And THEN I'll Be Happy!: Stop Sabotaging Your Happiness And Put Your Own Life First Paperback – December 22, 2009
|New from||Used from|
“Any woman who wants to find out how she may be sabotaging her happiness needs this book!”
―Carolyn Chambers Clark, Ed.D., author of Living Well with Anxiety and Living Well with Menopause
“Remember Goldilocks and the Three Bears? Nothing was ever good enough for that girl! A master observer of women and relationships, Kristen Houghton uses her funny, warm, and deeply engaging style to open us up to the ways that we, as women, chronically postpone and deny our own happiness. As a clinical psychologist, I constantly see women in states of depression, low self-esteem, and body hatred. I am grateful to Kristen, who masterfully gets past our defensiveness to show us new ways to discover self-acceptance, inner peace and happiness. Thank you, Kristen, for your groundbreaking book. It’s about time someone addressed the concerns felt deeply in our hearts and showed us innovative, insightful ways to heal them! This book is a must read for any woman who puts herself last on her exhaustive ‘to do’ list.”
―Maria Rago, PhD, Clinical Director, Rago & Associates Counseling Center; psychological consultant for women’s issues
“Kristen Houghton is truly an inspiring writer, one whose ‘girlfriend therapy’ is the best kind of advice any woman can receive. She is candid, up-to-the minute on what today’s woman needs, and spices up her prose with a humor we can all use in our lives. Her writing is unparalleled in this arena, and her advice motivates her readers. All women need to read this book, and read it now! It is fresh, and filled with solid advice for anyone who has, as Kristen Houghton so perfectly writes, found happiness to be elusive in their lives.”
―Diane Lang, MSW, adjunct professor of psychology, Montclair State University; therapist, Livingston Institute of Psychology; author of Baby Steps: The Path from Motherhood to Career
“Kristen Houghton’s writing thrives as she creates compelling articles for her nationally syndicated Relationship column. Her insight into relationship problems and their solutions is brilliant! Humorous, realistic, and right on the mark, she is the best relationship writer out there.”
―Greg Archer, San Francisco Examiner
“Kristen’s heartfelt perspectives are seasoned with frankness and wisdom, yet are boldly refreshing. Her advice, when heeded, will help you revive a relationship, reinvent your life, and make positive changes! This book on women and happiness is one I recommend wholeheartedly. It is an insightful, wonderful dose of reality. Great writing!”
―Bill Mitchell, the 7 Day Detective, author of The More You Know: Getting the Evidence and Support You Need to Investigate a Troubled Relationship
“With a sharp, witty persona, Kristen Houghton tackles relationship building with humor. Her material is at times eye-popping, getting her message and guidance across with a juicy tone that garners attention. I suspect we’ll be hearing a lot from her in 2009 as we all battle the recession, try to keep a handle on our relationships, and attempt to keep a smile on our faces.”
―Judy Martin, Emmy–award winning broadcast journalist, reporter for National Public Radio; writer/radio anchor at CNBC Radio
“Kristen Houghton is a brilliant writer who always writes timely and informative features. I look forward to reading her column on a daily basis―I never know what the articles are going to be about, but I know I can always expect a clever and entertaining story written by an expert in the field. Writing a book that encourages women to attain their goals and find their own happiness was the next logical step for Kristen. Her book is a definite must read!”
―Danielle Duff, columnist, Washington Examiner
From the Author
While writing this book, I felt a tremendous link not only to the women I interviewed for it, but also to the millions of women worldwide whose lives consist of one sacrifice after another for other people. We are incredible and strong but we need to focus on our own lives as priority number one. If I can get only one message across to all these women this would be it: Stop sabotaging your happiness and put your own life first!
I have kept in touch with the women who were kind enough and brave enough to share their stories with my readers. The positive changes they made are inspiring to me. A successful life is measured not by depleting your own resources and living only for others, but by cherishing yourself as a person and living life on your own terms.
I hope that this book allows you to see that any type of positive change must begin with you alone and that putting your own goals and dreams first is not selfish.You are worthy of living the kind of life you want to live. That is being a successful woman.
All happiness always in all ways!
