I almost didn't write this book, that was originally published as "99 Things Women Wish They Knew Before Saying 'I Do.'" The publisher wanted me to fit her series and I was not sure I wanted to and I did not want to do the work of distilling what I knew women needed to know.
Then a friend said, "We'll help you." and I realized that I could ask other women, lots of them, to answer my basic question.
Actually, there were two questions: "Have you ever been married?" and, if the answer was yes, "What do you wish you had known before you got married?"
I had a wonderful time doing the research. I asked the question wherever I was–in the locker room at the Y, in a sewing circle, waiting in line at the post office–you get the idea. The discussions were incredible.
On line answers came from 8 different countries, and the resulting distillation of information provided women with information they really needed. The reviews were great.
Read it, enjoy–and learn!

It is normal to wonder if you are normal. Whether it makes sense or not, we tend to see if we are like other people. We want to fit in and be accepted.
It's important to balance this wish with the understanding that there are so many extra forces pushing you to pay attention to what others are doing and to try to fit in, that it's way too easy to lose your connection with who you are and what is right for you.
You need to know this, whether or not it will help you get accepted by others.
Successfully finding your way in the world is really a balancing act. It's a little bit of trying to answer questions over and over again. Who am I? Who are they? What do I want/need right now (this changes constantly)? How do I fit in?
It gets easier with practice, but there is no right answer. You can even learn to enjoy it as much as you enjoyed the swing and teeter-totter when you were a kid.

Something wonderful is happening! Yesterday I met with
a group of people who got copies of Letting It Go
a few weeks ago. They reported using the information in the
book to use Logosynthesis by themselves to make changes
in their lives that amazed them. They were incredibly
excited and I was awed! What I hoped for in writing the
book is actually happening.
And most of them asked to buy more books to share with
people they care about. In fact, when I started
thinking about it, I realized that once people tell me
how much they like the book, they tell me that after
they read it and started to use it, they gave it to
their daughter or husband or son or brother or best
This is very exciting and I keep thinking about more
and more ways that we can spread this wonderful,
magical gift I have been given.
Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic
Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only
Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®)
should now be available on all major bookselling platforms.
You can also order it through bookstores.
The truth is, there’s much more to letting people know
about this book than I can do myself. There are things
that only I can do. They include creating materials and
webpages for people who come to my website looking for
information. I haven’t done them yet.
I stop myself by thinking I should wait until
everything is done, but it never will be all done. So
as one of my teachers once said, “I’m trying to build
this bicycle while I’m riding it downhill at 50 miles
I need all the help I can get. First, if you haven’t
read the book yet, get a copy and read it now. You’ll
be glad you did. If you have read the book, please
leave a review on Amazon.com, Goodreads.com or wherever
you purchase the book. Then get an extra copy and share it
with someone you love.
I recently discovered that lots of people, me included,
are feeling lots of stress about the current political
situation. I reduced my stress using Logosynthesis and
felt much better.
I have known for a long time that I hate watching
snarky characters putting each other down on TV shows.
Until recently I considered that a sign of being uncool
and a personal weirdness. I just posted an article
about how those things are related and you can read it
Meanwhile Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic
Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words is in the
book cover design stage while I am completing the final
details of the extra material for the book. I am
excited about the early reviews.
