Even if you’re not in the middle of a crisis right now, you might know someone who is. Like it or not, we’re all thrown into crisis eventually. Personally, I’ve spent the last 6 months or so successfully navigating my way out of quarter life crisis number 17 (kidding (not really)). I might have made it out of the woods sooner had I had this amazing book.
In this inspirational new book, Laura Day identifies crisis as the most authentic version of self-transformation. She identifies several ‘crisis types’ – those who respond to crisis with denial, anxiety, rage or depression – and tells readers how to rethink each response. She gives practical and personalized tools for turning our darkest times into life’s greatest gift. As Laura Day says, rock bottom can be the best place to start.
I pulled a bunch of inspiring true-isms out of this book, which you saw if you follow me on Twitter, and I thought of at least three or four people I know who would really benefit from reading this book with healing in mind. It’s easy to get stuck in crisis mode, however you cope with it, and Laura Day gives you the tools and permission you need to move on and emerge with a fresh perspective. Crisis doesn’t have to be purely negative whether you’re dealing with chronic illness, the loss of a loved one, a tough childhood, or a lost job; you can come away stronger and more resilient if you keep an open mind.
