flying past me so fast I couldn't keep up with tearing the months' pages off the calendar.
I wanted to get off this highway. I wanted the side road—the one with the surprise of a fruit stand or a long forgotten picnic table spotted off in the shade of a Weeping Willow. But things felt too deep for me to even think I had a chance at a new life for us.
In 2012, I discovered Rachel Macy Stafford online from a friend's suggestion. Her blog, Hands Free Revolution, has held my hand ever since. Rachel reminds me that no matter how overwhelmed I feel today, I can bring myself peace with rest, direction, and a new chance tomorrow. I can make mistakes and start over. I can learn to love more and I will start with myself.
This is why today, I am celebrating the release of Rachel Macy Stafford's book, Hand Free Life.
It's for anyone who has gone to bed at night, feeling the weight of failure.
It's for all of us who begin out day already feeling defeated.
If you are the way I am, then you know what I mean when I say that disappointment in ourselves hurts far more than from anyone else.
If you set expectations for yourself that you'd never set for anyone else.
If you're harder on yourself than you would be to a friend.
This is the book for you, no matter who you are. It is impossible to walk away unaffected from Rachel's searing truth and invitation, to start over. It's never too late to do life with more love.
I felt like Ebeneezer Scrooge, so incredibly grateful that I hadn't missed it, that it wasn't too late. I keep this book in my purse, just in case I need a kind, nonjudgemental reminder. Get the book. It's a game changer.
Top international reviews
The habits discussed in the book more or less boil down to 1) get off your phone and the Internet and engage in real life instead, 2) take time to really listen to your children, 3) establish some solid boundaries.
A lot of bloggers have been releasing these sorts of books over the past couple of years and I have read several. This one in solidly in the middle of the pack.
I wasn't really expecting anything when I picked this one up, but the way the author delivers the content is just so messy, making one detour after another, failing to make a point with most of them...
The content of the book could've been summarized in a bullet point list, and the remaining 99.5% of the book is just personal anecdotes and feel-good stories about noticing the clouds or listening to the heartbeat of your child.
One thing is for sure, I was NOT this book's target audience.
This book was filled with good ideas to live an, in the moment life. To stop and smell the roses so to say. Switch off distractions and listen.
Some of the things she does I have tried to add into my life. Being in the moment isn't easy and this book needs to be read more than once to implement it into you day to day life
Rachel Stacy Maccaford est alors une alliée puissante pour vous rappeler qu'il y a plus que ça dans une vie, et que la perfection n'est pas synonyme d'une vie bien vécue et que peu importe le passé, on peut toujours commencer un nouveau chemin.
