I’m so delighted to announce that The Flourish Formula hit Amazon Best Seller Status in 3 Categories: Meditation, Time-Management and Life Skills. 

If you missed the virtual book release party you can watch the recording here. It includes a super-lively Q & A session plus a reading from the book and a couple of reveals from me (including some new openings on my calendar for you to sign up for a complimentary hour-long discovery session: a no obligations call where you can get a taste of coaching, find some relief on a current challenge, and learn more about my Flourish 8 step coaching program. These tend to go fast so if you are interested I’d encourage you to grab one today.)

So what are the next steps for the book? And when can you get your hands on a hard copy?

Our introductory free period is over but you can get your Kindle version of the book on Amazon for $9.97. Here is the link to purchase.

(I’m looooving the opportunity to hear your feedback. Once you have had a chance to read the book I hope you will share a review on Amazon to help others decide if it is a good fit for them.)

We will have the print version available in the new year — so look for info on pre-ordering your print copy soon!

But here is what I want to talk to you about today….

How do you come down from a big goal or accomplishment?

I used to sort of hurl myself toward a big milestone and feel like I landed hard, kersplat, once the event/presentation/deadline was over.

I’m learning how to pace myself along the way and build in recovery days after a big push. (This is something I talk about more in Step “S” of the Flourish Formula, or “Scheduling Your Own Flourish Calendar.)

And no that doesn’t mean I’m always zen or even relaxed on these recovery days or any other day for that matter. But it does mean I’m not on my computer. And instead I’m outexperiencing life and making space for any fatigue and otherwise letting myself click into that lower gear.

So this week I’ve been taking a lot of time to relax and celebrate, including: 

Long walks with my husband by the lake.

A cappacino in my favorite colonial-era mansion turned restaurant.

And yesterday, in arguably the most fun day I’ve had since we moved here, wandering around the cemetery with my youngest taking in the sights and sounds of the All Souls/Day of the Dead Celebration, Nica-Style.

I’ve tucked in some photos from these adventures below. I share more about them via social media, especially my brand new author FB page and on Instagram, and I’d love to connect with you there! And to hear how you manage to come down after a big stretch.

Love and all the good,
