Life is Too Short Collection

Are you looking for a fabulous life boost today?

The Life is Too Short series is just what you need. Written by Connie Sokol—mother of seven, author, speaker, and amazing matching sock finder—these humorous self-development columns give you just the right amount of fun and functional.

Originally written for a major newspaper and magazines, you can now enjoy the entire collection in one book.

Put your feet up and laugh as you relate to time-tested tips on being a woman, wife, and mother. You'll learn the cozy stuff of how to adjust expectations, have faith in your dreams, and lighten up in motherhood. And, you'll learn a few life skills such as easy spring cleaning, simplifying the holidays, and creating successful goals.
It's the perfect gift for any woman!

Short, funny, insightful, these quick power columns are ideal anytime, anywhere, to rejuvenate your mind and soul.

For some laughter therapy read this book!

I LOVED the funny stories in each chapter followed by a LIFE TIP to help you put into practice the things you just learned...and as an added bonus...there is a BOOK PICK to further your enlightenment on the subject.

Author Connie Sokol
Connie Sokol is a mother of seven, a national and local presenter, and a regular speaker at Education Week. She is a monthly contributor on KSL TV “Studio 5,” and regular blogger for KSL "Motherhood Matters." She is a former TV and radio host for Bonneville Communications, and columnist for Deseret News and Utah Valley Magazine. Mrs. Sokol is the author of several books including the award-nominated romance Caribbean Crossroads, the 8-week Challenge program of Faithful, Fit & Fabulous, Life is Too Short for One Hair Color Series, as well as talk CDs and podcasts. Mrs. Sokol marinates in time spent with her family and eating decadent treats.

My Review:

"Forgive. Anger and resentment - even when justified - suppress our natural joy and motivation to live, love, and do. So in the end, we only rob ourselves, clinging to this heavy load that becomes an obstacle to our joy. But forgiving isn't about being unwise. If someone has done something horrible to you and obviously has not changed, you don't go asking for trouble."

"Find your unique self and share it. Too often women lose a sense of self, then become resentful that their family only sees them as the errand do-er or the go-to-gal." 

"So what would help us smile, get the joy back, and feel juiced about life as a woman, wife, and mother?"

"Be yourself, be your best self. Why are we women so consumed with looking sideways for approval?"

I wanted to begin my review with a few quotes, and these are only a few lines that you will find in the beginning of the book, yet they all tell a story. It is about finding out who you are and living up to your potential. 

Connie Sokol's books are inspiring to all women. She is so on the mark when she says Life is too short. This book is inundated with short stories and quotes that each reader will find uplifting and inspiring. Readers will come away with  a plan, a goal, an example, to inspire a new beginning each day. Some people are blessed with wisdom and when they are, they are inspired to share that wisdom with others; and Connie does it in an exemplary fashion.

I highly recommend this book if you are looking to be inspired.
