It is available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble. But the “award” she is most proud of is the hundreds of lives she has helped turn from pain to happiness through this work.
It’s hard to believe, when you see how happy I am now, that I spent these past four years being the most miserable I’ve ever been. It’s hard to believe, when you see the smile on my face and hear me laughing so much, that I was ever with a man who would treat me as shitty as ________ treated me.” So yeah, now when I think, “You don’t know what I’ve been through,” I realize that’s because IT’S OVER and I NEVER HAVE TO GO BACK to that. I don’t need to keep recounting what happened. I can let it go. People now don’t know what I’ve been through, and they never have to know because I won’t give it enough of my attention to tell them! All they need to know is how wonderful, amazing, happy, beautiful, successful, hopeful, and radiant I AM.
It’s really great working with you. Obviously it came into my life at just the right time, and really helped me through a very rough patch. I’m still dealing with a lot of feelings, and I now know I can cope, and even do more than cope, actually find happiness again. Thank you for appearing out of the blue and helping me through.
I can say for myself that it was a pleasure to meet you, and I feel very safe working out my separation and ultimate divorce with you as a coach. I vow to work with utmost integrity and honesty. As difficult as it is to leave after 34 years, I want to do so in a sensible, mature and as gentle a manner as possible.
You are a very holistic person – dedicated to every aspect of growing as a person. Humble and tender. You are ‘the light at the end of the tunnel’ on this journey of healing. You give me a certain hope that life is going to get better.
I so appreciate how you share about your own personal experience of divorce. Seeing you gives me hope that i can be ‘put back together’ eventually. I also appreciate how you accept how each of us manifests our pain .
Jeannine, thank you so much for the experiences, the insights and the fresh point of views, the compassion and caring, the willingness to keep listening and giving hope.
