Pretty to Think So

SEXUALITY AFTER A CANCER DIAGNOSIS “Two days ago, the effects of the androgen-deprivation shot a doctor’s assistant had injected under my skin a month earlier kicked in. And now I don’t want.” When a cancer diagnosis, and then various treatments, eliminate libido, the echoes of love and desire in the form of memories remain.  What happens to a life when sexual expression is lost?

The Gift of Crisis

By

Approach Crisis with Self-Love, Assertiveness and Courage

You are not alone: Since the start of the recession, 8.8 million jobs have been lost, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley was one of those 8.8 million people who lost their jobs. Between 2007 and 2014, she was also one of 7.3 million homeowners who lost their homes to foreclosure. Some affected by job loss and foreclosure, due to the economic downturn, were able to bounce back relatively emotionally unscathed. Many, however, internalized the outer events as a negative reflection of their personal capacities without taking a deeper look at the crisis as a potential underlying catalyst. In The Gift of Crisis, Bridgitte shows you how to explore crisis as a tool for courageous change, regaining your self-esteem with self-love and self-compassion.

Regain control with assertiveness: Although a personal economic crisis can be viewed as an externally-influenced event that is somehow both beyond your control and within your control, it can also be an opportunity to examine the conscious and sub-conscious conditions that brought the experience into your life. It was through experiences of prolonged financial crisis that Bridgitte realized she subconsciously co-created experiences that felt so bad until the only place she could go was within—exactly where she needed to go. In The Gift of Crisis, you will discover how helpful going within and retaking control can be for you, too.

Find space for spiritual growth: The Gift of Crisis will show how repeated crises can serve as a catalyst to reveal the underlying purpose, and how questions posed during a meditative state can reveal answers in the direction of a higher purpose. For women and men who are sincerely interested in spiritual growth, yet find it difficult to make “mental room” to dedicate to such growth due to personal distractions, this inspirational book will demonstrate the practical manner in which meditation and prayer can assist during any type of crisis as a means of reaching for a calmer, clearer, more courageous and purposeful life.

The Gift of Crisis interposes personal stories and prescriptive ideas amidst ongoing financial destitution to raise your self-esteem, self-compassion and self-love. In reading this book, you will learn how to:

  • Deepen your trust in a Higher Intelligence and in your higher purpose
  • Welcome change and embrace change with courage
  • Focus your attention on the emergence of new possibilities as a result of the crisis

If you liked Brené Brown’s inspirational book The Gifts of Imperfection, you’ll love The Gift of Crisis.

Treat yourself and heal old wounds: People may suspect that trauma from their past is affecting them negatively, but they take refuge in denial because honestly, surfacing that pain hurts. Keep Pain in the Past helps you identify and face pain, and find closure on your own.

Radical Generosity

By

Generosity Stories to Touch Your Heart and Lift Your Spirits

Gratitude and generosity go hand in hand. The more we appreciate our lives, the more we want to give to others. In Radical Generosity, best-selling author M. J. Ryan provides tools for expressing thanks. In a series of short, heart-felt essays, Ryan encourages us all to stop living from what she calls "the ledger sheet mentality" of obligatory gifting and to begin giving from the overflow of a loving heart.

Generosity is the great act of kindness that sustains the world. In her best-selling Attitudes of Gratitude, M. J. Ryan taught us the inner work of realizing the many blessings we take for granted. Now, in Radical Generosity, she presents an examination of the virtues we need to cultivate for the twenty-first century and takes a look at generosity: what creates it, what blocks it, and what the practice of generosity can bring to our lives. In her down-to-earth, accessible style, Ryan takes us to the heart of what it means to truly give, and what that giving can do not only for the recipient but for ourselves as well.

Generosity is a habit of mind and the gift of freedom. M. J. Ryan asks her readers to consider where and how they are stingy as well as where they are meant to give. And, she asks that we contemplate all the types of possible generosity, because ultimately the giving of time, energy, kind words, loving gestures, and forgiveness may matter more than any amount of money. Radical Generosity shows us how to experience joy, peace, and fulfillment when we live from a place of generosity and when we also learn how to receive.

If you have read and learned from books such as How Happiness HappensThe Complicated HeartLove Lives HereThe Laws of Human NatureThirstMake Time, or Enough; we believe you will love and learn from M. J. Ryan’s Radical Generosity.

Flipping the Script

#1 New Release in LGBT Studies and Biographies & Memoirs ─ Stories to Help You Persevere

Live Through the Hardships: Life is complicated and messy, but every now and then life gives you a syndicated talk show on a major network – and then fires you for being “all icing and no cake.”  Then it sends your born-again Christian sister to take you out to lunch on your birthday, only to tell you she suddenly believes you can pray the gay away and that you should’ve used your time on the show do more for Christ.  Then, because there’s always another “then,” you receive a tax bill from Uncle Sam that almost sends you out your tenth-floor bathroom window…literally.  Luckily, AJ Gibson chose to step back and share his struggles because, well…not today Satan!  He knows what it’s like when life feels like a never-ending roller coaster, and in his self-help book Flipping the Script, he doesn’t sugar coat the truth.  After all, this isn’t Hollywood, errr…anymore.

Know You’re Not Alone: AJ’s journey from a closeted gay boy from Ohio to that guy people kinda, sorta recognize from TV and Hollywood seems glossy, but the truth is anything but.  In Flipping the Script, AJ shows how his life has been a series of personal roadblocks and rock bottom moments.  Every time he thinks he’s in the clear, he finds a new way to crash and burn.  Let’s just say insecurity was once a pretty close friend of his, so he knows what you feel like whenever you find yourself scrolling social media comparing yourself to others.  Luckily, he’s a pretty smart guy and moderately witty, always finding his way out of life’s rock bottom moments – and you can too!

Turn Bad Situations Around: AJ has a gift for shifting his perspective, turning crappy situations around and finding a way to persevere each time the world seems to be telling him he was born to fail.  Through all of the mess, all of the hardships, he somehow manages to keep a smile on his face and a roof over his head.  He also knows that we all have problems and he’s here to help.  The true stories in Flipping the Script will make you laugh, encourage you to keep fighting for happiness and inspire you to turn your own rock bottom moments into your proudest accomplishments!

Feel Empowered: AJ’s “Hollywood” situation may be unique, but his struggles are definitely relatable.  After all, you’d be hard-pressed to find a person who has achieved success without problems – especially in the LGBTQ community.  As a proud gay man working in the entertainment capital of the world, AJ’s personal and professional stories will leave you feeling empowered and a little less defeated.  Flipping the Script will give you the strength to overcome your own personal roadblocks.  In his book, AJ shares tips and tricks in the form of “Script Rewrites” at the end of each chapter that will help you persevere and find your true purpose. 

Flipping the Script will rip your heart out, make you want to fight somebody, and leave you feeling like you can solve world hunger – all in a single chapter.  You will:

  • feel deeply connected, knowing you’re not alone in your struggles
  • have simple, real world tools to help you bounce back and live the life you were created to live
  • see yourself as the wonderful, creative, capable human being that you have always been – but forgot somewhere along the way
