Gosselin recounts how her expectations were creating her reality and how we're all doing that every day. Once she realized that she was programming her mind with her "words" or "feelings" every morning, she learned to correct the negative programs she was running in order to lead a more happy, healthy and fulfilling life.
"Don't live as if the present is the past," she writes. Instead, check in with yourself every morning, asking "How do I feel?" Then she explains how to follow the feeling to its root - usually in childhood to the first time you felt this way. Once you become aware how your brain was "wired" early in childhood and became addicted to certain feelings, you can then choose a better feeling and change your words. Doing this every day for 28 days will rewire your brain, explains Gosselin, so it's a good daily practice.
Taking Gosselin's journey with her as she discovers why she is unhappy, or always feels second-best, and then dramatically changes her life by processing her own feelings, is very inspirational and can guide anyone along the same beautiful path.
Becca Chopra, author of The Chakra Diaries
This book deeply resonated with me and it perfectly described what I was feeling.
I never thought there was a way to change, or release that negative gut feeling that was lingering in the background so often. Lori describes her own journey, which is a great read in itself and at the same time she gives you a step by step technique of dealing with these negative feelings, so you can accurately pinpoint where they started and how you can release them. Following the steps gets easier and easier as you apply them, also totally want to go and book a flight to Greece now :-)
