I met Maureen at the Redefining Your Future seminar on JBLM in WA. She spoke to these young women who have served our country proudly and with a lot of sacrifice. They are preparing to go out into the civilian work and play life and Maureen offers insight.
this person came to an well-to-do suburb of Seattle when she was a very young person. She grew up through elementary, junior high, and high school as an upper-middle-class person. In an area that was incredibly ethincally diverse, well rounded, and accepting of minorities of over 50 different countries and cultures around the world.
I write this, and claim "hardships", and "ethnic struggles", and all the rest - when in fact her upbringing was the type of priviledged and non-threatening, safe ubringing that 95% of the world's children will NEVER enjoy, no matter what country they're from, simply to have a spin to publish a book.... the dishonesty is galling.
Further, she went to a college that is over $35,000 per year. and she didn't pay a penny of it the entire time. She went to a university for the priviledged and had her whole way paid by her upper middle class family. Same when she went off to work.
Again, the hardships articulated in this piece of FICTION are laughable. We should all enjoy the "hardships" she had to put up with.
And, the love life stuff? It's pretty well known this woman cheated on everyone that loved her.
I think this is a travesty. It's criminal. It's disgusting. And it's pure, enequivocable fiction.
While some of the tips seem like common sense, it is easy to lose sight of these ideas if one is dealing with an overwhelming sense of defeat or depression. Although this book strongly advocates perseverance and hardwork, it does include a story on disappointment. Additionally, Chapter Eight is titled "Physical and Mental Health 101" that includes tips and stories on the importance of living healthy - both physically and mentally.
Because the stories shared in this book are so personal and give us an insight on the author's life as well as others, I would have enjoyed it if Ms. Francisco included some photos of herself and the other individuals she speaks of throughout her book. Maybe in the second edition of the book? :)
Overall, I enjoyed this book and with it being a New Year will incorporate many of these tips in my Action Plan for 2013.
