From the bestselling author of Practical Intuition comes a groundbreaking book about using the power of crisis to transform one's life.
Crisis is inevitable, but Day (Practical Intuition), a self-described "intuitive healer" and "beacon for people in crisis," believes crisis can be a catalyst for change. She relates her own tragedies: her mother committed suicide when Day was 14; years later, her marriage ended, leaving Day impoverished and with a newborn son to raise. She relates how she learned to let go of her former life and reinvent herself by penning a bestselling self-help manual and within a few years had earned almost $4 million. Most readers won't be so fortunate in recovering from their crises, but Day presents a wide variety of exercises such as making a list of people you can reach out to and rewriting your "personal mythology" that can assist those struggling through emotional hard times. The main thing, she says, is to go on with daily tasks that keep you grounded, from paying bills to exercising. One should avoid letting rumination, recrimination and a need for retribution which keep one mired in the past interfere with future possibilities.

Far More Helpful than Expected
As a result of reading this book, I expect to move through my current sub-crisis in a quicker, more efficient and complete manner. Laura Day really helped me to better understand the context of my situation for which I previously had no frame of reference. It also helps that the text and exercises are simple, straightforward and kind.
At times she could be redundant but the end result is that it's your crisis and you can make lemonade when life is serving you sour lemons. Re-read it and sent it as gifts to friends in need.
