'Stocks, Bonds, and Soccer Moms' gives us a resource, a place to come to revitalize our lives when the stress becomes too much. It is not a book to be read just once, it is a book to come back to, to remind us how we can change a few things to make our lives a little less stressful. I am a grandmother now, how I wish I had a book like this back in my day. But, as the author suggests, I can pass on her suggestions to my daughters and grandchildren. Even though this book is directed towards women, I think men can find themselves in the same spot, stressed beyond belief. I have a son, and think he might benefit from some of these suggestions.
We all need balance in our lives, and it is so easy to get stuck in the same rut, day after day, feeling alone, stress mounting, and trying to be all things to all people. As Michelle Perry Higgins learned, this is impossible. She is not the perfect woman she wanted to be, and her marriage and life were suffering. She did something about this, and has shared her wisdom with us. Her personal time and romance were things of the past. She learned how to set boundaries, how to ask for help, and, that is the last thing most people want to do. Her list of seven steps will help you begin to live in balance, instead of out of balance. This is my interpretation of the author's advice. Read the book for the full gamut of specifications.
1. Good enough concept, not perfect- accept you are good enough and never will be perfect.
2. Toxic friendships- eliminate those people who bring you down and learn how to deal with them.
3. Create a teamwork with family, children- everyone in the family can and should have some responsibilities.
4. Me time, family time, girlfriend time- take time for yourself, or to be with friends to replenish your energy
5. Keep the romance alive- advice from a psychologist, Dr. Nanette Rowe, on how to manage romance.
6. Staying financially fit- for many this may be difficult, but follow the author's suggestions.
7. Pay attention to the little things your children say and do-pass the balance- really listen to your children, do things together as a family, and most importantly, pass the balance in life you find to your children.
It is so easy for all of us to get lost in our daily lives, we let things go, and plan on getting organized soon. Now is the time to learn to live within ourselves. Good Luck. Note: this book was given to me to read and review.

conquer all in every area of their lives." I have always set the bar so high for myself and would feel bad when I wouldn't shine at every single area. I can totally relate to Mrs. Higgins in just about every aspect. If you would look at my Facebook page, you would see that it is chock-full of supermoms who eventually break because they can not handle consistent perfection and tend to use this media as a sounding board. I definitely shared this book with these ladies. I do suggest this book to any mom who is trying to be the best she can.
My favorite chapter is Chapter 3 Create The Team With Family and Friends. This shows how to ask others for help and work with you and not trying to do it all yourself (This is just what has helped me the most, yet everything in this book I found very helpful as well).
Following her suggestions in this special chapter 3 are time-saving and moreover LIFESAVING!
If you just buy one helpful book this holiday season for yourself or another, this is the one to buy!
Highly, highly recommend this book to women and men can benefit from it as well!
