Where are you on your priority list? A key question in measuring self-care. Uncover your own customized strategies for moving further up that list as you bring this thought provoking and interactive book to life around your own kitchen table. Connect with friends and get your sense of self back with doable self-care strategies. Author Lorrie Forde invites you to break all the old rules about not writing in books—this one is yours to write in, reflect back on, and share as you choose. Make it work for you!

This is not another thing to add to your ‘to-do’ list. Let the pages do the work and before you know it, you’ll be laughing with friends, reconnecting with your passion, and the envy of your peers as you figure out what ‘feeds you’ and where your ‘weak spots’ are. How long will it take till you’re using “F” words all the time and your cookie jar is overflowing? Analogies like this cookie jar and using really good “F” words help us to laugh at reality and a little laughter really can make all the difference.

Meet the author:

Lorrie Forde is a daughter, a mother, a sister, a grandma, and a friend. She learned the hard way that balance is her secret ingredient in the analogy of a full and healthy ‘cookie jar’.

During a twenty-five year career in post-secondary education and through her work as a professional Executive and Life Coach, Lorrie has gathered the research and the tools she needed to bring this book to life. “I believe everyone deserves to have a coach and this book was a way for me to make that possible. I invite my readers to have fun with the process and to trust that their answers will come—they always do.” Lorrie loves to fill her days with adventure and laughter. She enjoys her work and says, “I work hard but I work to live—I don’t live to work.”

Personal Opinion:

First of all its not a typical self help that one comes across. The book encourages its audience to think about what they want and need from others as well as how they can succeed at making their dreams come true. The audience is also encouraged to write down in the book. I'm not sure why the book didn't really grab me as I hoped it would; maybe it might have been the wrong time, maybe I'm not ready for it, or perhaps I'm kind of closed to the advice. I hope to re-read it in a few months, and perhaps I'll have a different reaction to it.

  1. Thanks for the review and I look forward to hearing how you make out with it when you pick it up again in a few months. Really Good F Words does require that you're ready to take action on moving in the direction of your own goals and self-care strategies so being in a place that matches that is important. As is the case with any coachlike questions and conversations (which Really Good F Words is full of) it is as though seeds are planted and it is after the conversation when those seeds germinate and sprout new ideas and perspectives. Your subconscious will continue to consider the questions in search of your own best answers long after you put the book down. So....you may discover that the next time you pick up the book the questions will make that much more sense and your answers will show up easily. :)
